Of course you’re busy, aren’t we all?

A great article, I don’t want to look busy, sums up our

busy? It’s worn like a badge of honor. To even hint you might not be
busy, conjures up visions of laziness and lack of ambition. As we plan
various activities and events for schools, I’ll often hear, “that’s a
busy time for schools”. Tell me when it’s not a busy time?
