I’ll never utter the words "I’m busy" again (probably!)
I’ve noticed quite a few blog posts recently about being too busy and if the state of being TOO BUSY is an addictive thing? Or even if it just simply isn’t true and a bit of a excuse. The fact that we think we are too busy when in fact we are just filling up our time telling ourselves we are busy and procrastinating about Facebook/Twitter etc! Obviously people (me included) are busy, thats a given but are we as busy as we think we are? The theme of not making enough time for yourself is linked massively to this and actually is a bit unhealthy. How can we expect to work efficiently if we are knackered with brains full of a million and 1 things?
This really struck me as very important as I seem to just be soooooo busy all the time (I find this phrase really annoying and I am annoying myself saying it right now) so I am going to make a little promise to myself that I will never utter the words “I’m just so busy” again. Yes, I may be busy but isn’t everyone else. Why do I think I am so special? So basically what I am trying to say to myself Is:
Just man the F up and get on and it!
Last year I hardly had any time to myself and this was a bit of a problem. I know that I need a bit of time to create and just to be so that is what I am going to try and give myself. Now back to the to-do list!
Some articles about this very subject written way better than I can put into words, that got me thinking:
