#21. Where Is Your Produce Section?

Being busy is not the same as being productive. Productivity - activity that produces a desired and predictable outcome - should be the goal, not busyness. Seemingly, in todays' economy, we want to get "paid" by the hour rather than being compensated for producing a desired and predictable product. 

Why do you think the area in the grocery store, where vegetables and fruits are kept, is often called the "produce" section? Maybe, because it's where the products are displayed that are the proof of productivity. A farmer, focused his or her activity and "produced" an outcome - fruits and vegetables, a.k.a "produce".

We work a lot of hours, but rarely have much to show for it. 

Where's your "produce" section? 

Being busy doesn't automatically yield a desired outcome or product. Most of the time it just makes us more tired and frustrated. In other cultures, outside of the USA, to be "busy" is equal to loosing oneself. So instead of getting busy or  "loosing oneself," focus your actions on a desired and predictable outcome; something, at the end of the day, you can feel good about, something that was worth all the energy you invested.

Proverbs 6:6-11
" Go to the ant, O sluggard;
consider her ways, and be wise.
Without having any chief,
officer, or ruler,
she prepares her bread in summer and gathers her food in harvest. How long will you lie there, O sluggard? When will you arise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come upon you like a robber, and want like an armed man."
