Feeling Busy All The Time? Then Read This...

Everybody is busy.

Just ask the next person you see “how are you?” and chances are they’ll say “Busy!”

Busyness has become a standard response.

To-do lists that go on for miles.

If you are a to-do list person, perhaps this rings true:

Each morning you look at your list for today, that you know you can’t get done, but you add more stuff to it anyway.

Which raises a good question:

“If time is money, are you broke or rich?”

Fancy cars, big houses, grand holidays are nice.

But if you are paying through the nose for your rent/mortgage, lost most of your meaningful friendships, worry about losing your job or get sick almost every time you go on holiday (to name a few of the symptoms of a busy 24x7 life); is it really the life you want to live?

Chances are no.

Yet according to research more than 95% of us do exactly that.

According to the US Social Security Administration; if you select a hundred people at the beginning of their working life and observe them for 40 years you’ll discover a disturbing pattern:

- Only one will have become wealthy

- four will be financially stable

- five will need to continue working

- 36 will have died

- 54 will rely on friends and family for financial support

Chances are most will have been “busy” for much of their working life.

The same pattern happens all over the world.

That’s why it’s so important to build in stopping points.

To ask questions like:

  • Is this the best I can do?

  • Is this the life I want to lead

  • What would be even better than this?

These kind of questions open the door to creating a life that isn’t just successful but fulfilling.

Life on your terms.

If your default answer to “How are you?” is “Busy”, then this video might be for you.
