Ain’t So Empty.

I read this on one of Oprah’s Aha Moments article and well, had my very own aha…

Dan Ariely, author of The Upside of Irrationality and a behavioral economist at Duke University, writes in the July issue of Wired about becoming enslaved by calendar apps: “Think how differently we’d interact with our calendars if the default was for time slots not to be empty—if, instead, they were prepopulated with tasks like thinking, writing and planning. We’d be far less likely to neglect the opportunity costs: Every time we accept an obligation, it would be clear that we are giving something up.”

How true. Every time we commit to anything, we are giving up downtime. Just a thought.
