the curse of ‘busy’

If, as leaders, we ever use the excuse that ‘we are too busy’ or apologise and then add a refrain that qualifies the apology because of ‘busy’ issues then we need to be aware of what that says to those that we lead.

‘I found other things more important’, ‘I have different priorities’, ‘your issues are not valuable enough to me’…… these things may be true and if they are, we need to admit them and be straight with people, rather than issuing a curse by saying that we were just ‘too busy’.
