When being busy breeds lazyness

This topic suggestion, Are you too lazy, or too busy?, is from The Daily Post as part of the Post-a-day writing challenge.

I like to be busy. I like to fill my day up with lots of stuff. I like to have a number of projects on the go – which is why I probably like working three different jobs as opposed to only one. If I’m only working on one thing, I get itchy, and need to find something new to work on as well.

However, being busy has its drawbacks. I often find that I can fill my day with so much that I don’t have any time to do the things I enjoy. Or don’t have any time to just relax. Or even to do the things that make a home run. When I’m too busy, the unimportant things tend to fall off my radar, and I just forget to do them. This often results in a kitchen full of dirty dishes, and I’m eating my breakfast out of a salad bowl with a serving spoon. I kid – I generally will wash a dish and spoon when it gets to that stage.

Finding the balance of being busy enough to keep me working at my best, but still finding time to do the things that I enjoy, or the little things that need to get done is often a very fine line.
