    NYT once again gives a platform to a wealthy, unencumbered individual to lecture the rest of us about how we'd be so much happier if we just simplified our lives as he has:


    I assume his TED talk is next.

    Edit: Old article. For some reason I never saw it until today.
  2. Disagree. Busyness is a state of being. Countless people I know are always "busy" and it's always due to their own choices.

    Amen, Cap'n.

    What I think of when I read this is not workaholics, but rather the moms and dads who schedule the hell out of their kids' lives and then bitch about all the places they need to get every day and how the tree isn't decorated just right for the dance recital and the snack shack at the baseball field doesn't have the right color of lollipops and the gift bags for the kid's birthday party don't have just the right 10-cent toy.
