ARTICLE OF THE MONTH: Tracy Knofla's Thriving Tip "The Business of Busy-ness"
"I'm so busy!"
"Well, if you think YOU are busy, you should see MY schedule!"
This conversation occurs with alarming frequency. Everyone tells me they're too busy to do the things they want to do. It makes no difference if we're talking about work life or personal life. Too many people are in the business of busy-ness!
I think busy-ness has become a great excuse. Don't want to work out? Just tell people you're too busy. Too tired to meet friends after work? Tell them you're too busy. Not able to think of a new idea at work, tell 'em you're too busy. We've conveniently created the perfect excuse to justify nearly everything, because people always believe you. They will give you a knowing nod and say, "I feel ya!" when you say those three words.
I want to start a revolution!
