Are you Busy or Productive?Mar 31, 2021
Have you ever felt like you're working all the time but…..
don't seem actually to get much accomplished, at the end of the day?
Daily, someone is sharing with me how busy they are. They describe how their day is filled with bouncing from one project to the next, multi-tasking personal and business tasks that keep them consumed all day.
With all that activity going on, my question is, "at the end of the day, how productive are you?"
If you are not finishing tasks, completing projects, and pushing your agenda forward every day...then you are merely.... busy rather than productive.
In the pace to meet stressful deadlines and fulfill constant demands, people overwhelmingly work day-in and day-out to get their tasks done.
You look at your "to-do" list at the end of the day,
and STILL have a long list of things you DIDN'T do?
(Does this resonate with anyone?)
Here's the thing, often people confuse being "busy" with being productive, but being "busy" does not guarantee productivity!!
BEING PRODUCTIVE MEANS MUCH MORE
It's not about how much is on your schedule; instead, it's about whether your daily activities are making you more productive, or merely keeping you busy.
Often folks are so "busy" that they lack the focus needed to be productive, so, if you want to maximize your pivot, grow your business, or start a business, start by being intentional about how you manage your time, attention, and energy.

Sometimes your "motivation" alone is not strong enough to pull you through the rough and challenging times, especially if you feel like you aren't making any considerable progress. It’s time to move from “busy” to productive today!
