Often in or outside of work you ask people to help you to do something or go somewhere and often you hear back that they are 'busy'. We understand this and sometimes may even feel a little sympathetic.
We are conditioned by the media and modern life to be busy, we all now lead increasingly busier lives in our on-demand 24/7 culture, in fact I cannot remember at work the last time I met someone who wasn’t busy!
But is it true that people can be too busy to do things? And if not, why do they say it?
