“There’s a difference between being busy and being productive.”

Becoming a new mom and starting a new job working from home during a pandemic, uncertainty was an understatement and time was more precious than ever. Time to sleep, time to work, time to do all of the things AND time to breathe… maybe. I was on a quest to figure it all out when I came across this quote: There’s a difference between being busy and being productive.

 

Busy people are determined to fit more things on their to-do list. I was looking to cut mine in half. I realized I needed to create a system where I could focus on getting things done, so I could also take a break and refresh. This quote has helped me focus my energy on what matters most.

Q. My colleagues would describe me as...

A dose of positive energy with an amazing work ethic and top-notch art direction and design skills.

Q. When I’m not at work you can find me…

Trying to slow down so I can experience life through my daughter’s eyes – she’s 2.
