As an experiment, try doing nothing beyond what absolutely must be done for one week. Wash you clothes, prepare meals, do dishes, and tend to your children. Go to work, don’t stay late, and come straight home. Don’t turn on the computer, TV, or radio. Don’t use the phone beyond what is absolutely necessary. It’s a powerful urban retreat that will help you understand how much time you waste by constructing busy-ness instead of just being.
