Busyness. I struggle with being busy. This feels like a good thing most of the time, busy with work, with family. But sometimes I am busy with work when I should be resting with family. Sometimes I need to recharge myself so I can be a better father. Instead, I tend to fill every moment with the next task and sometimes my family doesn’t get the patience and support from me that they should.

“Your busyness doesn’t mean you’re being effective. Effectiveness is about the ‘what’, not the ‘how much’ “.

“Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day.”

No news is good news…?

Shameless plug, come to Anvil and satisfy your inner masochist.
