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.
