Pause and consider – Nicholas Bate

Nicholas is a master of lists but his latest, Pause&Consider 101, is profound.

A selection:

1.  Show up. Good mood often comes later.

41.  Increase the time you invest in yourself everyday. Start today with a lunch-time walk for no reason at all.

51.  Walk on real earth. See the sea or mountains or desert or outback or jungle. At last once a week to stay sane.

65.  Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. Mark Twain.

67.  Choose your coffee carefully. 

68.  Have side projects. They may become your new life.

80. Don’t miss today. Wake up, be reasonable and deliver.”
