Busy, according to Dictionary.com, is an adjective meaning:
actively and attentively engaged in work or a pastime
As a verb, the meaning is:
to keep occupied
What I notice about this word, is how often people use it as an excuse for not getting something finished. “I was just too busy.”
What I find interesting is that we all have the same 24 hours in a day and there are those among us that have accomplished big goals. People like: Mother Teresa, Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Nelson Mandela, and Thomas Edison, to name a few. If you study their lives, you could certainly say they are (were) busy. They were actively engaged in pursuing their passion and making a difference in the world.
My challenge to you this week is to evaluate how you use the word, busy. Are you just too busy focusing on tasks that don’t make a lot of difference? Are you too busy to enjoy life? What are you busy doing and does it help you achieve what you want to achieve?
