Working a 10-hour day is not the same as being “busy.” If you’re truly putting in 10-hour days, it should be because the work you’re currently doing requires you to be there for exactly ten hours.
“Busy” does not guarantee that you are making strides and growing your business.
“Busy” means you are probably doing a lot of work you shouldn’t be doing in the first place.
“Busy” means you secretly want recognition for your efforts, or for someone to commend you for your “hustle.”
“Busy” means there is a good chance you’ve let things get out of control.
The reality is this: succeeding entrepreneurs are rarely “busy.” Sure, there are seasons of their business where “busy” describes their current circumstances. But there’s a 0% chance they are sitting next to you telling you about it during those periods of time. Chances are they are some place off the grid getting things done. … More “Busy” Is Not a Badge of Honor, It’s what’s killing your dreams
