Busy People Get More Things Done

Are you always busy? A new study says if you are, it’s a good thing, as people with packed schedules tend to get more things done. Study leader, Professor Keith Wilcox with Columbia University, explains the data shows busier people are more likely to complete tastes more quickly, packing more things into a day. He adds, “We demonstrate that missing a task deadline results in negative emotions that lead people to procrastinate, but that being busy mitigates these negative emotions… being busy is one way to reduce the sense of failure.” He suggests breaking large tasks down into smaller ones in order to remain busy.
