#4 – A sense of calm and focus, by James Myers – London

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Lego.

 It was the only gift iI wanted for birthdays, for Christmas – for any celebratory occasion really.

What i really loved was the precision, attention to detail and the reward of completing the build. This brought out creative and problem solving qualities which I now value deeply. 

A couple of years ago, I was going through a really tough time professionally and I found myself drawn back to Lego. You can probably tell from the picture below.

It helped give me an alternative outlet from the stress and intensity of work, a sense of calm and focus. Which I now turn to whenever I feel anxious. And I have no doubt others like me do too.
