Busyness with no purpose!

Often times people fall into the trap of, always having to be doing something. I totally agree with the quote which says, “A idle mind is the devils playground.” But, if you are simply making up stuff to do, you are not being productive. It’s okay to say no sometimes to invites to parties, events or etc., if it’s not going to help you move forward with your purpose. Time is a limited commodity, so I encourage you to make good use of it.

Having a calendar full of “stuff” just so it can appear to people that your life is above awesome or that you know so tons of people is a waste of energy. Get busy, but busy about what you are suppose to be doing.

There is a time and purpose for everything. Sometimes, you simply need to rest. Recognize these times and take advantage of them. Every day does not need to become jammed packed with activities and events. Focus on your goals, then take some time to refuel and focus on you. Turn off cell phones and computers and listen to your inner spirit. God wants to lead you, but often you can’t hear him because your mind is too busy. Slow down.

  1. I enjoyed your post. I recently wrote about busyness too. 🙂

    Busyness. In our culture it seems to be a mark of success. Busyness gives us a measure of importance. A stroke of prestige. It establishes our indespensability. Busyness also gives an excuse for relational distance and lack of emotional involvement with the people in our sphere.
