‘I’M SO BUSY!’

Est. reading time: 59 seconds.

This is now the default response when I ask: ‘How are you doing?’
I roll my eyes when someone gives me this answer.

However, based on the amount of funny animal videos I am tagged in on a daily basis, I suspect that most of us with day jobs are doing as little as I am.

So, what work is actually getting done?

Are we all running late for meetings and yelling in our smartphones, because we are trying to find a cure for cancer? Or developing an alternative for fossil fuels? Probably not.

Nope, because most of the work we do,
Doesn’t matter…

I’ll admit it: I AM NOT BUSY!
I am the laziest person I know, and the world would fall apart if we would all act like me.

Still I’d suggest that an ideal life is some combination between my hedonic lifestyle and the rest of the worlds endless hustle and work ethic.

I know that my laziness is only possible out of privilege (thanks dad).
Nevertheless I made a conscience decision to choose time over money, since you can always make more money!

The best investment of my time is doing the things I want to do and spend it with people I love.

LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE BUSY.
