Balance September 2019 - 21

TH INK LOCAL

Technology and the
internet have made us so aware
of everything happening across the
world, we spend our time freaking out
about problems outside our control. We
need to engage locally and focus on issues
in our own communities that we can
actually affect to see some sort of
progress. Reading yet another
article on Brexit won't
change anything...

Choose your struggle. Get rid of
this idea your problems are going to go
away; you'll always have them. Instead of
trying to avoid them, choose the ones you
want to have in your life, ideally the good
ones. Recognise you have that ability to
decide which one you have entertained
based on what you choose to focus
on, and what you are happiest
to act upon

BATTLES

1 Always remember
gaining followers and
keeping them are two
different things. I keep
followers because
I want to do this for
decades, not to be
flavour of the month
2 Ask your audience
"What message needs
to be said that nobody
else is saying?", then
try to be authentic,
deep and honest

You have to realise that self-worth
is just an illusion, and the approval
and validation that most of us seek from
the world will happen as a by-product of
the growth within ourselves. We know
what we could be doing better, so
do those things better; as you do so,
you'll be presented with greater
opportunities to affect others

Started blogging
in 2008 about big
ideas, and now
delivers life
advice that doesn't suck.
Here is his take on today's
most important topics

C

Concentrate on improving
yourself before improving the world.
Consider the things that you could be
doing better because ultimately, our ability
to affect the world is proportional to how
much we've worked on ourselves. If you're
waking up and spending your morning
posting on Twitter and arguing about
violence in the Middle East, it's
going to feel hopeless

MASTERCLASS

3 Take time to build
relationships, get to
know your followers
and make sure they
get to know you. It
all adds up over time

People are surprised by how
philosophical my new book is. It
has helped people zoom out on what's
happening in our culture and to understand
it from a much broader view. This
intolerance for opposing views is a global
thing and that's worrying. Whichever
side you think is evil, it's not
their fault - it's far deeper

Everything Is F*cked: A Book About Hope
