On the road

When I'm on the road, doing my speaking gigs or just travelling to work with folk far away, I find things are a bit clearer.

Maybe it's view from 30000 ft, maybe the tiredness, maybe the isolation from the daily round but it always reminds me why I do what I do and why it matters. (props to Hugh)

And why not doing it is impossible (or at least not possible for me – check the middle 8 here for more details)

    This is exactly what I experience while travelling.
    whether it’s a 2 hour flight or Intercontinental, I think it’s the isolation that makes the experience special.
    Always do the most ‘mind mapping’ in flight. Never leave your home without your Moleskine© I guess 😉

    I think it was Gandhi who said “What you do is of little importance. But it is very important that you do it.”
    And by the way? Did Mark Earls cut his hair???
    Cheers and keep doing what you do as it matters. Alot.

    Yikes. That’s quite old…
    Thanks for the kind words.
