The “busy” epidemic

In addition to today being Monday and over halfway through June, it’s also our 13th wedding anniversary.

One of Nate (my husband) and I’s favorite “date” activities is going for a drive. We don’t have a destination (although on our long drives we usually find ourselves on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago), we just drive (well, he drives) and are sometimes in silence and at other times talk.

Sometimes we have talk radio on at a low volume, turning it up when we hear something that sounds interesting.

Yesterday, one of the hosts mentioned that she had received several emails from people she didn’t personally know over the last 24 hours that all started with “I’m sure you’re really busy, but….”

She those emails made her realize that we have a “busy” epidemic. And how “busy” you are is a status thing, something to strive for.

And she thinks it’s a big problem.

I’m inclined to agree with her.

Let’s talk about that.

For this week’s Wednesday LIVE with Evie, let’s talk about Business and Busy-ness. Check out the Facebook event here for more information.
