Information overload

Are we all trying to juggle too much information?

Are we on the whole too active and too stressed?

Perhaps the following can demand too much of our attention so that we leave too little time to stop and reflect what is happening around us:

Always finding the cheapest price rather building relationships with trusted traders that will look after us.
(I have an example of this buying a pair of glasses for myself.)

Doing things like the Internet and Facebook can be addictive and very superficial.

So what really are the things worth devoting are time too?

Here are some suggestions:

Developing really strong relationships with people we meet all the time and on a face-to-face basis.

Developing a difficult skill like playing a musical instrument or being able to draw well.

Learning a foreign language particularly one not commonly taught in schools.
