Busy does not equal important

The idea is not to become a busy bee. The idea is to just be #MondayMorningWakeUpCall

“Busy does not equal important” – Seth Godin

I often see people priding themselves with having to skip lunch because they were so busy solving world hunger problems. Flashing the number of missed calls because they tuned out ‘just’ for an hour for some peace of mind. Not being able to take out 2 minutes to breathe because lo behold, the spinning of the world depends on them.

But then “What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare” – W.H. Davies

Equally important I wonder, if this ‘busyness’ is a facade to appear important or an inability to plan and manage time or even worse, a desire to fulfill insatiable greed. The answers we will know only if we ask ourselves the questions.

And if we do try and answer in all honesty then I’m pretty sure we’ll be able to find 14mins a week to share some doughnuts 🙂
