Let’s accept; busy-ness is an addiction for most of us and we actually enjoy it. It provides us with a sense of being important and in demand, indirectly satisfying our need of job security. If we are not busy or not fully occupied, we may feel insecure.
The issue gets further complicated by the fact that most of us never received a formal training in personal productivity. What is preached in the name of time management does not work either. In reality, there is no time management; there is only self-management we can do.
Self-management requires a mindset change; it cannot be managed by to-do-lists. It requires a higher level of consciousness. We cannot solve the problems with the same level of thinking at which they were created.
