Hello my friends,

I wanted to connect with you to regarding an article I read that was in my humble opinion, point on about being busy. It is titled, “The Crazy Busy Trap” by Tim Krieder, the author of “We Learn Nothing,” a collection of essays and cartoons.
This is a great read and will make you consider your life, if you are too busy to live or if you are too comfortable not doing much.

Here is a snippet of the article and below is the link for the entire article below. “If you live in America in the 21st century you’ve probably had to listen to a lot of people tell you how busy they are. It’s become the default response when you ask anyone how they’re doing: “Busy!” “So busy.” “Crazy busy.” It is, pretty obviously, a boast disguised as a complaint. And the stock response is a kind of congratulation: “That’s a good problem to have,” or “Better than the opposite.”Notice it isn’t generally people pulling back-to-back shifts in the I.C.U. or commuting by bus to three minimum-wage jobs who tell you how busy they are; what those people are is not busy but tired. 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.”

I hope you enjoy the article and make sure to live life on your own terms.
Carpe Diem
