"Do not mistake activity for progress."
I hear so many people in the real estate business say they are really "busy" these days. I often wonder what that actually means.
The thesaurus indicates the word busy is comparable to: "having a great deal to do", "occupied", "engaged", "involved", "hard at work", and a few more. Being busy, apparently, does not necessarily mean being productive.
When you are talking about your business, can you add the word "productive" after the word "busy"? For example, if someone asks you "How are you doing in the real estate business these days?" Can you say "busy and productive"? Or do you just say "busy"? If you can't honestly add "productive" to your reply, you might want to re-evaluate the way you are conducting your business. How can you be more efficient and productive and less "busy"?
For a little more insight, check out the brief article entitled:
"Don't Mistake Activity For Achievement".
As, the late great Earl Nightingale used to say:
"You can keep busy in a rocking chair, but you won't get anyplace."
Here's to a productive week!
