Ask anyone how things are going and more often than not, they’ll reply, "Busy." Being busy has become somewhat of a status symbol and synonym for success. Indeed, Americans are a very "busy" society, especially in the workplace. But is the culture of busy actually crushing business productivity rather than helping it?
In his latest Inc column, Tallwave CEO Jeff Pruitt explores why so many of us misconstrue busy for productive. He digs into why workplace culture is obsessed with being busy, the downsides of this attitude (such as fragmentation, burnout, and poor relationships), and makes suggestions for leaders seeking to reverse the culture of busy and instill a culture of efficiency.
