I'm gonna start using this blog as a bit more of a diary of thought now.
I know its not quite what it was intended for, but hey.
Thirst thought to drop in:
why do all of us assume that busy means productive?
example, two people:
1. Someone doing their job, seemingly always busy, but producing less useful output than:
2. Someone who seems to just breeze through their day, taking obvious breaks and generally seeming less busy.
In a work place where quantity of work done is not easily mesaured, the busy worker will be valued higher than the efficient one.
This is a problem that applies to many work places, and many job types. It is a problem of inept managment though, and because of that, there is little that can be done about it.
