Egonomics

Egonomics. Not a new word. But i thought it was. Is there anything new in todays modern age?

Maybe this could be the title of my book. Egonomics : How to keep your ego in check and live the life of your dreams.

Seriously folks, we all have ego’s. But how many of us make money from our ego’s? Is it healthy?

Whilst reading through my Twitter feed one lunchtime i saw a tweet from Khan that had a quote from Frank Leahy which said “Egotism is the anaesthetic that dulls the pain of stupidity”.

We seem to live in a world ruled by what the Press and TV want to tell us about celebrities who are famous for being famous.

The true meaning of the word Celebrity, is someone to be celebrated. What is there be celebrated for someone who has no talent or skill, apart from feeding their ego and making money from that because the press tell us they are so fab, wow, amazing?

I loved what Sir Bradley Wiggins had to say about people being famous for being famous and this crazy celebrity culture we seem to live in. I couldn’t of put it better myself. Have a look and listen to his live interview below.
