It has been called a cult.
For around 200 years, the power of this cult has been growing.
That cult is dedicated to one seductive idea – busyness.
This cult insists that a good life is one of constant activity and application, where every hour of the day must be filled with intense activity.
The cult is making us tired and stressed.
Worse, it is based on flawed thinking.
To be truly productive and reach our potential, we actually need breaks, time away, inactivity and normal time for the mind.
Albert Einstein hated “busyness” and was a big advocate of taking a walk or a swim when he encountered a problem – and he always came back with the solution.
Do you have time for this? If you are a fully signed up member of the “busyness cult”, no doubt you do not have time.
Feeling exhausted? Have a quiet, slow day and turn away from the drug of busyness. You might be amazed.
