A ‘ghost word’ is a word recorded in a dictionary or other reference work, which is not actually used.
One of the biggest challenges I am facing today is the inability to judge whether an activity iam performing is a valuable one or a junk one, hence unable to even prioritize. For example, I dont really know the benefit to me, of updating this blog regularly. Is it just a ‘nice to do activity’, which I just enjoy. May be yes. Very often I get surprised when people get back to me after reading some posts in this blog, and sometimes it ends up in business transactions which are mutually beneficial. That way, the time spent on this blog is valuable as well. So the dilema is in the inability to classify an activity as a useful / useless activity…becuase some of the ‘useless activities’ brings in tangible benefits in the longer run.
