I love when people ask, “Are you busy?”When someone calls me on the phone, before they begin asking or commenting on why they called, almost every time, they will ask, “Are you busy?”It’s a courtesy, of course, and it’s appreciated…but I find it funny. Mainly because it’s very rare to get a phone call when I’m sunning myself on a beach somewhere. Most of the time, a phone call will come in when when I’m working, getting dinner ready, putting clothes in the washer, getting ready to drive my daughter to swim practice, or one of any million other things going on in a typical day.Not that I never relax. I certainly do. But like most people, I’m pretty busy the majority of my day.A quick Google search defines busy as “having a great deal to do.” That is sometimes the case…when your TO DO list is a mile long. It could also mean that you’re focusing on a specific project at that very moment…to be busy working on something.That all being said, I try to not be “too busy” for “people.” There are always going to be “things” that have to get done, and you can’t always drop everything you’re doing. But taking the time to stop and listen, more often than not, gives us the opportunity to make differences in the lives of others, to generate memories, and to stay focused on being human…and rather than task-machines.My general response to “Are you busy?” is “Not too busy to chat with you for a few moments.”
