We often keep working trying to avoid something we should be doing. We bury and hide in our busyness, masking our inability to face what needs to be done. We are busy being busy, while not doing anything productive or of real value.

"Embracing new things often requires us to embrace our fears, however trivial they may seem. You deal with fear not by pretending it doesn’t exist, but by refusing to give it decision-making authority."
Almost two months have gone by already! Time flies, doesn't it? It feels as though last week we were just reflecting on our past year and planning for the year ahead. Most of us start every new year with a set of goals we are determined to achieve.
