Be Clear About What You’re Doing
Never confuse movement with action. – Ernest Hemingway
We’ve all had a nice three-day weekend (well, most of us, here in the USA) and we’re headed back to “work” today.
* * *
As you do so, regularly ask yourself if what you’re doing is useful?
Building your skills and abilities?
Bringing value to your organization?
Creating something that matters?
* * *
If not, stop doing it and do something else.
Just because you’re moving doesn’t mean you’re acting.
Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean what you’re doing is worth the effort.
