Is Busyness Taking Control of Your Day? Part 1

It’s not the kind of cars you drive anymore, it’s how busy you are, how many activities you are in, and the bumperstickers on your car – that shows status.”
– Becky De Greeff

Society has become a culture of busyness, where the appearance of being busy has become not just a way of life, but also glamourous. It is now seen as a sign of high social status.

Busyness has become a badge of honour, whom ever is the busiest is the queen of the neighbourhood.

Has busyness really become a way of life?

Professional women are being bogged down with busyness believing that to be the best they need to fill their schedules with as many tasks as possible. And if they are not busy they are seen to be lazy.
