On being busy

Owen here! Today I’d like to talk to you about being busy – something I’ve been experiencing a lot lately!

The only way to do all the things you need/want to when you’ve got too much on your list is to expand time and space.

I mean, there are tips you can use, and there are promises that you can do all the things if you just arrange it all the right way. If those work for you, congratulations! But here in my world, there’s no way to get it all done – it’s simpler just to assume that from the get go.

So if there’s no hope of getting it all done, what to do?

Imagine a stick. On one side is “ALL THE THINGS DO THEM.” What’s on the other side?

Clarity.

Time is a precious resource. Everything we choose to do with it must be the best, most important use of that resource. This limit lets us look at our to do list and identify what is the most important thing to do right now. Following this, you can rest assured that you aren’t failing to get things done. You’re doing exactly what you need to do at any moment. A much better feeling – and one you would have a harder time finding if you didn’t have a time crunch in the first place!

 

Note: This doesn’t mean that you can’t spend an hour playing games, or hanging out in bed when you just can’t even anymore. Sometimes the most important thing you can do is to rest.
