“it ain’t going to work out the way you think it will but do it anyway. There is nothing better than…I guess I am a control freak… But being in control of your own destiny of being able to take a holiday when you want to, when you want to go to the school sports day… I can’t imagine anything worse than saying hey boss can I have the afternoon off to go and watch my kids in school sports and being told no you can’t with got this really important thing that needs to get done and you can’t take leave.

But don’t let that stop you from doing it, please.”…[Listen for More]

Because at the end of the day if you tell yourself you can do it enough you will do it.
