This tile doesn't mean anything. After a day at the IAB Engage event, speaking was Nick D'Aloisio; the 17 year old super kid who created the Summly app. Summly was sold on for millions and now Nick works for Yahoo! Someone so young, articulate and rich- WOW. I think almost everyone in the room (900 people) were in awe and slightly jealous and even more so, inspired.
As D'Aloisio ran through the events leading up to working at Yahoo, one thing stood out and that was the hard work he put in and the vision to understand why he worked so hard. What was evident to me is that we can all learn so much if we really wanted to. My friends say I talk a lot because I always go on about doing different things and rarely do it. I hope this was me a few years ago and more recently I have backed up my actions. Case in Point is this website. If we want to achieve something then we have to put effort in, another example is GiveMeTap http://www.givemetap.co.uk/
Here is what we all want to achieve, great success and the ability to give back at the same time.
Looking at Quality v Quantity is something which came from drinking too much last week and time spent at the gym. Last week I drank far too much and lost my bag in the process. I also lost the respect of my family and girlfriend at the same time. There is something in that when you hear the words "free drinks" that people lose all control. Last night I had "free drinks" too but I somewhat controlled myself, didn't lose a thing and remember everything. Know your limitations - I've said this for about 10 years and still don't know them.
When at the gym, I am there for 35 minutes usually, maximum time I will be there is 40 minutes. Quality not quantity, also with this, it is best to not compare yourself to others constantly. If you always do this you wont be happy; definitely have role models and some standards but if you are always comparing you will set yourself up for a fall.
Basically, after a night of not throwing up and hearing a 17 year old speak about his millions I feel like I can achieve and write rubbish too. Watch me fly. (someone catch me when I fall please, and hold my hair back when I throw up too)
