What is busy?

It is easy to be busy. Why do we admire busy people?

Most American adults who are employed are busy; there is nothing special and nothing that should be admired about being busy.

I like to go back over my day and look to see what it was that I actually accomplished, that has or will lead to revenue.

I could stay busy 16 hours a day without ever working in my business or earning a dime, yet at the same time it would feel like "work." I don't work so that I can stay busy; I work so I can pay the bills.
