Champions do extra

My early morning Christmas 2017 read is “Legacy”  – What the All Blacks Can Teach us About Business and Life. ‘Legacy’ is also a tribute to the Maori culture of “unite and inspire” The author is Kerr James and the book is very powerful.

Lately I have been giving a lot of thought to what the next ten years of my life looks like. I have made a commitment to myself to focus on what I love.

I am making a list of my top ten priorities, getting clarity on what makes me happy and what truly lights my fire. I am tapping into the wisdom and support of my special friends. That list has grown this year and I look forward to it expanding in 2018.  I know they will help me to “stand fearless”

I love this quote from the book

‘ Champions do extra- There are no crowds lining the extra mile.’ On the extra mile, we are on our own: just us and the road, just us and the blank sheet of paper, just us and the challenge we’ve set ourself. It’s the work we do behind closed doors that makes the difference out on the field of play, in whichever field we compete, whether we’re in a team, leading a business or just leading our life.
