Working freelance and remembering that there IS a world out there

Working freelance from home can be a solitary experience.  One of the things that’s helped me is plugging in to Nic Askew‘s wonderfully thought-provoking short film series.

Short 5-10 minute films that explore the incredible depth of human nature.  They put everything into perspective in terms of connecting with the world and not getting bogged down with the trivialities of life.

Nic used to produce them as the Monday 9am Short Film Series.  So I signed up to his ‘alerts’ and they’d be waiting for me when I switched my computer on at the beginning of the week – a great way to start the week and a reminder that it’s not just me and my computer in the world.

I really like this film.

So this is not scientific at all. But in a couple of hours there have been more than 2000 replies and overwhelmingly they say @RoryStewartUK won the #C4Debate

.@RoryStewartUK again absolutely kills the others by actually sounding as though he is fallible. Whether it is sincere or a performance it is working. @sajidjavid also sounds human by talking about getting things wrong as a dad #c4debate
