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.
