“I’m SOOOO busy.” My guess is you’ll hear yourself – and the people around you - saying this A LOT over the next few weeks. Perhaps this is a constant refrain for you all year long.

Let’s face it, there’s a part of us that secretly believes it’s a good thing to be busy. Our commitment to being busy has a lot of benefits, and those benefits drive us to keep creating overly busy lives.

In this episode, I take a candid look at our need to be busy. What motivates us to stay busy? And what we’ll gain if we loosen the grip busyness has over our lives.

On the call, we’ll talk about your specific challenges and desires, I’ll diagnose what I see holding you back, and we’ll consider whether it makes sense to coach together.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner of Ernst & Young in Toronto, where I serviced banks and other large multinationals and led a large group of professionals.

My life expanded when I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint, something I’d always dreamt of doing, but had no reason to believe was possible for me. After a couple years of painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who yearn to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected in their lives every day, and I became certified as a life coach.

I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at GRACE Studio (more formally, the “George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion”) in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. And, of course, producing this podcast for you.
