Topic #180: Are you too lazy or too busy?

Bonus: Why is it so hard to find a balance? Do you know anyone who has a better balance than you do? What do you think their secret is?

I’ve always been a busy person.  Ever since I can remember I’ve been a multi-tasker.  I’ve never been able to "just watch TV," I have always had something else going on. I’m either reading, on my laptop or texting but I will be doing two or more things at once and cognizant of them all. For instance as I am typing this blog post I am listening to my ipod and sending text messages to co-workers about the next 30 days production markers.

Lately, I’ve come to the realization that I have either become lazy, or so busy that I might as well be. Lazy and busy would seem to be mutually exclusive.  How can a lazy person be busy, or a busy person be lazy? Well, I think I’ve figured out how to do it. 

You just keep yourself busy with unimportant things and get lazy about the more important things.  For instance, spending too much time on the web means you’re busy, but it also means you can be lazy about cleaning your house.  See what I mean?  Being "busy" is a great way to avoid doing things you don’t want to do.

I think you’re beginning to get the picture.
