the greatest mistake in life is being busy, but not effective


the greatest mistake in life is being busy, but not effective. Being busy is a common human pastime. But just because you’re busy doesn’t mean that what you’re doing is worth doing. Many people deceive themselves into believing that being busy all the time gives their lives significance. Significance has nothing to do with busyness but everything to do with effectiveness. Jesus of Nazareth was the most effective person who ever lived but He was never busy. Everything Jesus did had purpose. He knew what He was supposed to do and did it, and that made Him effective. It is a tragedy to waste time and energy on unfocused busyness because those resources, once expended, can never be regained. We must learn how to live effectively without being busy. Myles Munroe
