If there is a social badge we’ve adopted in nearly every circle, it’s the badge of busy-ness.
We tell our wives how busy we are. We tell our church group. We tell our confidants. We tell strangers at cocktail parties.
Newsflash – this is how it should be. We should all be doing, creating, learning, serving, and finding. Efficiently.
The problem arrives when we flash our badge of busy-ness to create to the illusion we’re being efficient.
Busy lives are dim.
Efficient lives shine.
Trading busy-ness for efficiency is going to require trading what you like to do for what you should be doing.
Make the trade.
Efficiency gets us closer to fulfillment. Fulfillment of goals and fulfilment of dreams. I think that’s what we’re all after…at least I am.
