You get to be choosy!
When you’re “TOO BUSY”, it’s much easier to say “No!” to “Got a minute?”s.
Suddenly the IMPORTANT things become more clear.
Focus shifts from “doing what’s on the list” towards the things we “get” to do because they matter (more).
You can unapologetically and confidently set appointments instead flying by the seat of your pants.
When you’re TOO BUSY and you know it, you must pause for a moment upon completion of every “thing to do” just for a minute or 2 to shift mindset to the next important thing.
You’ve gotta accept the reality that you probably won’t get it ALL done today, give yourself permission to “erase and replace”TODO’s” to defer them to a time in the future.
You become more attentive to the important distinction between “busywork” and Vital work.
You learn the power of “urgency” and apply it to things that matter most.
Done right, TOO BUSY turns us into a lean, mean, indefatigable force to be reckoned with – Superhuman powers.
or . . .
You could just fold and give up and have yourself a pity party.
