As little as possible

In a radio interview on a Sunday interview, Mary Portas, the hugely successful shopping brand consultant, was asked what she would be doing afterwards. She listed something involving her family, but said that she tends to do as little as possible on a Sunday because that’s where her best ideas come from - from creating space.

I was driving back from a trip that involved a lot, but as little work as possible. It’s a gratifying reminder that going at full pelt all the time can be blinkering.
