The art of idling

Standard

According to Tom Hodgkinson of the Idler magazine, we should be lowering our sights for achievement rather than raising them.  I found his interview on Radio 4’s Today programme somewhat comforting as I continue to do battle with stats and revision for my forthcoming exams.  Follow the link below to hear what he had to say.

I look foward to some ‘beginner level idling’ in a few weeks’ time.

    I love Tom Hodgkinson. I agree with him that people are just overly ambitious and are just too occupied with doing stuff for the sake of doing it.

      I’ve just been looking at reviews of Tom Hodgkinson’s book on amazon – seems like people either get his message or they don’t. A coaching client of mine said his book ‘changed her life’. It’s joined my to read list.
