Being busy is a state of mind. The times I am most busy is when I absolutely have nothing to do. I have so much nothing to do that I am too busy to do anything else. I am incapacitated by how little I have to do. It’s at these moments I am useless; baggage, weighing down the world. I have so much time to be productive, but I’m too busy to be productive. It’s so easy to be busy.
The difficult part about being busy is finding balance. If you have absolutely nothing to do, and all of the time in the world, you are bound to suffocate. If you have too much you have to do, you will also suffocate. Somewhere right in the middle you can thrive.
Don’t make excuses about not having time. If anything it’s a lack of dedication; a lack of effort. Or a lack of balance.
