Used to be, I thought being super-busy was a sign of … oh, I don’t know … Greatness? Fabulous business acumen? Being in demand?

But after reflecting on this week, I realize I’ve done what Benjamin Franklin says never to:  confuse motion with action.

Was I in motion? Sure. Did anything move forward? Not so much.

Because of poor delegation (and less-than ideal priority-setting), I was so full of activity that none of the important things could get in.

It’s like the Zen story of The Empty Cup.  Listen in, and post a comment below to let me know what you think.
