If you are too busy everyday you should read “the Busy Trap” published on nytimes.
Exhausted. Dead on their feet. It’s almost always people whose lamented busyness is purely self-imposed: work and obligations they’ve taken on voluntarily, classes and activities they’ve “encouraged” their kids to participate in. They’re busy because of their own ambition or drive or anxiety, because they’re addicted to busyness and dread what they might have to face in its absence.
Why are we so scared, why is our everyday so scheduled.
Almost everyone I know is busy. They feel anxious and guilty when they aren’t either working or doing something to promote their work.
I know a few people like this, they feel guilty relaxing…
Even children are busy now, scheduled down to the half-hour with classes and extracurricular activities. They come home at the end of the day as tired as grown-ups.
If this busy trap continues future doesn’t look that fun to look forward to
Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; obviously your life cannot possibly be silly or trivial or meaningless if you are so busy, completely booked, in demand every hour of the day.
This is the real reason many of us are busy or want to be busy. There are so many people i know who have no hobbies other than making money or running a business.
I am not busy. I am the laziest ambitious person I know.
This is the tag line for my life from now on.
My own resolute idleness has mostly been a luxury rather than a virtue, but I did make a conscious decision, a long time ago, to choose time over money, since I’ve always understood that the best investment of my limited time on earth was to spend it with people I love.
Totally agree, sooner people realise this, better the world will become.
