Bisy Backson
Do you always work? Are you always busy? If you are, then you are Bisy Backson. What is meant by Bisy Backson is that one considers everything he does as a work. It seems like you find him every where you go. Instead of resting and doing things in easier way, they tend to make work harder than what it really is. "Generally, though, you are safre around threes ad grass, as Backsons tend to avoide them. They prefer instead to struggle along on asphalt and concerete, in imitation of the short-lived transportation machines for which those hard surfaces were designed. "(93). He feels satisfied with himself being busy, active and hard working.

Bisy Backson: Is he really healthy?
Bisy backson is almost desperately active. His life interests are only depended on physical activities such as skydiving, tennis, jogging, swimming and so on. According to him, physical fitness is one of their main concerns. However, he sees it as something that has to be pounded in from the outside, rather than built up from the inside and that's why he confuses exercise with work. "He works when he works, works when he exercises, and, more often than not, works when he plays. Work,work, work."(94). If you want to be healthy, you have to be relaxed and clear your mind to a comfortable stage. It doesn't help to be always chased by your own schedule and set time. However, Backson always seems to have to be goind somewhere, at least on a superficial, physical level. "He doesn't go out for a walk, though; he doesn't have time."(96).

"Well, I was in a hurry."

Perhaps, Backson is in a hurry for a reward. His religions, sciences, and business ethics have tired their hardest to convince us that there is a Great Reward waiting for us somewhere, and we have to spend rest of our lives trying to catch up to it. It works against the natural order of things and makes it harder to be happy. It would stop people from being happy and good but give up on it. "'why ruin it?' he said"(101). Why ruin the nice day trying to catch up with things that are not really necessary? Real progress involves growing and developing, which involves changing inside but that is something Backson is unwilling to do.


Time & Goal
You can't save time. You can only spend it. However, you can spend it wisely or foolishly. The Bisy Backson have no time at all, because he is too busy wasting it by trying to save it. Same with the goals too. If we add up the rewards and the spaces, then we'll have everything - every minute of the time that we spent. To reach a goal, we have to go through a process that makes us developed and happy, but if we do things in teh wrong sort of way, it makes us angry, confused and miserable. "The goal has to be right for us, and it has to be beneficial, in order to ensure a a beneficial process." (111). Enjoyment of the process is the secret that erases the myths of the Great Reward and Saving Time. By Enjoying the Process, we can stretch that awarness out so that it's no longer only a momnet, but covers the whole thing. Then we can have a lot of fun.


"Being Bisy Backsons is a tremendous wast of time."(113).
