Life is moving fast at the moment, could anyone participating in the modern marketplace argue that with me? At my job we spend quite a bit of time watching, listening, and interacting with people in order to determine what really drives them, and one thing I can tell you for sure about the current state of people's lives is...busy.
Giant Duh from the collective right? Well, when you stop to really think about your own life let's ask a few questions. Are you busier now than you were 3 years ago? Do you do more in one day than you did a year ago? Do you find more time to play in spite of all the work you are doing?
We are all very busy, maybe too busy for our own good. As a matter of fact I think we might have to force ourselves to just relax.
One of my favorite quotes about "busy":
"No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance."
