The 'Busy' Trap - NYTimes.com

Busyness

Almost everyone I know is busy. They feel anxious and guilty when they aren’t either working or doing something to promote their work. They schedule in time with friends the way students with 4.0 G.P.A.’s  make sure to sign up for community service because it looks good on their college applications

That's why my plan is being idle on a bike the next two weeks.
