Yeah, us too. The immediacy and rapidness of today's information has encouraged us to try and keep up. We want to learn everything, stay connected and still sneak in daily life in between it all. We have the technology that proliferates this pattern and the work demands that encourage it. 

We're not being judgy, but it's pretty obvious why the average person now has the attention span of a goldfish
