Thoughts on science and tips for researchers who use computers

No time. How did we get so busy?

May 20, 2014 — Carlos Fenollosa

Excellent piece by Elizabeth Kolbert on busy time. The HN comments are up to the article.

This topic also brings me to the workcrastination mentioned on the four hour workweek which I also mention in tips to work from home. We are humans and kind of feel empty when we have nothing to do, plus being busy is an excellent, accepted social excuse to get out of undesired work.

Eliminatint excess work from life requires a difficult mindset change. I have always been busy, and liked it, but now I'm trying to work less, more efficiently, and be fine with it. Let's see if it's worth the effort.
