Time for a Great Cartoon! (hurry sickness)

Screen Shot 2014-10-12 at 5.50.14 PM

“Hurry sickness” is a real condition that afflicts all of us. The book Faster: The Acceleration of Just About Everything by James Gleick examines our obsession with time.  Amazon’s blurb about this book says: “Most of us suffer some degree of ‘hurry sickness.’ a malady that has launched us into the ‘epoch of the nanosecond,’ a need-everything-yesterday sphere dominated by cell phones, computers, faxes, and remote controls. Yet for all the hours, minutes, and even seconds being saved, we’re still filling our days to the point that we have no time for such basic human activities as eating, sex, and relating to our families.”

The late comedian Lilly Tomlin said, “For fast relief, try slowing down.”Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 4.12.38 PM

Where is “hurry sickness” impacting your life?  What expectations do you put on others to rush around?  What steps help you to slow down?

Time for a Great Cartoon! Playing house!



1.  What patterns are you and I establishing for our children when it comes to our homes?

2.  Do you and your family have dinner together at least three or four times a week?  How do you deal with the out-of-control demand of activities on you and your family?
