We humans are full of contradictions aren't we? Sometimes, we don't want to be made to think, or to read, or take some kind of beneficial action, even though we know in our hearts what we're doing is damaging, we can still repeat the mistake, over and over. Yes, we are complicated, but we can learn, progress, and overcome hurdles too.
Many people are busy today - sometimes really busy! Experiencing a stressful lifestyle can also make us lose focus in the task in front of us. As a species, we seem to have elevated impatience to an art form. We want it, and we want it now! Busy, busy, and busy some more!
