Keeping Yourself Busy All Day Long Doesn’t Mean That You’re Productive. You’re Simply Procrastinating.

There is a big difference between keeping busy and being productive. How can you shift into making time to spend on the right tasks? You can use three simple ways to do this. You have to reduce the number of reactive tasks, create more proactive tasks and learn when to say no to the wrong tasks.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many people like postponing challenging work tasks by completing the ones that don’t require much cognitive power first.
  • Reactive tasks are those tasks that are somewhat urgent and maybe even important but don’t have a high long-term value.
  • There are plenty of reactive tasks that need to be done at work, like replying to email
