Effectiveness vs. Busyness

I'm not impressed that you worked a 12 hour day.
I'm impressed that you worked 6 hours with unwavering focus.

I'm not impressed that you feel stressed out.
I'm impressed that you are creating value while also taking care of your health and wellness.

Busyness is no virtue, but effectiveness is.

So unhook your self-worth from your work ethic, then create with savvy intention.

After diving into the Foundations to Core course in web development, in about a year, Geraldo was working at an excellent role at a firm, providing for his family (sans oil rig)!
