14: Busy Work: Why It’s Keeping You Stuck

Busy Work: Why It’s Keeping You Stuck

Are you ready to continue our discussion about the three types of work? 

We’ve covered thought work and focus work, so now it’s time to talk about busy work. 

The dictionary definition of busy work: work that keeps a person busy but has little value in itself.

We’re talking about why our brains beeline to busy work, how to get away from doing busy work and what your business will look like when you do.

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • What busy work is
  • Why your brain beelines to busy work
  • How to get away from busy work 
  • What it means to be stuck in passive action
  • Taking action until you get the result you want
  • How going to the grocery store is taking massive action 

Are you taking massive action or passive action? If it’s the latter, what needs to change to get you from passive to massive?
