I’m SO Busy!

22 03 2017

Quick question:

Who is not busy?

Quick question??? More like trick question. We are ALL busy. 

There are not enough hours in the day. 

Stress level is running at red-line every waking moment.

And don’t even get us started on how little time we actually sleep . . .

Yes, we are all incredibly busy; that is not the question.

The real question is:

What are we doing that is keeping us “busy?”

There’s no denying that there are lots of people who genuinely are busy doing things that must be done to keep roof overhead, food in bellies, and clothes on kids.  I’m not talking about those folks, though.  I’m talking about those of us who actually have choices as to how we spend some of our time.

While we have the ability to choose, how many of us actually consider our choices as we zip through our days, racing from one thing to another without so much as a whiff of “Do I really need to be doing this?” much less “Do I really want to be doing this?”  

Being busy is a good thing, though, right?  We fear being idle; it’s unseemly.  Well, the opposite of idle is not busy; it’s engaged. 

Stop being busy. 

Stop long enough to think about how you spend your precious resource – your time.

Spend your time doing things that raise your quality of life, not your blood pressure.
