Do you know what the goal of a newspaper is?
To sell as many newspapers as possible. That's it.
And what sells newspapers? Bad news.
I've stopped reading daily news quite a few years back for this very reason. Reading the newspaper, or whatever daily news medium, did not do me well.
Now I rather read articles on selected sites on major trends in the world, or monthly magazines, rather than read about yesterday's political scandal or train crash.
Also, if there is something really important and urgent that I should know about, someone that cares about me will tell me for sure.
This week, maybe stay away from all daily news, and see how it changes your life.
Get skin in the game.
PS: Let me know if you are in for the challenge, and what it did for you.
