I’m going to start off by mentioning, those of you who know me, I am fully aware of the fact that when anyone asks me how I’ve been, my automated response usually is “oh I’ve been so busy.” It is true, I have been extremely busy and non stop for several months now. I always counteract the fact that I’ve been so busy by saying “well I don’t mind I like being on the go.”
Truthfully, I love being on the go, I love having something to do a lot of the time. However, we as humans need to stop using “busy” as a synonym for ‘doing well.’
Being busy doesn’t always necessarily mean that you’re efficient. In fact sometimes having so much to do can mean that you become inefficient.
When you’re constantly busy, although you’re getting things done, you’re also putting other things on the back burner.
When I have lots of stuff to do, my time management tends to go down the drain; I focus primarily on my latest tasks and prioritise the wrong things in the wrong order.
Being busy and successful is so incredibly important – working as hard as you possibly can will be beneficial in the long run, however it is vital to take time out for yourself.
If you find that you spend a lot of time complaining about how busy you are, take some time out for yourself and indulge in some self care. You’ll be much more focused and prepared to work hard if you simply prioritise your health and well being first.
