“I don’t like a man to be too efficient. He’s likely to be not human enough.” – Felix Frankfurter, Associate Supreme Court Justice, 1939-62

We pride ourselves on being able to juggle many balls; multitasking, they call it.

But what is the goal? We can’t store away the time we’ve saved by doing several things at one. We can’t turn it into cash.

So, what’s the point, besides living up to a self-image that can create some profound disconnects in your marriage?

In most cases thereĀ is no point, and we use the juggling act to stroke our egos…

…or to avoid intimacy.
