One of our favourite quotes from the book is:
“Working hard means challenging yourself and always moving forward. If you are working hard and just doing the same thing over and over, there won’t be much progress.You need to think outside the box, or even better climb outside of the box and throw the box away, or recycle into a bigger, better, greener box, or just fashion the box into a range of cute accessories, Whatever you do just get outside of the box! Think differently. Spend time considering what other skill you could benefit from learning…. Get a new perspective and you may discover that eureka moment”
A refreshingly honest and helpful approach to running a business and how to motivate yourself to achieve more in life.
