UNBUSY Family Life

I used to think the opposite of structure was freedom and I really wanted to get free. The problem is that the opposite of structure is not freedom, it’s chaos and chaos is often what we mean when we say we’re “busy”. The Natural world has figured out how to design flexible patterns of flow that lead to life and beauty in the face of the universal pull toward chaos and complexity… Let’s copy it!

What if we studied how a river is designed to increase access to it’s currents? What if we discovered how a tree is able to grow and increase flow capacity year after year for hundreds or even thousands of years? What if we designed a flow system for our family life based on what we learn from nature that will ensure our time flows to what matters now, and helps us grow our capacity to go after the dreams that seem just out of our reach?

We’ll take a hard look at why “busy” seems to be the universal default and how to get UNBUSY.
