Busy! Busy! Busy!

I’ve been meeting with clients and friends who are all ramping up their activity level prior to the holidays, and already feeling overwhelmed. Almost everyone I know, including myself, complains (and boasts) about being SO busy under ordinary ever day circumstances, so it gets hugely amplified at this time of year. I could go into psychological insights about why we’re so chronically over scheduled, but I thought these quotes I found might resonate better with everyone out there who fills every minute with busyness, then feels depleted. (I’ll sign off while you’re reading – gotta go do more stuff!)

Sleep tight,
Susan Lager

Busyness Quotes

The time to relax is — when you don’t have time for it.
– Sydney J. Harris


It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?
– Henry David Thoreau


My candle burns at both its ends; It will not last the night; But oh, my foes, and oh, my friends — It gives a lovely light.
– Edna St. Vincent Millay


The world is moving so fast these days that the one who says it can’t be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
-Harry Emerson Fosdick


The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else- we are the busiest people in the world.
– Eric Hoffer


At work, you think of the children you have left at home. At home, you think of the work you’ve left unfinished. Such a struggle is unleashed within yourself. Your heart is rent.
– Golda Meir


He who is too busy doing good finds no time to be good.
Robindranith Tagore


When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another – and ourselves.
Jack Kornfield
