Bit of a quick one today, I’m going to tell you how I start every working day in the best frame of mind possible.
I previously mentioned in my first article that I now live by a new mantra: Time is Of the Essence. I didn’t want to spend > 30 minutes a day keeping on top of current affairs by scrolling through multiple news apps, but the fear of missing out on the likes of what company went public/ who’s making what trade deal, had me scouring through a multitude of sources.
This was hugely inefficient and I often found I was coming across the same news articles in different forms, as there was heavy overlap as I tried to find fresh data. That was until a friend of mine who works in the venture capital industry shared on his Instagram story an interesting take on the daily headlines: The FT News Briefing.
