Are you too busy? Are you always in a hurry, juggling work and family tasks
like balls in the air? Are you ready to snap?
You’re not alone. Millions of successful adults are being swept up by today’s
frenetic, globalized, technology-driven lifestyle. We have plunged into a mad
rush of activity, aided by high-speed Internet, cell phones, instant messaging,
BlackBerries and email 24/7. We work longer hours, with escalating demands at
work and home.
We expect our brains to keep track of more than they can handle and then find
ourselves losing and forgetting things—impatient, anxious, worried and plagued
by short attention spans. Modern life, for all of its timesaving conveniences,
is sapping our creativity, humanity, joy and, occasionally, our sense of humor.
The speed of our lives threatens to destroy our most important connections.
Unless you deliberately set aside time for what matters most to you, your

less optimistic, less hopeful, less confident and less enthusiastic than
before—and you won’t even know why.
