Pushed to the Limit: The Real Cost that Busyness is having on us Personally and Professionally Busy- The New Badge Of Honor is Costing Canadian and US Companies over $188 Billion Dollars per Year in Stress-Related Illnesses and Accidents. We’re all just so “BUSY” these days. “Slammed.” “Buried,” in fact. Desperately trying to “keep our heads above water.” “Up to my ass in alligators.” While all of these are common responses to “How are you?” Oh, and if you don’t want to say any of the above, “fine,” is usually the runner-up response. It’s a constant exchange, even a one-up attempt of just how much we have on our plates when we communicate to others about our work and home lives. Breaking Busy – Why busyness, our new norm, is making us sick, depleting our energy and literally causing accidents in our workplaces and our homes.
