“Life is too short to be busy.”
Tim Kreider, We Learn Nothing
This essay from author Tim Kreider speaks for itself and is absolutely worth the listen.
Our addiction to “busyness” as a culture does not make our lives better. It keeps us away from the people and things we love. It gives us a sense of purpose that is often purposeless, and keeps as in the dark about what our true art is.
It’s summer holiday time. Book an hour, a day, a week–whatever you can–and revel in your laziness. Rediscover, as the Italians say, dolce far niente—the sweetness of doing nothing.
After all, doing nothing IS doing something!
