Take a look at my calendar and you’ll see a busy guy.  You might be impressed at how I’ve left not white space in my Google calendar.  Everything is in there – eating schedule, workout schedule, meditation time, reading time, private events and business meetings.

But what’s it all for?

To make money?  To be a better human?  To squeeze everything I can out of life before my time is up?  Maybe all of the above?

Anyone can seem busy.  Anyone can give themselves something to do just to feel like they are working.  But if we’re honest with each other, the day ends and sometimes we still feel empty, unfulfilled, and think back and say ‘what the heck did I do today’?  We literally can’t tell our spouses anything because we have no clue.

Psalm 39:6 says

“Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be.

If a business has no purpose, the organization will be like zombies walking around just trying to collect their next paycheck.  Money is really the only purpose.

If we entrepreneurs fill our schedules up with the purpose of making money, then we’re the same.

Being a busy entrepreneur isn’t wrong, but busyness requires intention and purpose.

This is a big reason why I had to make God my CEO, hold my calendar accountable to his purpose for my and my business, and fill it up according to moving forward on the visions he has given me.
