We all know the culture of busyness is problem and yet who amongst us will have the courage to do something about it?
As a culture we wear our overwhelm like a badge of honor, leaving remnants of our busy lives littered in our brief email replies and social media posts, like breadcrumbs, leading us back to… to what? Ourselves? I think not.
The New York Times, Inc., Forbes, HBR, Huffington Post, Fast Company and a dozen “influencers” on Linkedin and bloggers agree, as a culture we have hit the height of busyness and it’s not pretty.
To sum them all up: “Look at how busy we all are! Look at how much we all hate it! Look at how bad it is for us! But look at how we keep on doing it anyway!”
