Bisy Backson

Stolen from alyska via Google Reader (are you on there? Follow me!):

This article has a few excellent points and which I'll summarize in two sentences:
1. Chicago Style pizza is the best pizza in the world.
2. We often say we're too busy to do one thing we don't necessarily wish to do when we should say that we've elected to do other things.

It's subtle but true and likely an over-simplification of the whole thing. Though, I mean, Chicago style pizza really is the best ever.

In the Tao of Pooh, Chapter 7 is called Bisy Backson. Rabbit goes to visit Christopher Robin, only to find Christopher Robin not at home, and a note: “BISY BACKSON” {busy be back soon}. The point of the allegory is that, if you are always busy and going to be back soon, chasing yourself and trying to save time, you will waste the time you do have
