Keep On Running
The Real Forest Gump
We’re big fans of the extra mile.
It’s what sets us all apart from the competition –
the ability to keep on keeping on when everyone else has stopped.
So it goes without saying that we were very excited to work with Jamie Ramsay last week.
As the sub-title and picture suggests, Jamie is the real Forrest Gump.
Jamie started his most recent journey in Vancouver and ran across 2 continents to Buenos Aires – a staggering distance of 17,000km.
Yes, of course you need to be physically tough (and have some serious time to invest), but for us the big parallel with business and so much of life is – it’s all about having the right state of mind. An ability to be keep the positivity alive when it’s all so easy to pack it in.
Jamie told us that what works for him is to break the journey down into bite-size segments that he can handle and sustain the positive thoughts over.
And in true Forrest Gump style don’t constrain yourself to a certain number of miles each day when you set off – as those contraints are all self-imposed. A self-imposed handicap right from the off.
Jamie just kept on running. And we love him for that.
