TOPIC: Standing up to Attention Bullies.

This week, Dan and Merlin talk about the world's impossible expectations regarding each of our own time, attention, and access.

What happens when we tacitly allow the universe to ask us anything any time for any reason? How do we develop the sympathy to understand how vastly our schedules and priorities differ at a given moment?

Well. One possible solution is to learn to find the courage to not be terminally ""busy"" all the time. That's all on us.
