Two months after you move to London

"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them" –George Bernard Shaw
According to TimeHop, I posted this quote on Facebook one year ago today. I can’t believe how far I’ve come since then!  *Pats self on back*
Entrepreneurialism isn’t about what happened last night, but about the morning after. If you hide under the covers because you can’t face another day of the same old grind, you clearly need more change in your life. If you leap out of bed precisely because, today, everything is going to be different and something is sure to surprise you, then you’re halfway there already.

Compared to a relatively quiet environment (50 decibels), a moderate level of ambient noise (70 dB) enhanced subjects’ performance on the creativity tasks, while a high level of noise (85 dB) hurt it.
