Life is busy enough just with profession and family. But have you noticed how much "time clutter" creeps into our lives? I just canceled my facebook account this week partly for this reason: there are enough great things to do in life that letting the inconsequential and tedious events and activities share any of the limelight is just plain silly. I've been taking a hard look at my time and where it is spent. I noticed that just like a cluttered household, my time was strewn with things that took time but gave nothing in return.
But now I think I've gotten rid of the clutter, and things sure feel great. I know my kids and wife think so.
