Avoid Looking Busy While Doing Nothing
Many of us have mastered the technique of looking busy while doing very little. In some cases, we stare at our computer screen reading one email after the next. We make it a habit to skip those requiring an action item, hoping that the initiator will forget it was sent to us.

This is our comfort zone, and it is easier to live in this mediocre world.
