‘why are people so busy?’ The obvious reasons we guess is because people want to help others, to work, to be a part of the society etc.
On the other hand, our minds can wander just as bad when we are busy as when we’re not. When we get the choice to be idle we take the chance without doubt but once again we take every opportunity to be busy so we could avoid boredom. So my question is, why do we decide to be idle? Personally, I think it’s a paradox
Being busy doesn’t necessary mean running around from one event to another. No. Thomas A. Edison once said : “Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.” Being busy could be physically or mentally.
After analysing both sides I’ve decided that being busy does help towards being happy and we choose to be idle because we have to find a decent reason for being busy. Would you agree?
"To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent."
