Hi <<First Name>>,
Why are our lives so busy?
Busyness is meaningless. What matters is doing the right things, at the right time, and for the right reasons.
It’s not about a lack of activity or simply cutting your schedule indiscriminately. "Busy" is not the same as full. Our lives should be full of what is meaningful to us. They should be full of purpose, on purpose. Busy is chaos and reduced capacity. Unbusy is intentional, balanced, and sustainable. Unbusy leads to growth and increased capacity over time. Unbusy is working smarter instead of harder to accomplish more of what you are uniquely designed to contribute with your time and energy.
Many think the opposite of structure is freedom, and they really want freedom. There is only one problem:
According to physics, the opposite of structure is actually chaos, and a chaotic life is not freedom. Yet the wrong structure leads to busyness and overwork. This short, fast-paced, practical guide shares what the pastor and author Andy Dragt has learned and what rivers, trees, and even our own bodies already know: it takes a well-designed, flexible framework to thrive in a world full of obstacles and resistance. Whether you are an entrepreneur or a professional, a minister or a social worker, a digital nomad or a stay-at-home parent, it will help you learn to structure your life to accomplish more of what truly matters and feel less busy at the same time.
In Unbusy, you will learn:
- How to reject “busy” as a symbol of status and success
- The physics of flow that overcomes chaos in the universe
- How to design a flow system for your own life
- How to align that system with your purpose, values, and priorities
- How to unlock the power of predictable patterns
- And how to make sure it’s flexible enough to last
It is possible to accomplish more of what matters most to you while also living an unbusy life. This book will help you get there.
