Busy is out of control

One of the two podcasts I listen to regularly is The Tim Ferriss Show.  (The other is Ziglar).

I first heard this quote there.

This week I haven't been busy.  I've been in control.

Too often I take the challenge at work - see how many items I can check off my task list.  See how many calls I can take.  See if I can clean my desk files up before the next call.  I go and go - and at the end of the day I say "Wow!  Look at all the things I got done!"

But were they really important?  Did they move me toward a long term goal?  Or was it just a way of making the day go quickly?

The interesting thing about this week - I haven't been busy but I've gotten a lot accomplished.  And it's been a lot of important items.
