How Do We Know We’re Doing It Right? Essay Collection, July 2020

Modern life is full of choices – but how do we know we’re making the right ones? Why, in our attempts to make life easier, do we often make it harder? With a light touch and plenty of humour, Pandora Sykes delves into the myths we’ve been sold and the stories we tell ourselves, in a timely bid to encourage us to consider the lives we once led, and how they might better serve us. It’s time to stop looking for the answers and start delighting in the questions.
