Look what arrived!  And on a Sunday too!  I was so surprised when I opened the door to the delivery man today.  I have been waiting for this to arrive for the last couple of days.  I was very impressed when Amazon refunded me too because the book had gone on sale at a lower price following my pre-order.  I ended up paying £9.99 instead of the original £12.12 that I had paid.

Although I love kindle books for the convenience of having all my books with me all of the time, I am really excited to be actually tucking into a real book this time.

I have been flicking through the pages and it’s full of amazing quotes, this one stood out to me straight away and it’s what I was talking about a couple of days ago;

“You’ll make a lot more progress doing little and often than waiting for hours of time to magically free up in your diary.”

I love the first quote that you see when you open the book too;

“We’re here to put a dent in the universe.

Otherwise why else even be here?”

Steve Jobs

The whole idea of this book is to encourage people to realise that it is very possible to create a life free from a job and a boss and actually do something that you are interested in or even love.  John explains how school actually trains us for a job, teaches us to expect to get a job and that anything we do for fun is only a hobby.

We are all capable of being entrepreneurial.  You may not think it right now, but you are capable.  You have something to share that no one else does.  I will keep you updated with what I learn from the book as I go along, but one more quote before I move on;

“A business is simply an idea to make other people’s lives better.”

Sir Richard Branson

The other exciting thing that happened today is that we have finalised the details for our stay in London in a few weeks time. For the last 3 years myself and Jaime have headed off to London to celebrate our anniversary.  It has become a tradition to go to the theatre to see Les Miserables, our favourite musical.  I am so excited!!!  We are staying at a hotel that I stayed at a few months ago when I went to London to attend a workshop put on by one of my mentors Fabienne Frederickson.  It was amazing and I am so looking forward to visiting again.

Anyway that’s all for today, please feel free to leave me a comment.  I would love to hear from you.
