Has anyone ever told you “they’re so busy”? Have you ever found yourself saying, “I’m so busy”?

Our world moves at a pace unnatural for man. The drive to do more, be more and keep up is a real tension felt by many. It’s all too easy to get caught up with culture’s current and feel the weight and pressure to match pace. The problem? The rat race often leads us in a direction we never intended to go.

Today’s episode is a conversation about the concept of “busy as a badge of honor.” To be busy, it seems, is often equated to our success, our value, our worth. It’s as if saying, “I’m so busy” is unspoken code for meaning and purpose. But is living busy really what it means to live a purposeful and meaningful life?

Is this the life you want to live? Is this the life you were designed to live?

Today’s episode unpacks and challenges this concept.
