busy culture

The Economist totalled the time that has been spent watching the "Gangnam Style" video -- 16,000 years. The magazine then asked the question, "What humanity could achieve if it weren't galloping in front of computer screens?" And when was the last time you said, or had someone say to you, "Oh I'd love to do that, but I'm too busy."
Try this out for a week: stop saying, "I'm so busy" or "I'm so tired." Because truth is, so is everyone else. Yes life is busy, but we need to stop comparing our busy to someone else's as though our busy is more important than theirs.
