Adjusting to the level of news noise

I went to a village for two weeks. It was so quiet.

Back in the city I have difficulty falling asleep. So much noise.

With the news it is the other way around.

I’m used to reading a lot of news. So during the first week of this month without news, it feels strangely quiet.

I expect to adjust though. To adjust to the city noise and the quiet absence of news.

Slow long-term projects

Turtles are slow.
Turtles are there for the long term. They become older than humans.

‘Slow’ and ‘Long term’ can be your biggest strengths.
Especially in a time when ‘Fast’ and ‘Short term’ are sold everywhere.

The great things in life are all slow, long-term projects.
Relationships, friendships, children, careers, health, connections in your community, companies.

But many other things in life also profit from a slow, long-term perspective. Great things are rarely accomplished in less than one year.

Think about this new thing you want to do.
How can you turn it into a slow, long-term project?
And if you can’t, are you sure it is important enough for you?
