In his article Busyness Is the New Spirituality, Dave Kraft makes the case (from culture and from the example of Jesus) that most of us are far too busy. The tricky part is that we are usually busy with good things. But this can lead to "a deep, deep sense of exhaustion -- emotional, spiritual, and physical."
Does this sense of exhaustion characterize you? Here is what he offers as the solution:
- Learn to say no.
- Intentionally slow down.
- Think strategically when you make decisions.
- Simplify your life by de-cluttering your busy schedule.
