There is not a better way to start out a Monday: Read Nicholas Bate on The Forgotten Fifty. An excerpt:
39. We live in good times. We got complacent. We lost our frontier-land mentality. Bring it back and all will be OK.
40. Distractions, well distract. Reduce them by 75%.
41. Forget time. Notice where you place your attention. Ensure it is appropriate.
42. Write, paint, make music, bake bread, chop wood, carry water, plant flowers... to stay sane in a world of over-brimming briefcases full of electrons.
