The culture of the workplace promotes a culture of appearing to be busy.


In the daily fog of war of conflict, we appear to be busy in the workplace in order to avoid having to confront the hard things:

  • The workplace project that isn’t working.
  • The relationship with the partner or co-worker that’s dysfunctional.
  • The organization that supports and encourages a culture of conflict as if it’s a gift rather than a curse.

The culture of busyness then pervades our family life, our community life, our social life and we wonder why the results of our busyness seem to produce more smoke that fire.

There are a lot of smoke producers in the workplace.
