There’s a difference between busy work and meaningful work. As Thomas Edison put it, “Seeming to do is not doing.” You need to check in with yourself and see which one you’re giving your time to. Busy is not a badge of honor; it leads to greatness only if you’re working for a purpose and making progress toward goals that serve it. There’s only so much time; it’s a limited resource, and you can’t buy more of it. So it behooves you to use your time as efficiently as possible, giving it to what matters most. Take steps to reject busy-ness as badge of honor. Choose real purpose instead, and it’ll be clear where you should invest your time.
