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.
“Love of Bustle Is Not Industry” – Seneca
