Is busy-ness the enemy of invention?

What stops us developing new ideas?

What stops us working on our heart’s desire, our latent talent, our real passion?

“I’m just too busy right now”. “Working too hard”. “Maybe next year, when I have finished my A levels, my diploma, my degree, my work…”

Are we too busy to work on the things that are most dear to us? It’s a question only I can answer.

No one can make me stop.

Sometimes it seems to take something pretty major to stop me in my tracks.

Do I wait for this or do I take stock and book myself some time to listen?

  1. I believe that busy-ness is the enemy of many things, invention included. It seems to have become popular to say you are very busy but what is the point in being busy if you are not getting the right things done?
