Do not mistake being being busy with being productive
Just because you show up at work every day doesn’t mean you are getting anything done. I can go to work or return emails and go to meetings but these activities don’t lead to accomplishing anything.
Are you a busy bee?
Busy people say yes to everything – Productive people think about the repercussions of saying yes and only take on what will help them accomplish their key goals.
Busy people never finish their to-do list – Productive people pick a few goals a day to achieve.
Busy People Multitask – Productive people stick to one task at a time. Doing three things at once may make you feel like you’re being super productive but research shows you are actually shit at multitasking.
If you’re fed up of being a busy bee then reflect at the end of the day and ask yourself 2 simple questions;
- Did you achieve your goals? How close were you to achieving you goals?
- Sort your tomorrow out. Do you have a routine in place to get the absolute most out of tomorrow?
