Don’t Get Busy, Get Productive

When we feel totally overwhelmed our default reaction is often to either shut down totally or get ‘crazy busy’.
When we ‘get busy’ as a reaction to feeling overwhelmed, we are often still not really making headway. It is very often just reactive and does not really lead to progress. It is far better to be able to have a clear and focused picture of exactly what you need to do and then work smarter, not harder.
