“I’m so busy” she said. “I just can’t find the time to even think” he mentioned. “Yea, this week has been CRAZY” she complained. “I’m just so busy; I don’t think I’ll have time to meet” he noted.
It’s like a freaking badge. The badge of busyness.
How often do you hear someone say “ya know, I’m just not that busy this week, so I’m taking time to relax, think through the strategy of next month, and giving my brain the space it needs to do it’s best work”. Ok, I guess no one talks that at all, but really. Do you ever I mean EVER hear anyone mention they are not busy?
I think most of us have a fear of even mentioning if we are not super busy.
It’s kinda sick frankly.
How are we supposed to do our best work, our best thinking, if we don’t give our brains any room in the margins. Our minds need the space and freedom to wander, wonder, and develop ideas.
I challenge you this year, take some simple road trips, or a hike in the woods with no cell phone, or just sit and let your mind wander. Let your brain do it’s thing, and see what comes of it. You will not regret it.

Life’s busy, take time to explore.
Make sure your making memories no just money or career. Memories are the only thing that you get to keep.
