Many among us (especially those with the Type-A personalities) get consumed by "the project." They hyperfocus on today's big project. To be sure, these gitter-doners regularly get a lot done.
Often, however, these same task-oriented folks leave a trail of hurt feelings and damaged relationships in their wake. Their penchant for prioritizing the project at the expense of the people working on the project is detrimental to their long-term relationships with those very same (and often talented) players.
Worth remembering is that people are projects, too. We're each an ongoing work of art (even if rudimentary) that requires persistent attention to our development.
