Publisher's Summary

Business psychologist Tony Crabbe outlines a unique, four-step approach to combating one of modern life's great problems: being too busy.

Busy is divided into four digestible sections - Mastery, Differentiation, Engagement, and Momentum - that will teach listeners how to switch from managing time to managing attention, how to transition toward a career strategy that doesn't hinge on productivity, how to think differently about success by reengaging with what matters, and how to create the impetus, energy, and clarity to put all these changes into effect. Crabbe draws on entertaining psychological studies to show why we're getting it wrong at the moment and to develop a fresh new approach to taking back one's life from chaotic outside forces. Rarely has a book been timelier in both its scope and in its immediate impact.

    "Essential lessons"

    Cheaper 1 is based on one of the most valuable and important lessons that can be taught to people in the workforce today. Getting past busy is one of the most critical factors in achieving success in the modern world.

    The rest of the book is interesting and occasionally useful, but the core lesson and value of the book, in my opinion, is contained in chapter 1.

    "Life changing!"

    The author writes in a relatable and easy to understand way. All of his explanations of why we're so busy are backed by studies. If you want to be happy and enjoy your life as well as the people in your life... Then buy this audiobook as well as a hard copy to have in your library.
    The reader is one of the best storytellers! Loved him!!!
