Someone pointed me in the direction of Tim Ferriss, who is a sort of do-things-efficiently guru, so I watched one of his videos on youtube. Interesting, I thought; it’s always worth watching people who are good at what they do.
Then I watched another one of his videos, a presentation, in which he quoted Mark Twain: “whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
And I looked at the crowd watching Tim Ferriss, rapt and attentive, eager to learn, as he gave his
talk and I thought, aah, right, got it.
I paused, reflected for a moment or two, then stopped the Tim Ferris film and switched to a Pixies video instead.
This monkey’s gone to heaven.
