💥 MY WEEKLY ROUND UP 💥
Motivation. This is something I have been putting a lot of thought into. I have been reading a book about the topic too - Drive by Daniel Pink. What it doesn’t really make reference too is a global pandemic. At the end of the day…..It doesn’t matter how much passion you have for what you do - the current climate can just take your motivation away.
If you have ever met me you will know how much I live and breathe what I do. However sometimes I lose that zip, it just happens. I’ve worked out the solution to getting back on track though. I need to remove myself from my environment - new experience, new surroundings etc. At the moment we are a bit limited in what we can do but it is still important move the dial where we can. Take a different route home, cook something brand new, call a friend you haven’t spoken to in ages. You get my drift... if you are feeling similar look to see what you can change up. Get creative.

Quote of the Week (Book, Person or Podcast)
I have TWO. I just couldn’t pick!
“It's only when the tide goes out that you discover who’s been swimming naked.” Warren Buffet
I love this quote so much. It’s so easy to say how good you are when the economy is thriving. However in times like this it really shows a person’s true resilience.
“There is only one way to avoid criticism... Do nothing, say nothing and to be nothing” Aristotle
How true is that? Wow. I heard this on the High Performance Podcast episode with Eddie Hearn. Very very good!
Thought of the Week (Statement or Question)
Who are the people who bring you down?
Who are the people that build you up?
Who are the people that keep you grounded - they don’t let you believe your own hype?
What behaviours bring you down?
What behaviours build you up?
What behaviours keep you grounded - they stop you believing your own hype?
What is my main focus next week?
Honestly? I need a 3 hour walk in Richmond Park by myself to get clarity on that. Despite being quite an extrovert I love alone time and thrive when I get a concentrated period of it.
What was this weeks BIGGEST failure?
To be honest nothing. Not that I’ve been perfect. Of course not. I feel that for me failure is when I push the boat out and fall flat on my face at some point. My biggest failure has been NOT pushing the boat out. I haven’t been inspired to do so.
What was this weeks BIGGEST success?
Making some big decisions on my new flat. Pushing the limits of what I can do that will increase the value in the long run! I have never done anything like this (doing up a house) and I have learnt a lot so far.
Main lesson learned this week?
You can't conquer the world every week. Every now and then the stimulus DOES need to come from elsewhere.
Ladies and gents keep your eyes peeled for my recent podcast with @Kelly McLay which will be out on SUNDAY!! It's been a long time coming but it's a beauty!
