Research by Bupa has revealed that almost two thirds of British workers are too busy to take the twenty-minute lunch break that is required by law when they’re working shifts of six hours or more. 
 
In fact, a whopping 28% are not taking any breaks at all during their working day. 
 
Take a second to think about how this applies to your business. Is there a culture of employees or you, being chained to their desks until the end of their shift?  
 
It's worth taking the time to consider what the impact could be? 
It's great being a business owner isn't it?  
We have the luxury of being able to have the flexibility we want which is fantastic! 
 
However .. how often do you find yourself doing that thing that is an art form. It takes lots of practice .. yep I'm talking about PROCRASTINATION! 
 
The art of wasting time. Doing stuff that is not connected in any way to generating income or even doign the other 'top priority' tasks. 
 
The impact of procrastig on your business is HUGE! It's up to us if we succeed so why do we do it? 
Are you busy? All the time ? Just too busy and you tell everyone too? 
 
Well we really need to understand busyness and understand being busy or too busy is our choice! 
 
I'm just so busy has become a stock phrase of today's world. It's like a badge of honour for business owners .. if they are not too busy they are failing! It's as though it's unique to us and we are the only one! 
 
I just didn’t have the time – 
 
The time to write my blogs 
The time to write my book 
The time to develop new programmes or products 
The time to just think about my business 
The time to just stop and be 
 
Do you ever feel like that? 
 
It’s a spiral of feeling frustrated as you know you need to do all the stuff, but you just can’t see how to get the space. 
You know those days where everyone wants a bit of you, your running around in circles and putting everyone else’s needs and requirements above your own list of stuff to do? 
 
There was a time when I used to get to work with my ‘to do list’ ready and end the day having achieved zilch, nothing, not a sausage! I seemed to be at everyone’s beck and call, in meetings that didn’t produce any outcome, people popping into my office to have a ‘non meaningful’ conversation or people just needing to speak to me now because they, quite frankly, were not organised! 
 
Well I decided it was time to take back the control of my time and stop those time vampires.
