Are You Staying Busy Doing Nothing?


by Brandon Steiner September 07, 2016 0 Comments

Author Stephen Covey wrote in his bestseller “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” that it’s important to “begin with the end in mind.”  He discussed that phrase in detail by indicating: “knowing where you’re going so that you can better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.”

According to Covey, many of us stay busy completing things that are insignificant –things that are of little value.  If these trivial things ultimately end up assisting us in completing our long-term goals, then we are on the right track. However, more often than not, people tend to get caught up in the cycle of staying active without actually being productive.

Traveling in the right direction (working towards goals) and not losing sight of your destination (goals) are two important factors when it comes to actually achieving something.

It’s easy to get thrown off track and lose sight. That’s why it’s critical to write your goals down on paper.

To stay on track:
  • Write your goals down on paper
  • Look at them every day
  • Work towards achieving them
