Calling Time On “Being Busy”

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to hear Tom Raths speak at the Canadian Positive Psychology conference. He spoke about the importance of making “time and attention” in our lives and how it’s time to stop using “busy” as a status symbol. Instead, he encourages us to be present and focused on one person or task at a time. I couldn’t agree more...

In the “busy-ness” of life, are we missing out on life?

Posted: February 2017 Where are you running to? When I recently called my good friend Sandra to wish her a happy birthday, she said: “It seems like we are always running and, as I get older, I have started to ask myself what are we running towards or maybe running from?” These are such important questions — and the basis for what I want to write about today. In our western culture it seems that we place a high value on being ”busy.” Running around to accomplish our to-do lists has become the acceptable norm.
