Busy isn't better

Sometimes I think we like to stay busy because it makes us feel important. And useful. And worthwhile. Like having a planner full of appointments proves you are valuable.

But the most important people don’t care if you’re important.

It may mean we volunteer less, work less, earn less, blog less, tweet less, watch less, see less of some people—so we can really be present to the ones that matter.
