Work Smarter

Being productive is not a function of busy.  It could, in fact, be that busy is the new lazy!

I caught up with a client (and friend) recently, and I remarked that it had been a long time since we spoke.  She replied, “I’ve been super busy”. 

Then she paused and said, “Actually, that’s not true.  Busy is the new lazy and I hate referring to my time as busy.  Actually, I have just not been able to prioritise giving you a call.”

I thought that was not just a smart reframe on her behalf but a brave one.  Telling someone they are not a priority is a tough thing to say, however it is true!  

When we say, “we are too busy”, or “we don’t have time”, what we are really saying is, “I haven’t prioritised that”.

I think it’s about time we owned this!  What are you currently not prioritising that you should, because you are “too busy”?

Could you begin to design your days towards productivity rather than busy-ness?
