You know what's funny is now that I am back and working, I hear the word busy a lot. People are busy. Busy, busy, busy.
Maybe its just me, but I'm still not "busy". I have time to train and work out. I walk to work, I go to tennis classes, I spend a lot of time playing video games, making YouTube video and writing articles.
Yup, still have time to call my friends and family on the phone. Maybe busy is just relative.
Oh yeah a couple of tips:
1) If you're busy - don't answer the phone. Answering the phone and telling someone you're busy is stupid. The person wouldn't have called you if they knew you were busy. Don't make someone else feel bad because you answered the phone when you were "BUSY".
2) Take some time to yourself. Even busy people need to disconnect. If you're really busy, maybe you should stop using Instagram, or uninstall that game on your phone or tablet. Do something truly relaxing, like yoga, meditation - even 15 minutes will do wonders.
3) Don't be a flake. Being busy doesn't mean you cancel on people. If you're busy, your friends will understand. Just give people advance notice and re-schedule.
and ALWAYS be in the present.
If you're busy and you only have dinner to catch up with your BFF, turn off your damn phone. Talk story, listen to them, TRULY LISTEN. It's counter-intuitive since busy people want to purge and vent, but sometimes you'll just need to step back and let that other person know you're important to them...
BUSY - NOT AN EXCUSE.
