COVID Killed Busyness ... How Can We Keep It Dead? | Keith and Patrick




COVID-19 is the Marie Condo of BUSY schedules. It's wiped our activity schedules clean and given us time back for the small things that make life full. Time for hobbies, impromptu game nights, family, prayer, or reading. Kids can knock on a friends door and know they'll be home to play. COVID has given us space for all the small priorities a busy schedule crowds out. In this episode Keith and Patrick talk about why we were all so busy before Coronavirus, and how we can protect our schedules from business after we slowly return to life post-lockdown.
