Monday Motivation: 13th February 2023


Hey peps

Big news!!

I’ve signed up to run the Brighton Marathon in April and compete in Hyrox in May.

I’m going to be challenging myself for two great causes - Winston’s Wish, a childhood bereavement charity, and Macmillan Cancer.

All my training and training plans will be posted on my blog and Youtube channel, and I’m starting to share daily updates on Instagram as well.

The Brighton Marathon is only 7 weeks away and I’d really appreciate you supporting my efforts to raise money for Winston’s Wish via my JustGiving page.

Here is your weekly dose of Monday Motivation -  insights on high-performance entrepreneurship and lifestyle optimization.

📚 Something to Read

Blog Post: How to be the BEST: Lessons I learned from Rio Ferdinand

Book: New Sales. Simplified.: The Essential Handbook for Prospecting and New Business Development by Mike Weinberg. I’ve been reading a lot of books on sales and prospecting lately and this one stands out. A great playbook for getting more appointments and closing more deals.

🧠 Something to Watch or Listen To

🎧 Audio Book: The Mindful Athlete: Secrets to Pure Performance by George Mumford. My second time listening to this book. Great for leanring mindfulness techniques that help to transform your performance and achieve your goals. I’m arming myself for a year full of personal challenges!

🎙️ Podcast: Change the Way You Work with Aaron Dignan. Really insightful chat on The Knowledge Project Podcast about how companies and organizations are run and the hurdles keeping us from doing our best work.

✍🏾 Quote of the Week
