So, how’s it going? How are you?
I’m so busy! I’ve been so busy, it’s just insane.
And so starts the beginning of just about every conversation in today’s modern age. And … it’s so f-ing boring, sometimes I can’t even stand it.
Why are we sooo busy? Are we actually doing more … or are we overscheduled and overworked with the wrong things, ensuring we don’t have any time to get anything important done?
I’m going to go out on a limb and say most of this being busy is more about doing the wrong things than prioritizing what’s most important. And frankly, that’s sad.
When was the last time you said “No” to someone? Why is saying “No” so hard?
The big problem with refusing to say “No” to things you don’t have time for, or don’t want to do, is that they take a huge toll on the remaining time you have for the things you need … and like to do. The lesson here is the more you say “No,” the more you can say “Yes.”
