Busy-ness is impressive. It puts you in the heat of the action. It gives you an elevated sense of importance. You’re always late for social engagements, barely have enough time for family get-togethers, and hardly get a moment’s sleep. […] Of course, it’s all just an illusion
While the “busy” people in my office number in the hundreds, the “productive” can be counted on a single hand. I wish it weren’t like that. (via 37Signals)
Working from home in a pretty much un-supervised environment the whole concept of being “busy” is useless because there is nobody here to see me being busy.
