Five Things #82 / by Ross Farley

Every Wednesday I share five things I've liked and think you might like too. Here are this week’s Five Things…

  1. Listening to a lecture or in a meeting? Put that laptop away!

  2. Food for thought from Marcus Aurelius: "People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills. There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind …. So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself."

  3. This is a good list: 52 things Tom Whitwell learned in 2017. Number 48 is pretty inspiring "In 1990, more than a third of people on Earth lived on less than $1.90 a day, adjusted for local prices. By 2013, barely 10 percent of people did." 

  4. I thought you'd find this useful: So You Just Bought a $450 Million Leonardo da Vinci Painting. Now What?

  5. I'm really enjoying Four Tet's latest album New Energy.
