reading 2017: september (2)

Ooops – the peril of not keeping a log of what I’m reading / listening to is that one is invariably missed!

Joe/Frank and I had an early appointment this morning and being out of my routine, I inadvertently left my phone at home. Having no phone made me remember that I’d also listened to the Manoush Zomorodi: Bored and Brilliant audiobook during the month.

If you’re not familiar with this project, you should go watch Manoush’s TED talk.

If you’ve already listened to the note to self bored and brilliant episodes, there’s a fair bit of repetition in the book. This meant I probably didn’t get as much out of this as I might have done if it was new material, but I still found it really worthwhile. 

Definitely worth a listen / read. 

I’m now consciously making an effort to put the phone down and let myself be bored (especially useful on the train this afternoon with no phone to occupy me!).
