“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”


“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

This is an African proverb I’ve read around 8 years ago and I have it in my office .

Why am I bring this up now ?Well we live in a time where there is so much information to absorb, from news , experts , social media etc that one cannot do it !

There comes a time when you have that feeling that the whole world is on your back, you feel the need to know it all and you feel responsible for everything. So what’s happens You become a busy fool you know a lot about unuseful things, this creates problems and frustration .

If you decide that you need to do it all alone it’s going to be overwhelming and frustrated :

What I found is that Listening to what others have to say, as they are going to contribute to your idea. And your idea will then be group’s new idea, and it will grow, contribution by contribution, gaining a strong momentum.

Building a team one can rely on and grow together is key to become successful , as sharing the ideas and the work load will make goals and projects come to a successful conclusion ,

I always say there three sides to every story ,

-your side – their side – the truth !

Building the group around you has a huge positive impact on all aspects

Prioritise what motivates you

I am not the biggest reader but I make a point of reading a business or motivation book monthly. What I found out and picked up a few tips from highly accomplished people like Richard Branson , Warren Buffet , Bill Gates etc , and there is a few things that these Entreprenuer do the same . Here are is one key strategies that a minority of them us .

Prioritise what motivates and give energy to-you:

We all would love to though to be able to take recharging weekend trips, that’s not realistic. However there are plenty of ways to take a break from your weekday routine that don’t involve hopping on a plane, boat or ship 😉 . This could involve everything from having a leisurely Saturday morning breakfast, to sitting reading book , having a drink with friends , there are many ways to relax .

Bill Gates likes to and down on his weekends. “Playing bridge is a pretty old-fashioned thing in a way that I really like,” he said in a Reddit AM session in 2014. “I was watching my daughter ride horses this weekend and that is also a bit old fashioned but fun. I do the dishes every night — other people volunteer, but I like the way I do it.”

Richard Branson takes a slightly more active approach: We read this in The Telegraph that he prefers to spend his Sundays doing more physical things, like paddleboarding, boat racing, and rock jumping.

When you around people for nearly 16+ hours a day , spending time also is something I do really enjoy spending time alone . This can be energising, great time to reflect and meditate on what is important to oneself , looking and add to the goals . A study frond from Harvard’s found that people who spent 15 minutes reflecting at the end of the day had higher levels of performance than their colleagues who did not take the time to reflect on a daily basis.

One key thing I try and do as much as I can , spending time as much as with family , partners, or friends is important, but not necessarily something they have time for Monday through Friday. The weekend is the perfect time to prioritise connecting with your loved one. Ones family is one of the greatest motivation to keep one going during the crazy week and any difficulty that might pop up .
