No Points For Busy (via Seth Godin)

Leave a comment

I’m always uncomfortable when people tell me I’m busy.
(They’re always making that observation in an encouraging and sympathetic way, not as a complaint, btw)
From Seth Godin:

There’s a common safe place: Being busy.
We’re supposed to give you a pass because you were full on, all day. Frantically moving from one thing to the other, never pausing to catch your breath, and now you’re exhausted.
No points for busy.
Points for successful prioritization. Points for efficiency and productivity. Points for doing work that matters.
No points for busy.
