Have you figured out the second head fake?

It’s always a bit of a hurry and scurry isn’t it? Life. I’m soooo busy. I have no time. How are you doing today?…. Busy. We brag about the long hours we worked, the midnight oil we burnt. We talk on our cellphones whilst doing almost everything. The thing is- we want to look busy and reflect our busyness to others at every opportunity. Why?

Is it not perhaps time to relook at our busyness and think again about what it really says? Could your busyness not be a sign of taking on too much?... overwhelming yourself to please others??? that you have no method in place of effectively dealing with it all. Is your busyness not perhaps a sign of weakness? Or is the scurrying helping you to achieve your dreams and goals faster?

Scurrying around headless does not necessarily mean you’re accomplishing things… in fact – the more I think of it- quite the opposite is true.

In Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture, and as a parting gift to the world before his own departure I think, this truly inspirational being attempts to point the way for us . “This lecture is not about how to achieve your dreams, it’s about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself, the dreams will come to you.”

Is your busyness not perhaps a sign that your life is not yours anymore? So, have you figured out your second head fake?

Instead of the hurry and scurry chasing those dreams… maybe its time we truly give thought to the journey.
