You’ve Been Busy
15th January 2017
Welcome to your autopilot reactive life seven days a week.
“By the time you land home, you’ve checked a lot of boxes. You’ve been busy, so busy, really must be important. You’ve got so much done. But you can’t remember a thing you’ve accomplished. You feel like your checklist for tomorrow is already longer than what you started with today. And very little of it is meaningfully connected to anything you care about.
Your only intention is to survive, and if that means embracing what was good in your day and proactively creating your tomorrow, you’ve failed mightily. Welcome to your autopilot reactive life.
If you’re like the average person, you will check your smartphone more than 150 times [a day]. You’ll lose more than three hours in the process and end up on Facebook without even thinking about it.”
