Believe it or not, there is a difference between being productive and just being busy. Let’s break it down by the definitions: Productive means producing or able to produce large amounts of goods or other commodities. Busy means having a great deal to do or keeping occupied. You might think at first glance, “doesn’t being productive mean keeping busy?” This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Being productive means achieving daily (micro) goals that set you up to ultimately achieve the long-term (macro) goals. This can directly affect business-driven goals within your organization because it ensures that you’re working on tasks that have a greater return on investment versus tasks that just keep you busy. In other words, work smarter not harder!

We’ve put together a list of how you can make sure you’re being productive instead of busy.

Productive is creating a strategic to-do list. Busy is compiling a to-do list to stay occupied throughout the day.

When you’re being productive, you are planning your to-do list either the day before or the morning of. Prioritize critical thinking tasks that may take more brainpower at the top and tasks with the least amount of work (that you can get away with working on the next day if you run out of time) towards the bottom. Filling up your to-do list should never be the goal. Take the less-is-more approach.
