We have technology at our disposal to help us save time. Then too, we crib about not having enough time at all.
The movie “Before Sunrise” (Brilliant movie and my all time favorite romantic film, btw!) has a very apt comment on this.
Jesse (as he’s taking a stroll with Celine on the roads of Vienna at night):
You know what drives me crazy!
It’s always people talking about how great technology is, how it saves all this time! But what good is saved time if nobody uses it? if it just turns into more busy work?
I never hear somebody say, “Well, you know! With the time I have saved by using my word processor, I’m gonna go to a Zen monastery and hang out”
