I’m finally catching up on enlightening history books like ‘Sapiens’ and ‘Guns, Germs and Steel’.
When the timeline of events is expanded to 15,000 years +, perspective on what really matters shifts dramatically.
Contrast this with the constant churn of daily news, which is forced to magnify the transient and mundane, right now, always.
And when we stuff our cognitive bandwidth with incessant noise, it’s no surprise we have no time nor space for clear thinking.
A measure of news worth knowing is when we repeatedly hear it from others first.
Otherwise, it’s probably better if we just switched it off.
