Do One More

Three days left of January, and some UK places (not Sheffield) have got a lot of snow today. Annual motivation levels, I’m willing to bet, are probably as low as they’re ever going to get.

Don’t be grateful, be generous

It’s not exactly news that our society prizes the individual. Blame what you like: Baby Boomers, Thatcher, the digital revolution, the stock market, Trump, Millennials, the fall of the British Empire–but here we are. It seems to be entirely at odds with causes like environmentalism (which explains how bad things have got) and at its […]
