I’ve been more of the first and less of the second this week. I was afraid to write a to do list because, hey, who wants to see a list that long. I had plenty to do and not enough time to do it in. To the point today, about midday I threw in the towel.
I was wandering, meandering, aimlessly through the digital world and getting nothing done. I don’t mean I was distracted by Twitter or Pinterest or anything, I couldn’t even focus on them.
Sometimes I think being busy is a state of mind. And it’s relative to each and every person. And today, for most of this week, I was being busy, and getting. nothing. done.
It was time to step away from the computer, and the work, and just be for a while. A Control+Alt+Delete of my own hard drive.
It was only then realised there was nothing pressing I had to do right now, that the focus of today was on several meetings with clients and school-related items. Spend some time helping No.1 with a homwork assignment, like I said I would. To get through dinner and the day, relax and plan for tomorrow.
Plan for a productive day.
So, are you being busy or productive?
Thanks Tim Ferriss
