I understand you have lots to do.
Your days always fill up with tasks. But have you ever thought, if you didn’t go to work today, would it really slow down your projects that much? If not, you’ve got a problem.
It’s so easy to “keep busy”. We have things we do out of habit, we have obligations, and we have legitimately urgent things to do. But are they all important?
Are these the actions that will get us closer to completion, or closer to our goals.
Keeping busy feels productive, but actually being productive affects outcomes.
