It’s very trendy these days to be busy.
People in the modern workplace wear busyness as a badge of honor. In any elevator in any office building in the country, you can hear people talking about how full their plates are, about working nights and weekends, about being “swamped” or “under water,” about working 60-plus-hour weeks.
But think about busyness from a rational perspective.
Does being busy mean the same thing as working hard?
Does busyness automatically translate to effectiveness?
Does busyness ensure your goals will be achieved or your dreams will be realized?
The perspective we have on our lives can make a huge difference. Some fixate on the inevitable headaches and hassles that come up, the problems they must fix, and the challenges they have to face. They define their lives through the negatives, which takes away their attention on the positives.
A shift in perspective can make a dreary, sad life filled with worry into a wonderful, exciting life filled with happiness.
