Earlier this year, I made a commitment to eating clean. Since then, I have been doing a lot of baking, chopping, and cooking in my kitchen. We eat home cooked food for pretty much every meal, and yes, leftovers totally still count as home cooked meals (“Hello, third day pasta. Where have you been all my life?”).
Being busy is a status symbol these days. Ask someone how they are doing or what they’ve been up to, and chances are you might hear the word “busy” in their response. If busyness is the currency of the 21st Century, we all want to be Bill Gates (or P. Diddy).
Have you ever noticed how when you have an appointment with someone who has a 2-month waitlist and charges you $75 to cancel an appointment, you always keep the appointment even when the unexpected creeps up no matter what?
This happened to me the other day. I had a new-patient appointment with a doctor who has a very long waitlist. The afternoon before my long-awaited appointment, my boss says, “Hey, I know your calendar says you’re busy, but we need to move our client meeting to <exactly when my appointment was>.”
