Please Stop Complaining About How Busy You Are – Meredith Fineman – Harvard Business Review

Great observations, but doesn’t go to the heart of the matter: people protest how busy they are so that they won’t seem idle.

It’s like the women in “Schindler’s List” who prick themselves and put blood on their cheeks and lips so they will appear robust and won’t be “selected”.

The “uber-busy” are afraid they’ll be flagged as members of what Marx called “the reserve army of the unemployed” which seem increasingly a feature of our times.
