On Sunday I heard this: "If you're too busy to do that, then your busy is wrong". Your BUSY is WRONG. This has been in my head for days now and ties together a few things that have bugged me lately. I don't know about you but I've noticed the default answer to the question… Continue reading THE BUSY IS WRONG
