Lights on, coffee started, computer up.
Email open, staff arrives, meetings begin.
More email responses, fire to put out, already lunchtime, huh?
Text from home, do you have a minute, what broke again?
Yes – my appointment arrived, that took longer than I thought, voicemails
Where’d everyone go?
Is it 6 already?
What did I get done today?
Don’t fall prey to the curse of busyness. Busy is good. Busy is just. But
busy can also be a 20th century-rooted “hard days work”. Because you, and only you, have control over your days. And I’ve met far too many professionals who are think busyness is the only way. It’s not.
In your heart of hearts I think you know that.
