Distance yourself from the unessential.
I don’t get along with a nationalist of any kind because of their hostility. Recently I’ve noticed that one of my old friends is now a Japanese nationalist, and I unfollow his accounts on social media.
It’s not an easy thing to do because he is my old friend, but I have to protect myself from the things that never inspire me. I’m responsible for making myself feel inspired all the time—for the sake of my clients and people close to me.
This world has too many noises. If we’re not well prepared, we easily get distracted by them. All we need to do is distinguish the essential from the unessential, and hack away at the unessential.
