Losing myself in busyness is much too easy. Over the years, I've developed expertise in productivity and maximising work. I get so very much done, do meant todos checked off, but then feel like I've done nothing at all. This brings about a sense of emptiness. Losing sight of my "why" is the root. When my tasks are simply the responses to stimulus, not connected to adding value, I fall into this funk. For there's no value. Remembering why we want, what the things are that we value counters that. Hence, why that planning and thinking time is so critical. Sadly, it's so easy to get caught up in the cult of busy and devalue planning. And we end up miserable and morose. So, more planning and thoughtfulness in my life. There!
