If you’re a man, each morning as you leave the house you probably perform the bleary-eyed pocket patting ritual that, after a shower, shave and a cup of tea is your sole reassurance that you are in any way prepared for the day ahead. The thinking is that if you’re clean, caffeinated, your flies are up and you’ve got your keys, wallet and phone, you can take pretty much anything the world can throw at you. Seems to work more often than not for me. A little ritual dance, the doorstep twostep. The phone is there in part to listen to a podcast, music or a book on the walk into the office. Terrific, but a very isolating piece of equipment.
