Being really busy means you are important and that you are getting a lot of things done – right? Not really. Not necessarily. Being busy just means you are busy. So what if you could actually accomplish more by doing less?

Christine Carter says that is not only possible, it is necessary. Christine is author of the book The Sweet Spot: How to Find Your Groove at Home and Work and says when you are busy, busy, busy, you are less effective.

Listen to my interview with Christine and you’ll discover:
