Are we productive or are we just plain busy? There is a difference between efficiency and effectiveness. Sometimes getting more done means eliminating certain things we have been doing. I look at it this way. I will only concentrate on tasks that would add value to my success goals. Anything else that does not fit in this category, I simply say NO to. Sort things out. What are the things you have been doing that does not add value to your success goals? This contributes to developing personal excellence.
