Busyness hides under the guise of productivity and success, and those who live busy lives own it like a badge of honor. There’s being busy in thought, with obsessive worry and uncontrolled thoughts, and busy in action, being consumed with meaningless activities or other people’s agendas. Being busy doesn’t make you productive. Being busy won’t make you successful. Rejecting the cult of busyness by saying “no” to time-wasting activities, thoughts, and people, and getting focused in your life is what will take you to the top and bring you success.
