Resolve to change your speech. Never say that you are busy again. Refuse to be a part of the Cult of Busy. Resolve to bring balance into your life. You will be more effective and have more time at your disposal.
If you proudly wear the ‘badge of busy’, throw it away. Of course there will be times of greater intensity when you have to work hard. But be proud of getting more and more effective – not only getting more things done but getting more of the right things done. Get those things done that really make a substantial difference in people’s lives … maybe those near to you.
