Lack of time

Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Shortage of time

In the industrialized societies, committed to saving time by every possible means, people are increasingly confronted with the lack of time. The time available is increasingly segmented and committed by prior engagements and projects. Tangential or discretionary time, previously an amenity of life, especially in traditional cultures, has become an expensive luxury. Despite a preoccupation with efficiency, people have less time for themselves or for each other.


Counter Claim:

If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.
