I just came across a very good quote, "No body is too busy, it's the matter of priorities only". It is no secret that in daily routine life we use this lame excuse many times just to cover the truth that, "I could not meet you because it was not my priorities".
Let's have fellow hubbers point of view in favor and against the above mentioned quote.Thanks.
I used to do a lot of work by phone, and one thing that always stripped my gears was to have some receptionist give you the old "he's unavailable" response.
That is the phone etiquette equivalent of "too busy". And just as infuriating.
Me make our priorities, and I'm sorry, none of us are so incredibly busy that we cannot give someone the time of day, even for a moment or two.
Of course we prioritise - if I do not value someone for either their friendship of business I don't show up if something better comes along - as does everybody.
This is an excerpt of one of the interviews with people waiting for news of loved ones in the recent earthquake disaster in New Zealand.
"My mum sent me an e-mail telling me how much she was enjoying her new job. I didn't answer that, I was too busy. Now I don't know if I'll ever get to see her again."
That young man has to live with this for the rest of his life. Better to find the time while we have it.
Sometimes you may be perceived as "too busy" and someone thinks you do not prioritize simply because you do not make Them your priority!!!
A Priority can change from time to time also and one may end up "too busy" for a scheduled appointment. I do not get that upset when someone changes the plan for a good reason. I do not "demand" to know why they did either.
It may be personal or just not my business to know. There are times I may or may not tell someone the exact reason for the plan change. But I will always let them know if I cannot make a schedule.

I wonder how many others publish one of their hubs because they think it is tweaked and good to go ... only to find ... upon a reread that they need to clarify and describe a situation better. I do this all the...
