Remember when you used to ask someone how they were and they said, “fine”. Now you’re more likely to hear “busy” as an answer. Perhaps it’s time to look at what we are “busy” doing. Is what you are doing actually meaningful or are you just crossing off those mundane tasks that really aren’t that important? In many cases, people stay busy as a distraction from doing the important work in their lives.
It seems like “busy” has become a competitive thing – as if the busier you are the more you matter. We all have tasks to accomplish every day. Groceries don’t buy themselves after all. But is there something else you can be doing every day that will get you closer to your dreams?
