      We’re all so busy. Sixty-one percent of Americans today say they don't have enough time to do the things they want to do. But often what's keeping us so busy isn't that important. "Most of us have no problem with being busy, but we’re often busy on the wrong things," says Angie Morgan, coauthor of Spark: How to Lead Yourself and Others to Greater Success.

I asked. He flashed a big smile. "Well, it got me elected president!" he said. Carter was obviously proud of the way he spoke.
