Today's world is one of too much: too much work to do, too much communication, too much competition, too much uncertainty and too much information. We are striving to keep up, but inevitably we're falling behind, leaving us with a nagging sense of failure that is hard to shake off. In Busy, Tony Crabbe draws on his background in psychology and work with companies including Disney, Microsoft and News International to debunk the myth that satisfaction in the workplace comes from getting everything done. Instead, he demonstrates that it is regaining a sense of mastery over your life, focusing on making an impact, engaging with loved ones and creating the momentum necessary to make changes that will enable you to thrive. If you want to take control of your career - and your life - make sure you're not too busy to read this book. So many people feel far too busy - unable to work properly on the things that are important to them and stuck in a rut. It's difficult to ask anybody 'How are you?' Without hearing the word 'busy' somewhere in their response. We feel overwhelmed by busyness because of the demands on our time: ☞ our inbox and our to-do list are bulging, ☞ a huge amount of people expect things from us and ☞ our organisations are trying to do more with fewer people. But it doesn't have to be that way. In reality, busyness isn't essential. Yes, there is a lot to do, but believing you're always busy because you have so much to do is both false and unhelpful. Busyness is a normal response to a world of too much, but it isn't the only response. In Busy Tony Crabbe draws on solid psychological research to address one of the great problems of modern life: we're too busy. But it isn't a time-management book. Rather than providing advice for increasing productivity and efficiency, it sets out four key strategies (corresponding to sections of the book) for thriving despite of the overload of too much: 1. Mastery - to move beyond busyness you need to regain a sense of mastery over your life. This section shows you how to build a sense of control back into your life, take responsibility for making choices and how to set boundaries to protect you from the flood of demands and information. 2. Focus - in a world of too much, success is not about doing more at work but about making an impact. This section outlines three ways to move to a career strategy that doesn't rely on productivity alone. 3. Engagement - busyness can cause you to disengage from the people, values and activities that are important to us. This section provides you with the three keys to re-engaging with your work and life. 4. Momentum - part of the challenge to moving beyond busyness is that even if you agree you should make the change, you're too busy to find the time and energy to do anything about it. This section is dedicated to helping you make the change, creating the impetus, energy and clarity to move to a life less busy. In short, BUSY is divided into above four digestible sections-Mastery, Differentiation, and Engagement: ➽ that will teach readers how to switch from managing time to managing attention, ➽ how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn't hinge on productivity, ➽ how to think differently about success by re-engaging with what matters, and ➽ how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we're getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one's life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been more timely in both its scope and in its immediate impact. If you feel overwhelmed and "always too busy" you should read it. There are tones of great points the author makes. What caught my attention? ➽ "We are not to blame when we can’t do it all. We should, however, blame ourselves if we allow our output to be externally driven. We are right to feel guilty when we get to the end of a day and have failed to work on what s important". ➽ "The truth is, every choice has a consequence. Each time you choose something, you unchoose something else". ➽ "I would argue that attention management is far, far more important than time management". ➽ "Clarifying your strategic position helps you to shift your prioritisation away from getting things done, and onto something more proactive and intentional.You start choosing how you will maximise your limited resources, by focusing on just those things that will help you deliver the most impact". ➽ "Succeeding in a world of to much is not about producing “more”; in fact, it is about doing less, better and with more impact. It’s about focusing on fewer, bigger things with enormous energy". ➽ "We are in an attention economy. To succeed we need to capture the attention of very busy people by actively differentiating ourselves. We do this through strategic focus and actively innovating". And the last, but not the least: "No matter how much stuff you have to do, you don’t have to take it all so seriously! You feel less busy if you smile”.
