Summary of learning messages
Being busy is a state of mind
‘Busy-ness’ is not a badge of honour showing how hard you work
To change our mindset, first we need acceptance and then we need perspective
We can’t do everything we’d like to do. We need to accept that and put our tasks into perspective
Change your terminology
Being ‘too busy’ means not being very effective. Being ‘productive’ means getting things done well.
