Technology in the modern age is leading to out-of-control levels of personal admin
How some people are not coping with modern day admin
Taken from the article
I gave up doing life admin eight years ago. It had got to the point where, in trying to achieve it all, I was waking up at 4am to note down a friend’s birthday so that I could make sure I’d buy a card in time, I was tidying the flat at midnight, I was replying to WhatsApp messages as soon as I received them so they didn’t linger, I was spending hours clearing out my Gmail inbox. I would organise my wardrobe so everything was perfect, I’d listen to voice notes instantly to be a good, available friend, I’d pay bills ahead of time.
