The Busy Trap

Just got some amazing nuggets from this article

My “ahaha moments” : ( which one are yours ?)

  • Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness;
  • I could see why people enjoy this complaint; it makes you feel important, sought-after and put-upon.
  •  The Puritans turned work into a virtue, evidently forgetting that God invented it as a punishment.
  • Idleness is not just a vacation, an indulgence or a vice; it is as indispensable to the brain as vitamin D is to the body, and deprived of it we suffer a mental affliction as disfiguring as rickets. The space and quiet that idleness provides is a necessary condition for standing back from life and seeing it whole, for making unexpected connections and waiting for the wild summer lightning strikes of inspiration — it is, paradoxically, necessary to getting any work done.

Thank you Tim Kreider  for this great article
