Episode 056: Stay productive, not busy


Busy is the new fine.

How many times do you answer "BUSY!" when someone asks how you are. Not, "Wonderful. Lovely. Super excited for this life. Peaceful. Calm. Wishing I had a taco right now." No, instead, it's "Really busy."

Mel Robbins said it best when she truthfully bombed us with, "Business is the ultimate form of laziness. Staying busy is our way of avoiding the things we really need to do."

I've committed my life to being full and productive, not busy. I want to fill my minutes with efficiency, not bleed them dry until my entire family is fall-down exhausted.
