3 Ways to Manage a Busyness Addiction

Busyness has become equated with success and importance. In other words, how busy you are has become a mark of your value. A full schedule means you must have a lot of important things going on and a successful career, right? 

Maybe not. Maybe you're just busy for the sake of being busy (to please your boss, to impress your colleagues, to fit in with your friends). 

For most of us, the latter is true. 

Breaking the addiction of busyness is as difficult as any. It starts with the desire to quit. After that, it takes awareness, conscious decision making on your part and a willingness to leave space open for new opportunities and for what really matters to you.
