Is busy a marker of importance?

I used to be busy. All the time.

I used to think that busy meant important.

I couldn’t bear to look at the signs – telling me that I had taken the wrong turn and that I was too busy.

There was only one option to me, and that was that I had to be important so I could be busier. I had to have more clients.

But busy isn’t a marker of importance.

Busy is a marker of stress. It’s a marker of thinking too much about things that doesn’t matter that much when everything comes together. The only thing important? The only things that matter when everything comes together is you, your health and your family.
