Get your shift together

September 23, 2013 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog

A single parent with no job, battling fear and depression, she described herself “as the biggest failure I knew.”

400 million book sales and $1 Billion later, Joanne describes what changed:

Pebble Feet

“I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”

– J.K. Rowling, 2008 Harvard Commencement Address

The maths is simple. No guts equals no glory.

The chosen ones choose themselves.

Tomorrow (23-09-13) there are 100 days left this year…..still plenty of time to get your shift together, do what matters most and finish the year strong.

These are clever (wait till you read the last one!).
