How busy are you?
Do you wear your busyness as a badge of honor, always looking for ways to fill up the tiniest bit of room in your schedule?
Chris Barez-Brown, author of Wake Up! believes that most people are so busy that they are on autopilot from the time they open their eyes in the morning to the time they close them at night. Their brain is so used to their routines and patterns that they are not fully present in the moment.
There is nothing wrong with filling your day with meaningful activities, but it’s tough to make the conscious choice to pay attention to your world around you. So how do you snap out of this autopilot mode even when you are doing things you enjoy like spending time with friends and family?
Chris wrote Wake Up! For these exact reasons, and he lives for helping people become more happy in the world around him. In this episode of the Leadercast Podcast, Chris talks about writing his book, the concept of being on autopilot, and balancing the conscious & subconscious parts of our brain.
