Here’s what I’m learning about busyness; when I’m too busy for certain important things in my life, then I know it’s time for some additional tool of prioritization, organization, and/or collaboration.
It’s the illusion of being ‘too busy’ to do something truly important to me that makes me shake my head vigorously until I’m once again conscious to reality – the reality that it is my life!
And it’s what is important to me, when it gets my time and attention, that makes me better. Spending time on what’s important to me makes me better for those I serve. Yes, even fly fishing.
These entries were written after a morning of fly fishing. That little voice told me that it was a good time for a brief fishing trip … and it was right. Four of the seven trout I landed were the largest I’ve ever caught.
So if you’re going to feel guilty, just be sure it’s the guilt associated with the time you ought to be giving yourself.
