We are living very hectic times, everything must be quick and short. We like to see a movie instead of reading the book, we strive to find shortcuts, instead of taking the time to learn and practice to do things properly. We prefer to pay to get our clothes washed and ironed instead of taking the time to do it ourselves.
We are living our lives on the fast lane.

If we talk about someone we consider very important we refer to that person as being always very busy.
