Are We Too Busy Being Too Busy?

“Focus on being productive instead of being busy.” -Anonymous

The grind is real, or so they say. Oh, honey, don’t you know I have to frequently put myself in check when I am reminded of the above quote? Sometimes, I am supercharged and hyperactive when I am trying to fulfill my so-called time management schedule with my daily tasks. So when I question the quality of my busyness, the answer must meet the criteria of quality accomplishments beyond a reasonable doubt, or else I find myself depleted of energy, stressed out, and starting over again. I must be committed and make sure I am not entangled by my choices of mass societal influences with a flight crew of stress.Β 

Are we burning out so fast with overzealousness that we are creating a bomb of burnout? Are we swelling into a busyness trap from the vapors of energy? I know I don’t need to give you a step-by-step method or list about how to reduce our overwhelm resulting from busyness. We reflect on how we have been trained and conditioned to stay busy, thinking this would lead to productivity but does it? Do we gain any traction of productivity in response to our weaponry of busyness? Are we truly being efficient or merely becoming a representation of the concept of being busy just to stay busy? Well, if you are feeling worn out and tired, recheck your schedule and “busyness list” of things to do. Can you delegate some of the items on your busyness list to someone else? Or is there a need to delete or rearrange some items on that list to give you breathing room to make some quality accomplishments? Check yourself before you wreck yourself! (as rapper Ice Cube would say)

  7. My dear Brian, probably all of the above. 😫 I also think that people are trying to achieve something a little more difficult and aggressive than they expected and the let down makes them disappointed. I have seen how so many people set some lofty goals that are too difficult to achieve, even if they remained busy 24/7.

    Yet whatever the reasons, people are stressed out from over-exertion and over extending themselves…but that is just my two-cents! 😜
