How Busy Are You?

Warning: this is not your typical January/start of a new year empowerment blog.

Ever wonder how much time you could really have to do what you love and have a great career and business?

Towards the end of 2017 I noticed a very marked difference in society. As things slowed down after about December 20, I slowed down naturally, too. I really noticed that the pace I had towards the end of December is the pace I want forever. I caught myself thinking to myself, “Oh well, I’ll have to wait until December 2018 for that pace again”. I sighed HEAVILY and became really sad and felt helpless.

Then a thought occurred to me. I could choose my perspective on my pace. What’s more, I can set my pace- regardless of the month of year. Waiting until next December feels so disempowering and well- a LONG time away.

I’ve been reading a book called, “Busy”. As a result, I’ve decided that I will no longer use the “B” word (busy) again. I am choosing a new perspective on my time and busy-ness.

What’s that look like? Well, I’m not choosing to have so many meetings in 2018. I haven’t ironed out all the details yet, but I do know it feels better.

For 2018, I’m not asking you to set a resolution or do anything differently. All I’m asking you for is to have “deliberate awareness” around who you are and how you are being in the world.

Without deliberate awareness, your brand can’t flourish. Without deliberate awareness, you can’t change and grow and transform.

So step back and take inventory:

  • how are you coming across for yourself and for others?
  • Do you want to be different? If so, why?
  • Where can you get rid of the notion of “busy” in your life and live more deliberately?
