The Urgency Factor

What is The Urgency Factor? Look at how we live life nowadays. How many of us are wired and high-teched to distraction? Fifteen years ago, few of us had cellphones. Now we can't go to the local video store without calling home to our spouse or significant other with the movie selection. In fact, as more municipalities passed ordinances banning talking on cellphones while driving, what was the logical next step? It wasn't to understand that driving takes our full attention or to understand this can be dangerous and simply concentrate on the road. No, many people ran out and got hands-free cellphones.

And email. We're getting and sending emails at hours when it would be inappropriate to make a business call. After 9:00 at night, after 11:00 at night, and sometimes even on weekends. We're guilty of working to the wee hours, too.
