3 Time Management Tips to Help You Manage Busy-ness
The question above was recently posed in a LinkedIn post by sales & business growth specialist, Ben Kench. Subsequently, I’ve had conversations and read countless articles and social media content about the culture of busy-ness, busy not being a badge of honour and have even discovered a busy boycott challenge.
“If you want to be productive, if you want to achieve worthwhile goals while feeling a sense of fulfillment, it’s time to get focused. You need to start being self-aware enough to reject busy, meaningless activities and, instead, to focus on the one or two things that really matter to you each day”. Isaiah Hankel
Busy-ness isn’t specifically positive or negative, but how your level of activity makes you feel can be. If keeping up with work and family life leaves you feeling tired but fulfilled that’s very different to the feeling of being run ragged or on the verge of burnout.
With so many distractions, interruptions and commitments to deal with on a daily basis it’s easy to feel as though you are constantly busy even when you’re not getting much done, subsequently leaving a nagging feeling of not completing anything and having difficulty switching off.
Here are a few simple tips to help reduce the overwhelm, so that your brain doesn’t feel so busy even if you are constantly on the go!
