I’ve noticed that more people are responding with, “I’m busy,” rather than, “I’m good,” when asked how they’re doing.
This observation got me thinking that being preoccupied and over-scheduled is the new, welcomed normal. If you’re, in fact, like the masses, you’re probably asking yourself, Is this as good as it gets?

Let me share an experience with you, in order to illustrate what I’m talking about. I was recently on a business trip with my husband, and I was talking with a fellow seminar attendee about a book I read.
