Brad Bollenbach:

Busy-ness is impressive. It puts you in the heat of the action. It gives you an elevated sense of importance. You’re always late for social engagements, barely have enough time for family get-togethers, and hardly get a moment’s sleep. […] Of course, it’s all just an illusion

While the busy” people in my office number in the hundreds, the productive” can be counted on a single hand. I wish it weren’t like that. (via 37Signals)
