Are you busy?

21 12 2009

“Are you busy?” This is the standard work question I hear people asking one another. Or, to reverse it, the standard work answer to the question “How’s it going?” is “Busy”.

But it’s not enough to be busy. So are ants, bees, and snails. The important questions are: What are you busy about? Who are you busy being?

Great question – I hate “busy”. To me it says “I’m too lazy to organise myself, so I’ll just to react to stuff”.

Busy screams of Covey’s “Quadrant 1” activity.

I’d love to come up with what BUSY stands for… my ‘work in progress’ is:

Being
Unable
to
Schedule
Yourself
