TaskMasters is about doing stuff and being busy.
It’s a reflection on the quest for constant occupation in modern life. Even when we’re not working, we are busy. To be occupied is a sign of a good life.
It seems most of us feel anxious and guilty when we aren’t either working or doing something to promote our work. But whether it’s fueled by our own ambition, drive or anxiety being addicted to busyness keeps us from facing what we have in its absence.
Busyness serves as a kind of existential reassurance, a hedge against emptiness; does this constant activity – going from one thing to the next – wear us down and make us poorer, as people and as a society? Or is it, sometimes at least, a form of devotion, with its own meaningful reward?
