If you ask high performers, how’s it going? Mostly likely they will say, I’m BUSY. If this is your response, ask yourself, being BUSY doing what?
Being BUSY is a weak response. Being BUSY says we can’t prioritize our life. Being BUSY implies we may be in overdrive and not making time for what we value.
If we articulate what BUSY is and substitute the word BUSY for how we are spending our time, maybe it would bring more clarity.
Let us make sure when we say we are BUSY we aren’t filling up our time with a bunch of nonsense today.
