A list of things you enjoy

If you are feeling in need of a lift and a distraction from your routine then simply make a list of the 10 things you enjoy doing the most.

Once you’ve completed the list, sit back, look over it and put the list in a draw and carry on doing what you were doing…No, joking. Simply choose something on the list and do it

Next step – repeat.

Then, keep repeating as often as possible until you mainly do things that you enjoy.

Craft versus mass

By Philip Dodson

Our world is now completely dominated by mass.

Small, crafted ‘art’ has been industrialised in the mass market production of goods and services.

The people involved in that process are no more than cogs in the machine and are denied the human pleasure of crafting something special, unique, different, and a work of love.

We are the poorer for mass in every way.

If you get an opportunity in life to craft something then take it.

It’s a magical world when we create rather than simply fulfil a process.
