I’m Too Busy

Being past president in one of my professional organizations, I’m responsible for the nomination process for next year’s officers. This is proving to be a very frustrating experience.

I’ve been very active in this organization since joining – all while building a business, acclimating to a new part of the country, and building a network. I would say that I’ve been busy. And now that the business is successful, I stay pretty busy.

So when person after person tells us how ‘busy’ they are – ‘too busy’ to be involved – I’ve realized that I take it personally. It is disrespectful.

I realize that everything is not for everyone. If I don’t believe something is right for me, then I will tell you that. I’m not trying to preserve feelings, I’m trying to be honest. In order for me to commit to something, I have to see it as a priority or at least an action that serves a priority.

Am I busy? You bet. Am I too busy for what you are asking? Never … but I may or may not see it as a priority for me.

As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
