Last night I took part in CIPR Inside’s #ICBookClub on Twitter, expertly run by Annique Simpson. The book we were discussing was Busy by Tony Crabbe.
And of course as irony would have it, several of us admitted to struggling to find time to read a book about being busy! Yet the book really resonated with all of us – it was a little bit like reading about your own life.
It gets you right from the very first page where it’s describing a typical day and how although your family is wonderful, they can be a bit of a burden and distraction, especially if you’re only semi-present – the other half of your mind being engrossed in an email, or thinking about a meeting you had that day or your never ending to do list.
