Most of what passes for news is not useful; it’s meant to get you to consume advertising. And really, how many times do you need to read that Trump has said something stupid?
I learned this lesson in a time management course at HP decades ago, but was reminded last year when taking care of my dad’s funeral and estate details. I was too busy doing useful stuff to read about the Kardashians. It’s nice to see someone writing about this.
I spend less time reading about the latest warehouse fire in Oakland, politician lies, and other things that don’t mean anything to my life, than I used to. Frees up time, our most precious commodity.
