Don’t Be Busy. Be Productive.

The most over-used word in the English language today is “Busy.”  It has become a default answer and a default excuse in our culture.  As my friend Danny Rosin has said, people wear it like a badge of honor.  “I’m busy” they say as if they are bragging. 
In addition, so much of the time, it is a complaint or an excuse.  “I would love to do something meaningful, but I’m busy.” It’s BS.
The goal today should have nothing to do with “busy.”  Your goal should be to be “productive.”  It’s totally different. 
Side exercise:  Try to go for one full month without using the word “busy.”  The word has become so pervasive; it’s harder than you think!
