It seems to me that aside from health and happiness the thing people are most often short of is time. We make lists and check off each "to do", and we schedule personal dates with friends and family much like business meetings; busily tapping these appointments into our iPhone, Droid or Blackberry.
As the average work day / week encroaches into what was traditionally personal or family time, it seems like we have started to adopt behaviors from our work life for our personal lives. I see many friends killing themselves to make the most of their time out of the office; scheduling every minute to run errands, see friends, etc...
So here we are in the midst of a long holiday weekend in the US. The weather in Boston is spectacular - warm but not hot, sunny but with puffy white clouds and I'm enjoying doing absolutely nothing. My major achievement of the day has been devouring a hot fudge brownie sundae at PICCO - a local restaurant all of two blocks from my home.
Have you scheduled yourself into oblivion this weekend? Is your check list of errands so long that you'll need all three days to get through everything? I hope not because sometimes doing absolutely nothing ensures you'll appreciate the time most.
