Quote of the Day

“You can feel like a tin can surrounded by a circle of a hundred powerful magnets,” he writes. “Many people are excessively busy because they allow themselves to respond to every magnet: tracking too much data, processing too much information, answering to too many people, taking on too many tasks — all in the sense that this is the way they must live in order to keep up and stay in control. But it’s the magnets that have the control.”
–Psych Edward M. Hallowell, author of “ CrazyBusy: Overstretched, Overbooked and About to Snap” (Ballantine Books, 2006) , quoted in a NY Times article on being wayy too, yes, busy all the time.
