There is a big difference between being busy and being productive, in all walks of life.
It is all too easy to gain a sense of fulfillment from being busy, but how much is actually being achieved?
Are you allocating your time to what's really going to get you to your goals?
Are you choosing the path of least resistance, or ticking off the easy tasks that don't really push the needle?
These are questions that we can all ask ourselves, and I'll be the first to admit I often fall into this trap.
If you take 10 steps sideways you are moving, but no closer to the destination.
Take steps forward with conviction and purpose.
