BUSYNESS

the quality or condition of being busy.
lively but meaningless activity.

people are too busy for empathy

story of the study of seminary students giving a lecture of the good Samaritan and passing up some in need.


"Distraction, Busyness, Rushing.
Empathy requires our attention. You have to notice what you don’t notice. True, an empathetic response can be completely spontaneous, and those treasured moments speak volumes about what is important to us, but more often we aren’t activating our empathy because we’re just not paying attention. You’ve probably heard the oft-used quote, “You have to be present, to win.” "
