Not everyone who is busy is annoying
Minutes after posting yesterday “If you have â€œtoo much to doâ€ or â€œnot enough time,â€ youâ€™re not getting more done. Youâ€™re annoying.“, I realized I overstated myself.
I realized it because I met a friend working on a small number of projects and getting them done, but still busy.
I realized I wrongly included him and people like him who know their priorities in the larger group of people who don’t know their priorities or how to act on them.
To people working on projects with a minimum amount of complexity, who chose them thoughtfully and deliberately, who are acting according to their values, and who are making progress on their work, sorry if I called you annoying.
