Do you ever meet somebody who doesn’t tell you how busy they are?
Expressing how much we have going on—without, of course, providing specifics—seems to be our veritable marching orders as humans these days. We conveniently leave out the fact that we’re not learning and evolving more, and where our time is really going is to listicles, Netflix, carping on social media about things that we cannot change. Consequently, that person who used to take two weeks to respond to your email now takes two months, and it’s not like they’ve morphed into a modern-day Socrates in the interim.
