So, if the Time sooner or later is going away, the human tried to stay the dear visitor stayed with him longer. Every second he spent very skillfully, trying to learn a lot and become wiser, to achieve high goals in life.

It was so until in the ancient world didn’t came a creature named Nothing To Do. It run down the streets and shouted: “Why do you work, why do something, people? It’s boring! The Time is leaving you! It is better just to relax, to live happy, isn’t it?”

People have decided that it says wise things – if they haven’t so much time it’s better to do nothing! They dropped everything and started to “twiddle”. But in fact nothing to do it is boring and joy doesn’t increase in life.
