Busy Is Not The Problem

by | Jan 30, 2022

A key focus of mine with new clients is to help them prioritize themselves first and to eliminate “busy” as an excuse.

I recently read two blog posts by my favorite author ‘Seth Godin’ and wanted to share as they wonderfully exemplify today’s lesson:​

The Trap of Busy by Seth Godin​​

“Everyone who wants to be busy is busy. But not everyone is productive. Busy is simply a series of choices about how to spend the next minute. Productive requires skill, persistence and good judgment. Productive means that you have created something of value. Perhaps your self-created busy-ness is causing you to be less productive.

“​Busy Is Not The Point by 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.”

If you feel you don’t spend enough time each and every day for your own health and strength, then I invite you to think about the above and see how this perspective may be able to improve your situation.
