Humans are busy species…

👨‍👩‍👦 Humans are busy species. I have a two-year-old son, so I’m seeing it first-hand that’s an innate part of who we are.

Today I slowed down for a second to realize how fast life’s going. Watching him run around so carefree and happy puts a smile on my face.

I think as adults, we grow jaded at certain things, and most even feel they have to speed up their “busy-ness” to show to themselves, possibly others, just how busy they are. To them, it may feel like an accomplishment.

Most times, it’s deceit. You are not deceiving others. You’re deceiving yourself.

Tricking the mind into equating hard work and time spent.

Do you know how I know? I was like this. And you know what it did? Made me shelter away from people.

I preached networking to clients as I hid away from the phone. I preferred email. I was “busy.”

All that changed since COVID. I started setting up more calls, reaching out to more people, joining in more chats.

And you know what? It made a world of a difference in not only my outlook in life but also to my internal clock. To that thing that makes us feel like we can’t relax because we gotta get something done.

You need to change this habit. I did. If I did, I know you can too!

Weigh smart work against the clock. Take time for yourself. Take time for others. You may just finally be able to relax, enjoy what’s truly important in life.

Relationships. Love. ❤️

Be well, friends, and stay safe!

    Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a good portion of people will miss your wonderful writing due to this problem.

    A lot of thanks for all of your effort on this blog. My niece enjoys conducting investigation and it’s easy to see why. A lot of people learn all relating to the powerful way you deliver rewarding information through the blog and in addition improve participation from other individuals on that subject matter while my simple princess is now studying a great deal. Enjoy the remaining portion of the year. You’re doing a glorious job.

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    I have to show my appreciation for your kind-heartedness supporting people that really want assistance with this issue. Your very own dedication to getting the message around came to be astonishingly advantageous and have really helped some individuals like me to realize their endeavors. Your amazing warm and friendly guidelines can mean much to me and even further to my colleagues. Best wishes; from all of us.
