I don’t know a single truly creative mind who is a news junkie – not a writer, not a composer, mathematician, physician, scientist, musician, designer, architect or painter. On the other hand, I know a bunch of viciously uncreative minds who consume news like drugs.
I’ve believed this for a long time, but not had the discipline to consistently keep news consumption out of my life. Once I make my upcoming major life changes I am going to try to incorporate this–for good this time.
It’ll be part of my upcoming “Ideal Day” post.
