Is busyness a competition?
APRIL 9, 2020
Back in the late 90s, after having started and run my nonprofit organization for several years while also working a full-time job, I started noticing a tendency to brag about my busyness. The busier I appeared and the more meetings and events I organized and attended, the more important I felt. The latest busyness competition on social media is around how many Zoom meetings we're having in a day, thanks to COVID-19. People are busy. People are overwhelmed.
