If busy is lazy, then focused is…

Tim Ferriss not being lazyOn my travels hither and yon in the car, I’m listening to a book by Rolf Potts called Vagabonding. As I desire to become a vagabond in the next couple of years, I am completely in love with this book.
Now, most of this fabulous book focuses on travel, but one particular quote by Tim Ferriss (author of The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body) caught my attention in a business way.

If you’ve been reading my stuff for any amount of time, you know that I say, “Busy is a bullsh!t word. Say something real instead.”

Tim Ferriss takes this idea a delicious step further by stating:

“…being busy can be a form of laziness. Lazy thinking and indiscriminate action. Being selective – in other words doing less in a smart way – is usually the more productive and fun path. Focus on the quality…instead of the quantity.”


Busy = Lazy, indiscriminate actions

Selective = Smart, productive, and fun

AND it fits beautifully with my recent theme of baby steps and focus.

Where in your day, week or month are simply too “busy?” It’s just all chaos, all the time?

What if you took a big breath and slowed down? Picked one or two things to focus on and took action only on those things?

I don’t know about you, but just thinking about taking a deep breath and slowing down makes me feel better. Less frazzled. Less stressed. Less chaotic.

Not being overly busy is smart. More productive. And (Tim and I both agree) FUN!
