Busy Like an American
I have been feeling very busy nowadays, and quite cognizant of how important it was to appear to be busy when I lived in the U.S.
I remember using this fact as a form of greeting:
"Bob, how are you?"
Even today my wife (who was raised in the U.S.) will ask me at the end of any given day whether "I got a lot done?"
I used to answer that in the affirmative when I was living abroad, but here in Jamaica we just kind of laugh together... who cares how much got done... really?
A better qeustion that fits our current circumstances might be "Had a joyful day?"
(Incidentally, I met a young woman yesterday whose first name is "HavaJoy.")
So, I have been keeping busy, without knowing what that means, and apparently getting a lot done as a result.
I am in the process of launching three different offerings to internet audiences, becoming a real internet marketer for the first time. It's a learning curve that is steep, but quite rewarding, as I sold some US$1000 worth in the month of April ... all online.
The next few months should be interesting, as I "keep busy" while undertaking these first-time efforts. Stay tuned.
