Forbes: "one of the books everyone on your team should read"

Kill Busyness Before It Kills You.
Everyone is busy. And it's killing us all.
Do you remember the last time someone asked you how you were doing? Did you tell them that you were "good...but busy?"

Hurry is the new normal. We want to achieve our dreams and live a significant life, so we cram our calendars with nonstop activities.
Instead of feeling fulfilled, we’re distracted, exhausted, and overwhelmed. We have too much to do and not enough time.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!

In Gettin' (un)Busy, you'll learn:
  • ​the inhibiting beliefs that keep you trapped in busyness 
  • ​why time management isn’t the solution
  • ​how to attain your biggest goals 
  • ​the unwanted commitments that keep you from your priorities 
  • ​how to take control of your life so that you don’t burn out
  • ​and much more….

“Everywhere I go, I hear people talk about how busy they are as if it’s a badge of honor that somehow heightens their identity. With counter-cultural insight, Garland exposes the lie of busyness. He paints a picture of a better, more meaningful life that lies beyond the deception of busyness. And he shows you how easy it can be to redefine your life by gettin’ (un)busy.”

“When we greet family, friends and even strangers we ask, ‘How are you?’ What’s their usual response? ‘Busy!’ We wear busyness like a badge of honor. But when busyness becomes stress and burnout, it feels less like honor and more like kryptonite. Our superpowers elude us. Our life purpose escapes us. In Gettin’ (un)Busy, Garland Vance gives you five proven steps to break free from the trap of busyness and begin pursuing your dreams again.”

“Garland provides an extremely thoughtful approach in his book, Gettin’ (un)Busy. His writing, mixed with stories, insight, and evidence, will not only hold your attention, but also convince you that beating busyness is a real possibility no matter how busy you think you are. One read was not enough for me; I wanted to commit sections to memory so that I could better put them into practice. Leaders looking to be more productive in today’s culture, which prioritizes busyness, will want to take a moment and learn from Garland and his (un)busy method.”
