Rushing to Mediocrity

Seth Godin on working in an urgent-only culture. An excerpt:

Add up enough urgencies and you don't get a fire, you get a career. A career putting out fires never leads to the goal you had in mind all along.

He's on target. Are we making real progress or simply in a constant struggle to restore the status quo?
