No one really wants to read another post about how terribly busy I am. Join the club, right? Everyone is busy.
What are we all so busy doing? Really. What am I so busy with? Work. (Only 75 essays left to grade in a week's time.) Family life. (Church activities, school activities, moving into a different summer cabin.) Spring cleaning. (Yeah, filled a dumpster from the attic). Buying another funeral home. (Renovations and yard work to come there.)
But, really, am I that busy or do I just BELIEVE I am?
Let's look at the data.
1. I've noticed my thinking and, therefore, my writing has become quite clipped. I think in small chunks. My writing is full of fragments and phrases that I pass off for sentences. Usually I think in complex sentences. My thoughts are littered with semicolons. Not lately.
2. Rarely do I pass up an opportunity to dive into a philosophical discussion. The other day, a few colleagues were debating whether or not believing something makes it true. I didn't say a word. Not a word. ????? I didn't have any urge to add to the conversation. That has never happened to me before.
3. I have no guilt about my lack of training over the past several weeks. I know that I will be better for training in a few weeks when my semester is over and I can focus on setting some goals for myself. Right now, I have no training goals or physique goals past "Don't gain weight." I'm confident in my ability to set and meet goals following Gym Movement protocols. I have proven to myself that I can.
4. I've been sleeping very soundly and waking before my alarm. Now there's a phenomenon I haven't experienced since summer.
So what's the verdict? Am I busy? Am I too busy?
It doesn't matter what I THINK. It only matters what I DO.
