Flat White in the cup holder, Motown on the radio, wife Mel at the wheel, it’s 06:25 and we’re rocking our way to London.
Our destination is only 75 miles as the crow flies but we are at the mercy of the M25 motorway, when its good we can do the trip in 1.1/2 hours.
I am spending the day with my client @Supermodel_hair
OK sports fans more later…..
Enroute to london for client meetings toady. Mornings are darker as summer is drawing to a close.
Wembley first stop then into Soho and back to West London.
Well it’s 5:17AM GMT and already we are a few miles into our journey. Glad Mel is driving as I have not slept since 5AM yesterday. Twenty four hours straight with no bed in sight for a another 18 hours minimum.
Will I make #EavChat tonight at 12 Midnight GMT who knows? Not if I have any sense.
I remember the days in corporate life when 12 hour days were the norm, little did I know then that 12 hours was a luxury. Owning and running your own young but growing business requires more than just knowledge, it requires steely determination and a will to win that helps you fight through fatigue to get the job done.
This long day and story reminds me of listening to a millionaire roofing contractor speaking about his life. Can’t remember his name unfortunately, but he said something like.
“I only work half a day 5 days per week, and being the boss, I get to choose which 12 hours I work!
Wish I could remember the accurate quote and the guy’s name.
Well I did say that this blog was for my ramblings….
I spend a fair amount of time in London and travel in and out by car at least once per week, this is a two hour each way journey which I am lucky enough to do with my wife as she does this commute every day.
So I get to be a passenger during the four hour round trip. This gives me quality time to catch up on my social media activity and and notice stuff which is going on around us in the world we are driving through. As well as spend precious time with my wife.
At first thought this commute is a crass waist of my time, but then it gets me out of the office which is cool and as an added bonus the many sights, sounds and other stimuli give me a different outlook from which to form ideas and plans.
I feel so lucky that I have been blessed with the ability think, feel and express my thoughts, and also feel great gratitude to the paying clients that make living my dream life a reality.
Heading into London for meetings including Ecademy Boardroom team, and two Client meetings.
