Don’t Mistake Movement for Progress

Just Because You're busy (3)

Wednesday’s Wisdom: Don’t Mistake Movement For Progress.

Today, take a look at where you are spending your time and energy. Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you’re getting anything done.


Spend major energy on major tasks. Spend minor energy on minor tasks. At the end of the day, examine your results. Celebrate honest productivity. Learn from complacency.

Pay Attention To Avoidance.

Pay attention to avoidance.  Avoidance is often instruction incognito. The things we avoid, are usually the very things we need to pursue.

While we are away from our office all we can think about is getting that huge project done. The moment we are back at our desk, it seems we are consumed with doing everything but what that project requires us to do.

It’s easy to see it. It’s harder to do it.

Celebrate Authentic Accomplishment.

Make a list. Check it twice. Celebrate authentic accomplishment – the things you wanted to do, and did. Reward yourself only for authentic genuine effort that resulted in progress.

Keep it real. Just because you’re busy, doesn’t mean you’re getting anything done.
