The news is just noise.
It pollutes your mind.
Distracts you from your business.
If you want to cure yourself, spend a year reading last week’s newspapers (this is a Nassim Taleb tip).
You’ll realise that 100% of what you’re reading is irrelevant to this week.
Politics, stock markets, sports, whatever. Just noise.
Read the news for entertainment.
For your business, avoid it.
