Published: October 19, 2012

Being busy does not equate to delivering results. We are so caught up in the culture of busy we forget to reflect on why we're doing what we do and how it contributes to the results we seek.

Jennifer,

You always have something thought provoking to say. THe activity trap is one of the largest reasons why many printing companies can't see the forest for the trees. The inability to see through busywork that bloats headcounts and payroll is keeping many of the remaining survivors from achieving the viability that will insure they are here for the long haul. Without the cash reserves, reinventing oneself in this environment is impossible. Enough said or I'll be rewriting my article! :)
