At some point, you have to realize that busyness is hurting people around you.
It hurts your boss, who cannot count on you to deliver what you should.
It hurts colleagues and team members, who have to deal with somebody who is unprepared and unresponsive.
It hurts your partner and kids, who never know when you will be around with body and mind.
It hurts your friends, who are stuck listening to the stories you keep telling.
Many consider busyness as a measure of success. It is actually more often a measure of how far you are pushing your responsibilities.
