A person who chases two rabbits is 'too busy' to catch either.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Playing with the ancient wisdom of Confucius...“He who chases two rabbits, captures neither.”

You don't have to chase two rabbits to be too busy. There's plenty of other ways to multi-task your way into feeling then complaining about being too busy.

Disorganized people are too busy because they repeat their problems and their tasks.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Disorganized people make more errors, cause more distractions, and tend to annoy more-organized people.

Disorganized people are work expanders.

Disorganized people are work repeaters.

Disorganized people think they are too busy....they blame Time when the real culprit is their personal disorganization/mayhem.

"Get a Life". Reality TV has added a whole new dimension to that old admonition.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's now incredibly easy to 'get a life'. Our TV remotes provide us a full range of lives...numerous reality choices with many variations on how to annoy other people - annoying co-workers, annoying family members, annoying aspiring singers & aspiring dancers & aspiring entrepreneurs...annoying all types of people in all types of real-life situations...all available at the flick of a switch.

Question:

Do you spend more time (A) annoying other people or (B) watching people you don't know annoying other people you don't know on TV?

And, for those who are not avid practitioners in the art of annoying others...

Do you spend more time (A) solving your own problems or (B) watching other people struggle with their problems on TV?

How is it people who are 'too busy' find time to share their problems with others & watch all that Reality TV?

When 2 pet peeves collide...

(1) People ain't too busy - they just brainwash themselves that way.

(2) Reality TV just ain't - at least it ain't the sort of reality that creates value.

Organized people get more done; disorganized people get more stress.

When we are disorganized we make more errors and errors cause more work...and sometimes cause other people to have negative reactions...and then there is more stress.

Disorganization = more errors = more fixing of errors = repeated work = annoyed people = more stress.

The mob loves reality TV. As technology advances the mob watches real TV people decorate cakes, dance with stars, and catch alligators. The mob has an insatiable appetite for annoying other people - both doing it and watching it being done.

As the techies and academics work away at bringing us the Singularity, the mob gorges itself on a wide range of TV reality shows. What a juxtaposition.
