Confusing being busy with moving forward

Bridge to visionIt can feel like we’re working very hard. We probably are working very hard. But are we working on the right things?

We’re responding to all sort of external inputs and handling them well – keeping everybody happy.

For the time being anyway.

From the outside though, it can be clear we’re hardly moving forward at all. We’re really just standing still. Much of what we do may have little lasting significance.

To prepare properly for the future just round the corner, we need to get off the busy-work and pay attention to those tasks which are are probably less well-defined, less immediate, and less insistent.

The ones which will make a difference.

In a harsh world…

There’s no points for being busy.

Only for moving forward.
