Busy

Busy.

I am so busy.

Why do we glorify “Busy”?

We wear our busyness as a badge of honor.

But are you reeaalllyyy busy? C’mon…..tell the truth.

Being on you phone, trolling social, watching TV, listening to a podcast is not busy.

Those are distractions. 

Why do you want to be busy?

Is it possible you are just being busy to distract yourself?

Distracting yourself from your own negative self talk.

Many of us stay busy because we don’t like the idea of being alone with ourselves, with our own (painful) thoughts.

The truth about busyness is that it does not drive any action.

Yeah, you might get a few things off your to-do list, but you likely aren’t doing that ONE things you know you need to do.

If you really think you are a special snowflake and are over scheduled, I challenge you to do a time journal for three days. This is where you write down what you are doing every 30min from the time you get up until the time you go to bed.

I call this a reality check. I did this. Turns out, I was super busy…doing stupid shit all day. 

I made some radical changes. 

Goodbye NCIS, Foodnetwork, Bravo, HGTV. I will miss our time together, but I need to GSD.

I started saying no to everyone and everything that did not align with my goals. 

“I’d love to volunteer, but I can’t, I’m sorry”.

Another thing I changed was dropping the word “Busy” from my vocab. 

I’ll catch myself every now and again, and I notice how terrible it feels when I say it.

Then you’ll notice how everyone around you says how busy they are.

I challenge you to tell yourself the truth about what you are really “busy” doing…then drop the word busy all together.
