    Such an interesting article! I know many people who seem to be on a treadmill of just “doing”; filling their days with the latest “stuff”. It’s like a race to see who is the best. I’ve often questioned their motives [just to myself]. They just can’t seem to “be”. It concerns me that their goals have taken over everything else in their life.

      Thanks for reading!
