BEING BUSY: IT’S THE WRONG APPROACH

TGIM!

Busy busy busy.  Stop.  Stop. Stop.  Seriously.  Take a deep breath and just stop it.  If you think you are too busy to take even 90 seconds to read this…  Stop.  Pause.  Seriously?  You don’t have 90 seconds?

May and Spring… the busiest of our busy season.  SO BUSY RIGHT NOW WE CAN’T BREATHE.  HOLY CRAP AM I BUSY.  I have heard these lines or worse for the 20 years that I worked in this industry every Srping.  Some handle it well, as for others… not so much.  I’m telling you, the choice is yours.  I’ve seen it.  I’ve lived it.

Give your actions meaning

It’s the approach they take each day.  Every day.

Make sure everything you do is defined and can bring measurable success. Don’t settle for less and assume you’re making progress just because you’re moving around. Give your life meaning with action and don’t fake it because you still need to remember how to be yourself. Don’t look busy, be busy.

No one will ever give you an award for being the busiest.

Not your family.  Not your co-workers.  Not your customers.

But they will always remember the person most organized, the most efficient, and the person always having the time to listen to their needs.
Work towards those goals, not how to be more busy.
You can’t love, serve, or care if you are too busy.
When you add a task, remember then you have to give one up.  You just can’t keep adding things.  Are their things you do every day that are non-essential?  Try not doing them for a week and see if it even mattered.    I bet you will find things you do…that really don’t need to be done.
