Epictetus says that unless we know what someone is working towards, or why they’re doing it (and they’re virtuous reasons), the classification of “industriousness” can’t truly be used (Discourses, 4.4.41; 43).
Just being “busy” doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re doing good, or that you’re producing meaningful results. It just means you’re busy.
Could be that we’re just looking like we’re doing something…
… which amounts to nothing.
