If we consider all the things we have going on in our lives, there is something we have in common — we are all extremely busy. In fact, we are busier now than ever before.
Why is that the case? Shouldn’t technology we have available today allow us to win the busyness battle?
I refer to it as a battle because that’s what we are constantly doing — battling to try and fit more and more into our already busy and hectic lives.
The truth is this way of operating is not sustainable over the long term. There will be consequences, which may include:
- Our health being affected in a negative way.
- Feeling rundown, stressed and overwhelmed.
- Taking on way more than we can handle and not being able to keep our commitments or meet our deadlines.
- Financial loss especially if we are late with product delivery and provide poor customer service.
