Be Productive, Not Just Busy!

Be Productive ~ Not Just Busy!
Life can feel like a busy train station full of people scurrying off in all different directions. There are people going here, things happening over there, all kinds of busy stuff going on just about everywhere you look. But in the middle of all this busyness, what exactly is getting done?
 
On a daily basis there are millions of people who are busy all day long but rarely, if ever, accomplish anything of importance.  It isn’t that these people lack talent or fail to put in enough effort into the task; they simply lack clarity and an intentional blueprint.
 
Many people cannot see the difference between being busy and being productive. These individuals mistakenly believe that if they’re busy then they must be getting something done, but in most cases that’s simply not what has happened.
 
Getting it done is the name of the game. Getting things done takes focus, focusing in on whatever you wish to achieve, then creating that intentional blueprint to make it happen for you.
All the daily running around won’t accomplish much of anything if you’re not using your time productively. Unless you focus on the tasks at hand, you can get lost in the busy rush of your life. Instead of aimlessly going about your tasks and not getting much of anything accomplished, why not try to set your goals a different way?
Concentrate your time and talents on doing whatever it takes to get the job done and see what happens? Begin by writing down your goals and the steps you need to take to reach them. For example: If your goal is to complete your vision board by June 15th, then start by writing down what your future goals are, what supplies you’ll need to make the vision board, where you’ll be getting these supplies from and so on. Create a timeline and check off what you’ve accomplished as you go along.
 
By writing your goals down on paper and focusing on completing them, not only will you stop wasting your days, you will begin to reach your goals; one goal after another.
What’s more gratifying than finishing what you’ve begun? To take an idea or a dream and then make it come true through persistent, focused effort is truly one of the most satisfying feelings you’ll ever experience. No matter what it is that you wish to achieve in life, the only way to get it done is to, quite simply… do it.
You need to forget about being busy and focus your full attention on making your dreams come true. Focus your sights on accomplishing your grandest dreams. Then get to work to make those dreams come true.
Get focused, get going, have fun and get it done.
