Sometimes it can feel like I have a serious case of the busies – yes, it’s truly an issue, and a very real one at that. To have the busies means that you are caught in a cycle of constantly doing, moving, working. Task after task, always going, going, going, yet you really couldn’t say just where you’re going or what you’re accomplishing, and I mean really accomplishing. Being busy and being productive are two very different things. So many times busy = productive, and actually it truly couldn’t be further from the truth. To be busy, you just do. You just go. It’s mindless, automatic, not exactly fulfilling, just because, stuff to do. To be productive, you focus on the task at hand, finding satisfaction in a job well done and you feel accomplished and good as you do it. When I’m feeling like I’m stuck in a rut, more often then not it’s because I’ve become busy instead of productive. I’ve turned on my autopilot and stopped paying attention, causing a grumpy, bored, and dulled mindset. With this in mind I leave you with an extra Monday Mantra…
