One definition of intelligence is the ability to distinguish between the essential and the less important, especially in moments of crisis. An intelligent person can sort information, tasks and challenges. For example, a poet can enjoy details, cobwebs and entanglements, but we expect leaders to have the ability to sort and focus on the essentials. Related to this is the important ability to prioritize, solve things step by step and check off tasks. If I aim at all the targets at once, I will not hit anywhere.
