I’ve stopped reading the news. After hearing James Altucher saying that it’s all doom and gloom I thought that maybe that’s true. Also time is very precious to me. Could I skip reading the news and instead spend those minutes on something else?
So I stopped. Haven’t read any news site since. Been feeling pretty good about it too. Haven’t missed out on anything of relevance. A couple of months have passed and I never will go back to reading the news.
A few weeks ago I caught a glance at a major Swedish newspaper’s website. The top news was ”New Russian drug makes your brain rot”. So there. Point proven. I rest my case.
