Busyness is a Mirage of Productivity

Many of us believe that if we’re busy, we are productive. Yet, that’s a chimera. 

Many times, we may be doing busy work, but we are not productive, but just plugging away doing random things that don’t help us to complete our goals.

Therefore, it’s important for us to ensure that when we sit down to write, we do so in a focused and intentional way.

This may mean that you have to remove any technological devices from your immediate environment. Or, you may have to go into a room that doesn’t have a phone or other distractions, such as pets or a spouse.

Whatever you do, make sure that you find some space to be genuinely productive and not merely busy.

Try it!
