“You’re Not Too Busy, You’re Just a Little Rude”. That was the title of an article I recently read. It did not give anyone slack for using the "I'm too busy" excuse. The article went on to say that people equate being busy with success, and somehow idle time means you’re lazy. They ignore people and avoid commitments claiming to be too busy.

Do you suffer from FOMO? FOMO means Fear Of Missing Out. While I like to believe that I am above such things, I do have an occasional “attack”.
