Sharing some quick ‘wisdom’ from a recent lesson I learned on what busy really means.
I know I fell right into the trap when a friend asked how I was doing a couple of weeks ago. I was training for another marathon and starting a new business, so my automatic answer was ‘Good. Busy, but good.’ This led to a fantastic conversation about how lame of a response that was. I loved the deep conversation that followed. We discussed how many people think busy = productive = valuable = good. His words, “it sends a message of confidence when you don’t complain about how busy you are everyday”, have challenged me to remove “too busy” from my vocabulary.
