I'm too busy. We've all heard it, we've all said it. Sometimes being busy seems like the theme of our lives. Yet this frenetic pace poses a serious threat to our physical, social, and even spiritual well-being. In this mercifully short book about a really big problem, best-selling author Kevin DeYoung rejects the "busyness as usual" mindset, arguing that a life of constant chaos is far from what God intends. DeYoung helps us figure out a better way forward as he strikes a mature and well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing everything. With his usual warmth, humor, and honesty, DeYoung deftly attacks the widespread "crazy busy" epidemic and offers up the restful cure we've all been too busy to find.… (més)

“I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.
Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.
That’s why award-winning author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his newest book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.
Highly practical and super short, Crazy Busy will help you put an end to “busyness as usual.”

Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem was great if a simple book on a common problem for many people in the Western world.

Reading through it, Kevin DeYoung was able to keep my attention and focus for all 118 pages. I didn’t find any of the information new or profound, but it was a great reminder of many principles that I can lose while pursuing my own busyness.

I found Chapter 3: The Killer P’s to be quite helpful with its focus on pride and the reasons behind why so many of us are overwhelmed with busyness.

Some takeaways that I will be pondering from this book are:

1. “Am I trying to do them (other people) good or to make myself look good?”

2. When people review my previous week and what I spend my time on what would they consider the priority or focus of my life?

3. Do I say yes to the good in life (helping others, serving, being “busy”) and say no to the best of spending time with Jesus and savoring Him.

So, yes – I recommend this book on busyness. It is a great reminder of where we should focus our minds, energy, and hearts. You will probably not learn anything new – it doesn’t have a 10-step program on how to help conquer our busyness. Which is probably the best thing about it.

Instead – it focuses on the possible root of sin in our hearts that could be leading to being overwhelmed with busyness and directs us back to where our focus needs to be: Jesus Christ. ( )

Short and sweet

I read this as part of a course I'm taking, and it took me a little over 2 hours.

DeYoung writes from a Christian perspective. It's very good, some neat observations and sensible recommendations. And an acknowledgement that it's not a simple 1,2,3 step.

Simple. Straightforward. Profound.

I took notes on every chapter and am actually excited about my goal planning now. I notice I'm not stressed like I used to be. This short book was wonderfully freeing.

3 Dangers of Busyness. 7 Diagnoses of possible causes of your busyness. 1 Simple solution.

Phenomenal. ( )
