How Busy Is TooBusy

26 Apr 2017

I have been “BUSY”! I have been the busy where you lose track of the day of the week, or you forget-did I eat today? I forgot because I went from task to task never taking notice of the time or my belly grumbling. Now I don’t miss many meals, it’s not healthy. One thing I notice is when  I get that busy there are always principles which seem to surface. They are reminders much like I recently wrote about like the dash. The dash represents the mark in-between  your date of birth and your expiration date. Or the saying, “you can make more money, but you can’t make more time”. True reminders if you think about them.

When I get THAT busy I lose track of some of the really important things life has to offer, this is your reminder. It is your look in the mirror time. Are you spending your time on the right things? You know the important things like your health, friends, family more importantly your aging parents.

I am a text book over achiever, I push and drive way past normal but I also understand there needs to be balance. I am not done achieving or pushing and moving forward each day and I will continue to challenge you.

Just remember the reminders I share with you. Just like 10 seconds a day can lead to professional success, it can help you create strong relationships. After all, is that not what we are working for?

Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today.
