“How are you doing?”
“Good, very busy.”
How often do you get this answer from your colleagues, your manager, and even from your partner?

I hear it daily.
It seems that being busy becomes some trend or a symbol of success.
Recently I find out that being busy is totally different than showing up and working efficiently. And it has nothing to do with success and booking results.

The most successful people I know are busy. None of them has ever told me that they have too much time.
They are busy with building their company, busy with learning, busy with selling…
That’s called overcommitment.

What happens then is that they never have enough time to do what they really need or what they really want.
Been there, done that.
I get you.

However, what brought us here can’t bring us there.
We need something else to be there, wherever you want to be in the next 5 or 10 years.
That thing has been called mental space.

That’s where the magic happens, where your creativity will flow, and where you work effortlessly and efficiently.
As a leader, if you don’t take care of yourself, how do you expect yourself to take care of your people?

Stop being busy, decide how you want to show up every day, and stick with it.
Put yourself first.
Create mental space for whatever you want to create in the future.

I designed a workshop for leaders who want to stop being busy and flourish by following their inner wisdom.
It’s in Dutch.
