I find busyness a fascinating concept.
when people apologise that they couldn't do something because they have been so busy, it seems like it's something that is happening to them, not something they have created.
I think busyness is what they have chosen, and they will always be too busy unless they choose otherwise.
it seems to have become a status symbol in some contexts, which maybe explains it better.
