Financial News at the Urinal

By David Geller   |   November 11, 2013

I was in a restaurant last week that had a TV in the restroom streaming live market updates.  Is our society so addicted to market updates that we can no longer go to the restroom in peace?

We are constantly bombarded by financial news; it penetrates every moment of our lives, gives us information that serves no worthwhile purpose and distracts us from what really matters in life.  Stop focusing on the market’s daily gyrations and start focusing on what really matters in your life.  For me, that is the quality of my most important relationships, doing things I love, and making a positive difference in the lives of others.

Next time I go to the restroom, I’m hoping for sports highlights.
