Making Connections that Work
Darlene Cohen, author of The One Who is Not Busy, believes there is a cure--a sort of "feng shui for the mind"--for those who find themselves "terminally busy." She believes that human beings can, with a little "mental yoga," regain control of their lives and end the frustration and exhaustion that comes from existing in a cyclone of activity.
Now, mental yoga aside, I'm not entirely certain how one can be both busy and not busy at the same time. Perhaps my mind hasn't developed the flexibility yet to see this; but so far its an either or situation for me. Perhaps that's why I have found Barbara Rose's books so appealing. But Cohen does make a very good point about the impact of terminal business on your life really being a function of personal focus. If we can develop the ability to be flexible and shift focus rapidly as needed, then we're less likely to be bogged down by life. B. Joseph White (auther of The Nature of Leadership) agrees, noting that setting goals and objectives is great; but focus and engagement are the keys to success.
If you're interested in a little "feng shui for the mind," consider Cohen's The One Who is Not Busy. This item retails for $14.95 USD and is available now from your local bookseller or favorite online retailer.
