11. We all believe that modern technology can make life better because it makes
everything faster. But by 11 everything up, we suffer losses we have not yet learnt
to know. Our day begins with speedy urges: the alarm rings and you jump 12 bed. You
take a quick shower. Then you wake the kids and 13 them through breakfast so they
wont miss the bus. At the dining table, you swallow some slices of bread with a cup
of tea. When everything 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 busy traffic, you
reach your workplace, rushing into the building and 16 up the stairs three at a
time, arriving at your desk with seconds to spare. You take 17 deep breaths. Then,
you instantly remember that the 18 you didnt finish last night must be faxed to
Beijing by 10 oclock in the morning.
Yet it seems that the 19 we go, the further we fall behind. Not only in the literal
sense of not getting done what we set out to do, 20 at a deeper level. It has come
to the point where my days feel like an Olympic marathon.
