11. We all believethatmoderntechnology can makelifebetterbecause it makeseverythingfaster. But by 11 everything up, we sufferlosses we have not yet learnt
to know. Our day beginswithspeedyurges: the alarmrings and you jump 12 bed. You
take a quickshower. Then you wake the kids and 13 themthroughbreakfast so theywontmiss the bus. At the diningtable, you swallowsomeslices of breadwith a cup
of tea. Wheneverything 14, you hurry to the car, thinking of the things you would
buy from the supermarket on the way 15. Driving 20 minutes in the busytraffic, you
reachyourworkplace, rushinginto the building and 16 up the stairsthree at a
time, arriving at yourdeskwithseconds to spare. You take 17 deepbreaths. Then,
you instantlyrememberthat the 18 you didntfinishlastnightmust be faxed to
Beijing by 10 oclock in the morning.
Yet it seemsthat the 19 we go, the further we fallbehind. Not only in the literalsense of not gettingdonewhat we set out to do, 20 at a deeperlevel. It has come
to the pointwhere my daysfeellike an Olympicmarathon.
