If you are spending too much time fighting fires at work, your career is getting doused.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

The economy would get a serious boost if 10% of business people would apply the 80/20 Rule and spend more time doing work directly linked to building value [planning the work and working the plan] and less time fighting fires.

Some people are way too busy talking to learn...

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

I bet you've noticed some people simply must express their views. If someone interrupts them, sooner or later, one way or another, these people will keep returning to what they were saying until they have finished saying it. And, if they don't think you are listening then they will repeat their message until they believe you have listened

And, these people are quick to interrupt others and squeeze others out of conversations so they can inject their views.

Listening isn't important to these people: they don't feel a need to listen because their minds are made up. 

These people are way too busy talking to learn.

 

If our ancient ancestors thought and acted like they were too busy they would have been eaten. Then where would we be?

The next time you feel inclined to complain about being too busy think of your ancestors.

Wonderful heritage - Evolution didn't let you down.  Did it?

How about your descendants - what are you passing on to them?

Hopefully, you're not passing on the I'm-too-busy gene.

When Alvin Toffler warned us about Future Shock he didn't mention all these people would become so shocked they wouldn't even be able to return phone messages!

"I'm too busy". That's a real good way not to be thinking.

I favour abundance thinking over scarcity mindsets. 

If I think "I'm too busy" then I have a scarcity mindset with respect to time, the most-precious commodity...or darned close to it.

So - I must not think "I'm too busy."

And - I must leave "I'm too busy" to the people who embrace those scarcity mindsets.
