Things are soooooo busy at the moment, I hardly have time to think, there is just so much going on, I feel like I am juggling a million things. Congratulations you just earned your Busyness Badge. It’s the award we like to wear when we are asked ‘So how are things?’ A quick roll of the eyes and we launch into the chaos of our lives.
How would we feel if the answer was ‘I sat and read a book for a couple of hours, played with the kids, spoke to my key Clients, did a couple of hours of work’, a more calm and relaxed reply. Chances are the other person would answer ‘Oh how I would love to just do that, but I am soooo busy at the moment’.
In these days of immediacy and fast-pace we almost feel apologetic if we aren’t rushing around headless. The thing is, are you chasing the right thing? Are you busy doing the stuff that will bring in the right Clients and focusing on them? Have a quick think about yesterday, and see if it was spent in the most productive way, or just chasing things.
Take a moment to STOP and look at the day ahead of you. What needs to be focused on, and what can be ditched? Look at how you could plan things better, and give your full focus to the important without all the other distractions.
Busyness is not a badge of honour – lose it.
