We control 3 fundamental resources.

  • Time: How we spend and optimize. Limited and non-renewable.
  • Money: What we acquire/experience and its quality.
  • Attention: What we move toward or filter out.

Time and priorities themselves cannot be actively managed; all of these resources are used specifically by deciding what actions we should take.rA1
