Everyone is busy these days and for some reason we feel like it’s a badge of honor to be busy and that we need to share just how busy we are with everyone we know. Being busy doesn’t mean shit though. It means you’re busy, it doesn’t mean you’re actually getting anything done, being productive or achieving anything worthwhile. It means you haven’t bothered to organize yourself and that’s why busy is the new lazy as today’s guest Val Geisler will elaborate on. She’s got some great productivity tips and systems that will help you go from busy to actually getting shit done.
