Things You Understand If You’re The Busy Friend

We hear ya.

Are you chronically busy? Do you go to school and hold a job (or several)? Are you overly involved on campus? Do you have a semblance of a social life? Are you constantly having to prioritize and re-prioritize your to-do list? Do you have a tendency to overextend yourself? Do you sometimes feel like your friends just don’t understand? Are you The Busy Friend?

We hear ya. The following is a list of some of the things that your fellow Busy Friends can identify with. If you’re not The Busy Friend, hopefully this list gives you some insights into the mind of The Busy Friend in your life.

1. Scheduling everything. I mean, everything. You forget to schedule cushion time for a bathroom break? Bummer. Your whole day is thrown off.

2. You have been so deprived of purely social interactions that when you finally do make it to that hang-out you scheduled two weeks ago and your friends are busy playing “Candy Crush” instead of being super present in this awesome, once-in-a-month quality friendship moment, you get unreasonably angry.

3. Or the opposite. You finally have a moment to chill with friends, but it is only going to last so long and you’re the one too busy for the present. Remember how you haven’t called your grandma in three years? The to-do list you made seven minutes ago needs updating. You have not casually scrolled your Instagram/Facebook etc. allllll day. If you’ve been there, you know what I mean.

4. When you explain how busy you are, and people tell you to “just do less”, and you’re like “I CANNOT JUST DO LESS. THIS IS MY LIFE. I DO THIS MUCH. THIS IS HOW MUCH I DO” and they still don’t get it. I mean, sure, you could maybe cut out your one hobby that allows you to be a sane and functioning human. And yeah, you could probably eat more top ramen and less actual food, saving on the amount of hours spent working and the amount of prep time. Sure, you could spend less time sleeping – who needs a solid 4 hours anyways?

5. When you have a sudden opening in your schedule and become the most spontaneous person. You’ve got 27 free minutes and you’re up for anything. Where da crew?

6 .You calculate the exact amount of minutes you will be able to sleep if you fall asleep now. How many REM cycles is that? 1.5? Awesome. If anyone interrupts your precious sleep, they might as well have woken a hibernating bear.

7 .When Friday rolls around you can do nothing but fall into bed in exhaustion. Cue comments from friends about how you’re totes antisocial and why don’t you ever go out anymore.

If you can identify with more than a few of these, you may just be The Busy Friend. Maybe it’s time to cut back on a few of your extracurriculars; maybe it’s time to start slimming down your friend group to the people who really matter to you. Trust me, I know the struggle of having to limit your activities and prioritize your passions. But even just making a small change can have a big impact on your schedule, energy level and social life.

TRANSFORMING PERFORMANCE

I m Too Busy!

Have you found yourself saying ‘I’m Too Busy’ recently. I mean it happens to everyone right? There genuinely are times where you have too much to do and find yourself suddenly realising it is 4.30pm and you haven’t stopped for lunch, or it’s 9pm and you can’t finish for another few hours yet.

However, I do believe that often ‘too busy’ is a myth we create in our own minds. It is all about priorities, and taking a longer term approach. For example, I was speaking to someone last week who was ‘too busy’ and an hour later they popped up on Facebook for 20 minutes taking about something and nothing (non business related). The same person later in the day was tweeting about Pokémon Go hunting.

If you have time for Pokémon then great (and actually it is a genius idea for getting kids off their Xboxes and doing some exercise – going round the streets on a Pokémon hunt). However, in some cases Pokémon has literally taken over people’s lives – there have been reports of people crashing their cars, breaking into houses and walking into rough seas, while chasing Pokémon.

You might think it is really stupid to let Pokémon take over your life in a way that threatens your health but maybe your business is YOUR Pokémon? Maybe your business is taking over your life. You might be looking at Pokémon and thinking – Why? Your husband/wife/partner/kids/family member or friends might be looking at you over-working in your business and think Why?

Are you in the position where you are not making your boat go faster despite all your hard work, where the only thing going faster is your life. Would you like to know how to get your business running as brilliantly as Nintendo (50% rise in share price in a week is not bad!).

What you will get

  • 30 minutes devoted to working ON and not IN your business
  • At least 2 ideas you can take away and implement immediately
  • A clear plan of what to do next to delete some ‘busyness’ and be more effective in your business

    A Rant About Asking People if They Are “Busy”

    A Rant About Asking People if They Are “Busy”

    I have a request that will help you and your fellow business owners….

    Stop asking people if they are busy to see how they are.

    We ask people this as if them responding with a “yes” is a good thing?

    I don t know anyone who truly wants to feel busy. “Busy” normally goes along with feeling over-worked, tired and stressed out, it usually means not being relaxed and surviving on adrenaline. I don’t know anyone that really enjoys those feelings on an ongoing basis (and I certainly don’t like it either).

    I do like to feel challenged though. I do like to feel that I m in demand. I do like to feel that I have a good flow of business to keep me profitable. I like to feel that I’ve got things under control and be relaxed about it (even when I’m working hard).

    To me, Busy is a dirty four letter word. We are trained from an early age that busy is a great definition of success Because if we re busy then we must be successful, right? It s not true though. Busy is NOT a sign of success. Busy might mean that we have a lot of clients or work on, but it’s very easy to be busy yet not be profitable. And it s easy to be busy and profitable and still not be happy!

    In my observation from coaching hundreds of business owners most are too busy. Their business runs them. So a better question might be How s business? or How s everything working out?” Let’s break the curse of ‘busy being a good thing in business.

    Things You Understand If You’re The Busy Friend

    We hear ya.

    Are you chronically busy? Do you go to school and hold a job (or several)? Are you overly involved on campus? Do you have a semblance of a social life? Are you constantly having to prioritize and re-prioritize your to-do list? Do you have a tendency to overextend yourself? Do you sometimes feel like your friends just don’t understand? Are you The Busy Friend?

    We hear ya. The following is a list of some of the things that your fellow Busy Friends can identify with. If you’re not The Busy Friend, hopefully this list gives you some insights into the mind of The Busy Friend in your life.

    1. Scheduling everything. I mean, everything. You forget to schedule cushion time for a bathroom break? Bummer. Your whole day is thrown off.

    2. You have been so deprived of purely social interactions that when you finally do make it to that hang-out you scheduled two weeks ago and your friends are busy playing “Candy Crush” instead of being super present in this awesome, once-in-a-month quality friendship moment, you get unreasonably angry.

    3. Or the opposite. You finally have a moment to chill with friends, but it is only going to last so long and you’re the one too busy for the present. Remember how you haven’t called your grandma in three years? The to-do list you made seven minutes ago needs updating. You have not casually scrolled your Instagram/Facebook etc. allllll day. If you’ve been there, you know what I mean.

    4. When you explain how busy you are, and people tell you to “just do less”, and you’re like “I CANNOT JUST DO LESS. THIS IS MY LIFE. I DO THIS MUCH. THIS IS HOW MUCH I DO” and they still don’t get it. I mean, sure, you could maybe cut out your one hobby that allows you to be a sane and functioning human. And yeah, you could probably eat more top ramen and less actual food, saving on the amount of hours spent working and the amount of prep time. Sure, you could spend less time sleeping – who needs a solid 4 hours anyways?

    5. When you have a sudden opening in your schedule and become the most spontaneous person. You’ve got 27 free minutes and you’re up for anything. Where da crew?

    6 .You calculate the exact amount of minutes you will be able to sleep if you fall asleep now. How many REM cycles is that? 1.5? Awesome. If anyone interrupts your precious sleep, they might as well have woken a hibernating bear.

    7 .When Friday rolls around you can do nothing but fall into bed in exhaustion. Cue comments from friends about how you’re totes antisocial and why don’t you ever go out anymore.

    If you can identify with more than a few of these, you may just be The Busy Friend. Maybe it’s time to cut back on a few of your extracurriculars; maybe it’s time to start slimming down your friend group to the people who really matter to you. Trust me, I know the struggle of having to limit your activities and prioritize your passions. But even just making a small change can have a big impact on your schedule, energy level and social life.
