Work is a treadmill running precisely at your top speed.

Time is a precious commodity. Education is wasted on the young. Clutter is the cataract of lucidity. Choice is civilisation’s burden.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″ offset=”vc_hidden-xs”][vc_empty_space height=”40px”][vc_single_image image=”1600″ img_size=”full” alignment=”right”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]

Defining choices

Commerce, politics, religion, technology, philosophy. All enablers of personal choice, catalysts of identity, engines of culture, badges of belonging, barometers of success or failure.

Do I need to be jealous of this? Should I agree with this? How would I be perceived if I stuck my badge on that? Ought I redefine myself again?

Your stuff is your avatar. Home is a clutter prison. The gym is a zoo cage for your pride. Work is a treadmill running precisely at your top speed. Social media is an affirmation of your delusions. Feeding it will only increase its hunger.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″ offset=”vc_hidden-xs”][vc_empty_space height=”40px”][vc_single_image image=”1600″ img_size=”full” alignment=”right”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]

Opening minds

In the storm eye of the deluge, there are rare moments of escape, when who said what and which nascent meme demands virality is no more deserving of credence than deciding which socks to wear.

They are intrusions of peace into the war of the everyday.

In these precious fleeting moments, the exhausted rest, worriers forget, workers play, lovers love, daydreamers shine, writers plot, hobbyists busy, musicians hear melody, entrepreneurs scheme, forgetters remember, souls blossom, minds open, life is given a chance.

And learners can learn.

Why are guile and wisdom so derided that learning seems a guilty pleasure, an indulgence afforded only those too young to enjoy it? What could be more productive an investment?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row]
