It has been written in various places that being busy is worn as a badge of honour in today's world. I like to be a bit busy, having enough to occupy my mind and feel like it's worth the effort of driving to work.
My first few weeks in my new job were at the Goldilocks - not too much, not too little, but just enough. Since then I have been gradually getting more and more to do. The situation took a turn for the worse yesterday when my substantially over worked boss had to start his vacation early. I guess I'll be very busy at least for the coming couple of weeks.
Sometimes life as a consultant is busy, other times it is less busy and it's important to recognise when you are not busy in order to relax and enjoy the ride.
