I have no time

Very nice suggestions from Jean Louis Servan Screiber on today’s Le Monde. Modern technology is helping us to use time as if it was elastic, worse than that, we might believe it. We can not gain time, we can use it, avoid wasting it, for sure not gaining it, we always enjoy the same amount of it as our neighbors.

The suggestion given here, to replace the word “time” with the one “life” in phrases like “I have no time” can help see its meaning with a different mind, maybe better equipped to face the always faster pace we perceive in our daily lives.
