    @fcd76218, you read my mind! I am so tired of this "increase productivity" line in America. We are all going to croak one day and we need to slow down and just be. Instead of human BEINGS, we have become human DOINGS!! Let's take a deep breath and remind ourselves that no one spent their last breath wishing they spent more time at work or updating FB or doing other useless daily activities. We will only remember/care about the time spent with loved ones, time spent on our fav hobbies that brought us joy and relaxation or fav places we traveled to. Enough already with "increased productivity"!!

    The entire drive to be "more productive" is counter-productive. It makes workers feel like hamsters running on a wheel. The only ones benefiting from all this productivity craze are the employers.
