Does urgent trump important?

I read a post from Seth Godin recently focusing on the fatal dilemma of focusing on the urgent matters often in lieu of important matters. He puts it in simple English what the perceived versus real trade off is between the two. I venture to guess that he is suggesting to focus on the important item that can impact the long-term and help avoid the urgent. Sometimes you can’t, which means that it’s a matter of time management and prioritization so we don’t focus exclusively focusing on putting out fires versus figuring out how to prevent them in the first place.
