In late 2018, I switched off WhatsApp notifications on my phone. I wanted to start living less in my workaholic mode and more in the present. I’ve never been a fan of notifications, I don’t want my time dictated to me by a beep or a red icon on my cellphone. I don’t want to be controlled by the comforting familiarity of distraction.
After binging on Peaky Blinders for the first time, I went into 2019 with Thomas Shelby confidence in what my year will be.
I am now modelling my life around what I now call Thomas Shelby energy.
That’s the “Big Dick” energy of 2018, only bigger and badder (but, with less illegal gambling).
