I don't know about you, but I've slept
through periods of my life. Not in bed.
No, sleepwalking through daily
existence. Occasionally I still find
myself going into autopilot - arriving
at work with no recollection of my journey, having the same idle chat,
even with those I love the most, and getting through the day as if it's
just one big checklist. The saying 'familiarity breeds contempt' may
be a cliché, yet it rings true... But should it?
When your eyes (and ears) are fully open and you're not snoozing
your way through life, you discover magic resides even in the most
ordinary of places - the way the morning light hits the city, an
unexpected conversation with a stranger, or just witnessing people
being kind to one another. Everywhere.
This month's cover star has maintained his zest and youthful passion
for life. Richard Branson is a man who refuses to accept things as they
are and continually strives to reinvent the world.
Each day offers a new opportunity for change... Take yours.
PS. We're taking a break in August to rebalance. See you in September.
