Productive or Busy?

Yesterday, I checked in with my brother Donald R. Gaddy II to see how his week was starting off. After telling me his was going well, he asked how mine is and I responded “Busy but good.” He told me to knock the word busy out of my vocabulary and that I am being productive. Doesn’t that sound so much better? Anyone can be busy. Busy is not always good. Busy can be hectic while yielding no fruits, but productivity is the goal. If you’re busy but not producing, what are you doing?

So, take a note from Mr. Gaddy’s book. Don’t keep busy. Be productive with your time and intentional with your word choice.


Make professional development a priority.
