The 8 Types of Busy and Why You Need to Know Yours

By January 30, 2024Podcasts

Thank you for joining me today as we delve into a topic that I am so passionate about – busyness. It’s amazing how much time we can waste being busy and how it often consumes our lives. As a leadership coach and author, I have encountered countless clients who struggle with this issue. In fact, it is one of the most common resolutions people make at the start of each year – to stop being so busy.

In this episode, I share with you the 8 different types of busy that I have identified and which I discuss in my book, You Always Have a Choice. By understanding how you do busy, you’ll be able to gain the self-awareness needed to break free from the vortex of busyness.

The 8 Types of Busy:

  1. The Comfort Zoner
  2. The Dramatic
  3. The Badge of Honour
  4. The Disorganised
  5. The Snapper
  6. FOMO
  7. The Control Freak
  8. The People Pleaser

Any of these look familiar to you? Well, if you’re like me, you might resonate with more than one at any given time. I’ll take you through each type of busy and discuss the patterns and behaviours that often come with it. I encourage you to embrace strategies such as delegation, saying no when necessary and prioritising self-care to combat the effects of your type of busy.

So, take a moment to reflect on your own busy habits and start making small changes today. Remember, nothing changes unless you change it!
