Have You Been Too Busy?

Randy Glasbergen
We all want to be labeled "too busy" because it sounds productive. Well, you can count me out now because I've learned my lesson well here. I hate being tagged "too busy" because it makes you the most unproductive person in the universe.

I find myself too busy now and then especially when titles I have to write about pile up. That's when I realize I'm most unproductive. I do lots of works but I don't get to do what I really love doing. Yes, I love to write, but not for other people. I love to write for myself---for my own blogs.

Been away much of the recent holidays. I decided I'd just spend time in a farm or any place rural where life is simple and time is slow. I want to live a free life, free from being too busy. I just want to be "a bit busy" now and then with things I love doing---reading, cooking, blogging and spending quiet moments with God looking afar. To me, these are things that really matter. I'm productive when I do them.

I don't want to go back to doing anything that looks like work.

The reason why most people love being too busy is Job Security. Being buried in hard work makes them feel needed and important. In a sense, yes, but it's more like slavery to me. Like how the slaves in ancient Egypt were needed and important to build the huge pyramids. It's meaningless to be too busy like that---building pyramids for other people and later finding yourself dead and buried in that same pyramid, not as Pharaoh but as his slave. It's what makes most people exhausted and lonely.

Here's how to beat loneliness in life. Buy a PDF copy of my e-book.

I'd prefer that no one needs me in their offices as an employee, but that everyone needs the product I sell in my own business. I want a business that would just render me "a bit busy" with the things I really love doing. Some folks are in business, but they turn their businesses into another form of slavery that makes them too busy. It's because of business security---they're scared of losing money.

Makes you understand more why fear is a cruel master. But God says perfect love casts out fear. You have to do what you love doing in life, and what you love doing in life will surely keep you from being too busy.

So, are you too busy?

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
