Slow down...and get this book!  Oct 27, 2008
This is an inspiring book about how to identify those things that keep us overly busy in life. Valorie Burton addressed various aspects and effects of busyness that spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally affect us and our relationships. Chapter topics ranged from procrastination and to-do lists to celebrating milestones in life and creating a self-care lifestyle. I appreciated the personal stories Ms. Burton incorporated in the book. I could relate extremely well when she discussed being in a constant state of overdrive and jumping from one activity/goal/achievement to the next, without enjoying the journey.

The bite-sized chapters were ideal, especially for those of us who don't have a lot of time in our schedules for leisure reading. Each chapter offered very practical tips that can be immediately applied to any jam-packed schedule. My copy of the book included a "One-Minute Meditation" at the end of each chapter, which was a Bible scripture that corresponded with the chapter topic.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for simple, practical ways to slow down, re-evaluate their busy schedule and enjoy life again.
A realistic way to get your life on track   Oct 20, 2008
I was not looking for this type of a book when I bought it but when I saw the title and read the note from the author of "Dear reader, I trust that our paths have crossed for a reason" I knew that I was meant to read it.
I first read this book about a year ago and have since read it three more times. I recently started using it as a discussion book for our church adult education program that I am leading due to being inspired by this book's message.
I am not going to say that this book will give you free time that you won't know what to do with but it will help you to prioritize you busy schedule so that you have more times for the foundation of fullfilment, that being your focus on "Faith, Family and Friends"
Although I feel that it is a faith-based book, I did not find it preachy and merely made you focus on what is really important in your life and spending quaility time where it is important.
Very Helpful!  Sep 18, 2008
When I first saw "How Did I Get So Busy?" I knew it was a book I needed to read. Even with all that was going on in my life that contributed to my busy-ness (wife, mother, student), I knew that I needed to make the time to read this book. I am so glad that I did! This book has really made a positive difference in my life, and continues to do so even as I reflect on the lessons I learned. No matter what is contributing to your busy-ness, this book is for everyone. If you want things to change, they won't until you put forth the effort to make the change happen. Stop waiting for the right timing to happen. Make the right timing happen! This book is very enjoyable to read and the structured format is so helpful! I highly recommend "How Did I Get So Busy?"
How Did I Get So Busy?.....  Aug 21, 2008
Valorie Burton is an amazing woman who has used her talents to empower us in our everyday life. As a mother, professor and political candidate, life can get extremely busy. When I purchased this book, I expected to simply get tips of how to maintain an organized schedule. However, I received so much more. Valorie explains how "busyness is often based on fear" (p. 52). What a revelation!

I've shared usurps of "How Did I Get So Busy" with my students and they are astounded at how 28 days of application can change their habits. I encourage all of you to take a moment and read this book from cover to cover and I assure you, the profound message(s) will change your life. Thank you Valorie for helping me to get my thoughts and life back on track. You're truly divine. Sincerely, Dr. Ro 2010
Author brags too much about herself, superficial advice  Jun 26, 2008
I got this book from the library with high hopes but I am disappointed in it. There are many instances I felt the author was just bragging about herself, in the guise of "sharing". By that, I mean she makes opportunities to "share" her own story, but somehow even her so-called problems seem contrived to promote herself. For example, in one part of the book, she was relating that she thinks her own tendency to be busy all the time started in childhood, when her mother put her in kindergarten at the age of four. She then goes on to say she was trying to prove to the world she is "smart" by getting her masters degree at age 21. Well, that does prove she is smart, and surely she knows it, but by the time she is done with telling the story, I was annoyed by the obvious self-promotion. In another segment, she relates of how she and her husband took a leap and bought a home that "nourishes" them physically, emotionally and spiritually. She then gushes about how lovely it is to walk in the streets near her home, how happy she is they took the leap and bought it. Well, that's great, but in these economic times, that sure does seem like bragging.

I got the feeling the author led something of a life of priviledge, and cannot relate to why many of us are busy. She never mentions having children and as a busy mom, I can say a large part of why I am overly busy is the care of my children. Like many moms, I was looking for advice on things like how to slow down without shortchanging the kids, but kids were never really addressed in this book. That is a glaring omission, because kids (or the care of adult parents, or both) add tremendously to one's busyness and most women are in some sort of caregiving role for a large part of their lives. It is very easy to make the adjustments listed in the book if you are a woman with few caregiving obligations, but if you have those issues, then many of the suggestions here will be difficult, if not impossible to put into practice.

The author lacks insight into the reasons why people are so busy, the very real obligations some of us face, and cannot simply reduce by self examination. Some of her points are good, but there appears to be a lack of understanding of the serious responsibilites many of us face.It is very easy to say "slow down" and "take time" but when one is faced with the care of parents and children, or working two jobs to save a home from foreclosure, such advice seems worse than trite.
