I rarely post twice per day anymore, let alone post something that is simply there to lead to another story elsewhere. But this piece by Tim Kreider entitled The ‘Busy’ Trap from The New York Times resonated with me so much — especially considering what I wrote in my post from earlier today — that I felt compelled to do so.
There are so many quotes I could pull from the article, but I think this one speaks volumes:
It’s not as if any of us wants to live like this; it’s something we collectively force one another to do.
It’s an excellent read that is well worth your time — no matter how busy you (think you) are.
