First day back at work after the long luxurious silly season (although I did work from home) but maaaaaaaaaaaaaan listening to TED talks whilst working has been GREAT.
So gonna hate when it’s a full office again on Monday, or tomorrow. Two awesome soundbites I took from my talks this arvo include:
When you achieve your dreams, it’s not so much what you get, but who you have become in achieving them …
– Henry David Theroux
When you can’t relate to someone, you don’t envy them
– Alain De Botton (why we’re not envious of the queen even though she’s rich and lives in a big house)
That’s a bit dramatic. Still, that’s how I feel.
