BBC: Why you feel busy all the time (when you’re actually not)

You might assume the explanation was straightforward: we feel so much busier these days because we’ve got so much more to do. But you’d be wrong. The total time people are working – whether paid or otherwise – has not increased in Europe or North America in recent decades. Modern parents who worry they’re spending insufficient time with their children spend significantly more of it than those in generations past.

My take-aways from this article:

  1. we suck at managing time
  2. we are not even able to track our time objectively
  3. our attention span is decreasing

And on top of all these, we also take a lot of pride in how busy we are.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
