The School of Life / Cultural Mining

"Ultimately, life is only 700,000 hours long so we have to make sure the ideas we need don’t get lost – or take too long to find." - Alain de Botton
This is what the The School of Life does, they sift through the most valuable parts of culture, then mine, extract, and remould it into practical advice to help us maintain our sanity in modern day life.
