Why You Shouldn't Be Busy - As I Learn With Gal Ezra

They say, "if you want something done, give it to a busy person".

Sounds good. But why?

If you were to give it to a busy person, won't they just not get to it and not get it done?

What you actually want is to give it to a productive person. There are busy people that are busy doing nothing, but productive people get quantities of work done in a totally done manner.

What do I mean? They handle it fully. It's not half done... needs to be done again. No, productive people get a product, it's complete, it's ready.

A product can be within your organization. If my marketing guy creates an awesome image for social media, that's a product, it doesn't mean I have to sell it to someone else. It's a product within the organization. We can use it, it can bring us results. Or a product can be, you're a factory that creates bottles, and that's the product that you sell. So it depends, a product can be internal or external.

What you need to do is think about, "how can I get a product with what I'm doing? Can I give my boss a done product?". If I'm the owner, what is my product and am I getting it done? Am I doing it right? Is everything being handled fully?

That is what a productive person does and that is what you need to do. Give the work to productive people, not busy people.
