"The candle that burns twice as bright burns half as long.."
This is an old Chinese proverb.
Busyness, it seems, at least in the ‘developed’ world, is becoming a bit of an epidemic.
We even seem to wear it as a badge of honour – like busy somehow makes you more successful in life.
A quintessential over achiever, everyone just try and keep up!
But what are we busy doing exactly?
Are you over committing yourself to all the wrong things?
Are you not valuing time enough?
Have you lost or not developed the ability to prioritise?
The ability to focus in on what’s really important
Or is it fear?
Fear of missing out
Fear of falling behind
Fear of becoming irrelevant
Fear of not being valuable enough
