Being busy does not mean you are being productive. You could be wasting your time and talent focusing on “low return” tasks that rob you of your time without accomplishing anything meaningful.
How many times have you said “I am so busy,” but you found yourself not really accomplishing anything.
Take a step back from all of your “busyness” to discover and explore what your gifts are.
Know that you have limited strengths, and strive to excel where you are gifted.
Don’t allow your time to be taken up in areas where you’re weaker, because then you’re not at your best.
Don’t confuse activity with accomplishment. Be busy with what you are good at and delegate the rest.
As you narrow your focus, you will broaden the opportunities to shine with your strengths.
Learn how to manage your actions and carefully choose how to spend your time.
Identify time-wasters and implement solutions to eliminate them.
Stop saying “I am so busy,” and start knowing you are so productive.
