Our latest post for Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group can be found at Fitter, Happier, More Productive. It begins with this question:
We have more access to more data about our health, wealth and happiness than any previous generation. But does more data give us a greater sense of wellbeing?
Well, what do you think?
Shall we ask Tom Waits?
“We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness”
And the dark thoughts of Radiohead? The song “Fitter, Happier” was described by Yorke as a checklist of slogans for the 1990s, which he considered “the most upsetting thing I’ve ever written”. More than ever, we are bombarded with slogans to live by and we need to be centred in order to cope with modern life.
