* Quality Over Quantity Or Quantity Over Quality?

The current idea of busyness doesn’t necessarily put in ‘quality of work’ as an important factor, instead, ‘quantity of work’ becomes the deciding factor.

When we place priorities in the wrong areas it does end up being counter-productive and instead of actually getting things done we might only be wasting precious time.

It’s necessary to keep track of how and what you spend your time. Know if the time you spend on doing something is actually for something ‘productive ‘ or is it just being busy.

A definite point of importance is that when we become so fixated in our own lives doing ‘productive’ work, we tend to have less time for things that actually matter, like our own physical and mental health.

Being ‘busy ‘ isn’t something you’re forced to do, it’s a life choice – something you make and continue.

Think about it, how many times have you criticized yourself because you didn’t do ‘enough work ‘ or you didn’t ‘work harder ‘?

When we’re constantly under stress and lose work-life balance (which is a consequence of hustle cultre) we tend to mess with our attention span, and the constant pressure from work and personal life harms the cognitive bandwidth.

No, it’s hard to say that everything about hustle cultre or being busy is bad. But it’s definitely a point to note that these do glorify the idea of constantly being on the go and working and have even made it the norm for today’s generation to constantly be working and measuring their own self w...

Being busy is just about passing time doing things that seem productive,while actually, using time for things that support growth is real productivity.

Glorifying the idea of always being busy tends to make us much more about self and can, in a sense, make our thoughts and actions even more selfish.

• It might make us feel important to be constantly busy and get that validation from society. But remember that the same busyness has long term effects on your health.
