CONTROL WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL

Stay Strong

Nicholas Bate, as usual, channeling what I’m feeling right at this moment with his latest 100 words post.

Stay strong. It’s wearing you down: news that isn’t news; reporting that isn’t journalism; Zoom meetings which lack soul and real let’s get this done eye-ball to eye-ball contact. Desperate sameness: eating, sleeping, playing and working in the same habitat. No true hunter-gatherer ever on planet earth did that. Of course it’s getting you down: synapses are over-loading at bandwidths which are exceeding recommended capacity. Of course you are feeling tired and frankly need a holiday. But wait: those are not allowed. Stay strong. Get brilliant at what is under your control. Stay pragmatic and zen-like about the rest. Stay strong.
