3 Things I’ve Learned About Busyness

1 – Being busy doesn’t equal creating value. It’s easy to be busy. Maybe we stay busy to avoid the hard thing. Maybe we’re tired and can’t muster the energy to do more than look busy.

2 – It takes energy, focus and priorities to create value. When we have a guiding priority we are able to prioritize everything around what is important to us. Sure we’ll all slide into being busy from time to time yet our priorities will allow us to catch ourselves and get back on track.

3 – Only we know when we are busy rather than industrious, sometimes others won’t be able to tell the difference but we can. We will create more satisfaction for ourselves by being industrious and creating value with our time and energy.

About This Little Agency: Back in 2007, in a little town on the southern border of Washington State, Trevor and Kama Wilson braved the naysayers saying it was absurd to try to earn their full-time income together online. Despite criticism and even moving into a single car garage for awhile so they could pursue their dream, they worked unearthly hours, studied endlessly, made costly mistakes, and figured out how to make their entire income online. After successfully running 700 websites (and living entirely and well off the profits), they opened Smitten (formerly Peppermint) to use their inborn, honed obsessions for alluring design, captivating content and personable branding to help other business owners get more ❤ too.
