Why Being Busy Does Not Equal Being Productive

I used to believe that being busy was something to strive for and the busier you are the better. I thought being busy meant having a lot of things done and when people would ask me what I’m doing, I’d reply with “I am very busy right now” or tell them that I am swamped with work.

Twitter Chat for Entrepreneurs

When I’m procrastinating doing things I really should do (like writing blog posts!) I can be found online on the internet, just casually scrolling and surfing.

In design, designers may offer a behind-the-scenes to show how much work can go into creating something simple as a way to demonstrate that design actually, isn’t easy and something that any five year old can do. I love to see other artists’ process because there is always something to learn from them. You can learn anything from the resources they use in their work or their methods. Today I’m going to share my own process and I hope that you can get something out of it.
