Just so you know, I’m pretty sure I’ve been living a lie!

I had a bit breakdown recently. I was sick. I was tired. I was stressed. They say you have to break down to break through – well, it’s happened.

Here’s the thing.

woman151I always talk about how busy I am. I’m so busy, running around like a hairy goat. I’m busier than most people I know.

BUT HERE’S THE PROBLEM. I get so efficient with everything I do, and in the new time I create, I don’t use it for myself, I just squeeze in more busy work.

Why the hell do I do this?

As it turns out, I now know why.

I’ve forever defined myself as this spreadsheeting, check-listing organisation queen. And I AM that. But you know what? There’s more to me than that. That’s not just the extent of who I am.

What about the rest of me? Well I’ve been hiding it. I’ve been resisting. I’ve not looked inside myself for a bloody long time.

Probably scared of what I’ll find.

So though my business is definitely all about efficiency and productivity, it goes deeper than that. It’s not efficiency for the sake of it. It’s not productivity so you can check off a list. It’s not just being organised so you can create more hours to fit in more busy work.

It’s efficiency, productivity and organisation being used as a tool to create time and space to get to know yourself. To find out who you really are. To stop hiding behind the busyness and peel back who in hell you are underneath all those activities.

That’s my calling, that’s what I’m guided to do. That’s my message. The penny has dropped.

I’m certain I’m not the only one that feels this way. Absolutely certain that I’m not alone.

Stop hiding behind busy work. Behind achievement. Behinds being ‘the reliable one’ and start being yourself.
