What is the difference between being busy and being active?
A1 I keep thinking of the term "busy work."
I used to talk about "widget tasks" on our Marketing Momentum podcast... In reality, the widget tasks were a case of being busy but getting something done that needed to get done, while decompressing #SocialCafe
A2: Caught in the chains of "much doing" means (to me) that you are so focused on tasks that they become more "mechanical" and not "meaningful". It helps to be able to step back and evaluate...#SocialCafe— Dan MacDougall (@Dan_MacDougallx) July 24, 2019
What can you use to measure if a step will be activity or purposeful action?
A3: Does the step move you closer to a goal, objective or simply something positive! #SocialCafe— Dan MacDougall (@Dan_MacDougallx) July 24, 2019
A3) Working backwards from vision to mission to goals to action plans (as I do) I know ahead of time that all of my actions are designed to further progress against specific goals. I find that easier to manage and it makes me much more productive. #socialcafe— Tom Reid (@_TomGReid) July 24, 2019
What happens to your mind and body when you stay busy?
That is sometimes hard for folks to internalize. You do not need to make significant changes to make progress. One step forward is still one step toward the goal!#SocialCafe— Dan MacDougall (@Dan_MacDougallx) July 24, 2019
What habits can you build to keep you moving in a purposeful way?
