Why are we all so time poor

I caught up with some of my girl friends a few weekends ago and the one thing we all had in common was the phrase “I am so busy” It got me wondering why it is that we are all so time poor these days. We have more time saving devices than I am sure my grandmother would ever have dreamed of, dishwashers, microwaves, washing machines and I could go on and yet I would hazard a guess that we are the generation that will be judged as the most time poor in history.
Is that as women we are too quick to say yes or we simply do not know how to say no? Is it that we like to have our plates so full that they are overflowing or are we forced to have them that full? Is this a problem that is only faced by women or are men feeling the pinch as well?
I can only speak for myself and I have to say that I am my own worst enemy at times. I am too quick to say yes and to put my hand up and to slow to say no, that is when I can bring myself to say it at all. So I am instituting some new rules
1. I will not accept an invitation on the spot i will think about it first.
2. I will consult my dairy more.
3. I will schedule some me time
4. I will learn to say no.
Of course all of this will have to wait until I have time to fit it in.
