Personal eternal truths from Nicholas Bate

Twenty-two personal and eternal truths? How can you resist?

3. We are wired to be distracted: it has huge evolutionary benefit. But that benefit evolved when distraction was infrequent. Now its frequency is numbing our brain, reducing romance to sex and killing the album.

4. A schedule and ‘no’ will get amazing things achieved.

7. Everybody now runs their own business. Ask: why would anyone want to employ me?

22. Writing (1) by hand (2) for no reason at all (3) regularly is remarkably therapeutic.
