I’ve just read this excellent article on the New York Times (online), called The Busy Trap. In essence, it says that life is short, we all like to say that we’re busy to feel important, but at the end we might be victims of the busy trap. I don’t necessarily agree on everything, but I found the article fascinating, and stimulating.
I’m lucky. My job, despite being intense and sometimes very demanding, gives me a lot of rewards, not just in terms of money, but in a more general sense.
