I heard Roy Wood speak the other day. No, not the one that was in the Electric Light Orchestra and Wizzard in the 1970’s and 80’s and looked like an accident in a paint factory, this one. Now, I didn’t really expect to be inspired by a financial adviser, but I was. It just goes to show that you never know where the next little bit of inspiration is going to come from. One of the lessons in Roy’s presentation really resonated with me, he said that if you really want to achieve something you have to put a full shift in, and that might mean working harder than you have ever worked in your life before. Roy works around 200 days a year, and a day means a day. He will do a morning shift, an afternoon shift and an evening shift. What he is doing means so much to him that he is willing to forego work/life balance for 200 days out of 366 (this year). That made me think, and here I am, at 7.15 on a Sunday evening, working.
Are you putting in a full shift?
