From this article

“We live in a competitive society, and so by lamenting our overwork and sleep deprivation — even if that requires workweek inflation and claiming our worst nights are typical — we show that we are dedicated to our jobs and our families. Being “busy” and “starved for time” is a way to show we matter. Put another way, it makes us feel important.”

This is incredibly true. Do I work a lot? Yes. Do I work as much as I think I’m working? Probably not. I’m beginning to realize that because I think about work often I often inadvertently count that as “time on the job” which just isn’t so. I think it also has a lot to do with the fact that I work six days a week, which makes me feel like I’m always always “slaving away” …

That last paragraph got me thinkin’.. what are my priorities? I’ll try it.
