Want to achieve something great? Here’s what you need
Great teams achieve great things
Think of any of the worlds greatest achievements and consider if they were achieved by any one man or woman.
Flying to the moon – hundreds, if not thousands of people were involved to make that happen
Climbing Mount Everest – it takes a team of local guides to make this dream a reality, not to mention the medical teams, equipment manufacturers, etc
Worlds fasted 100m sprint – it took a team of coaches and nutritionists to make Usain Bolt the greatest of all time
I could go on and on ….
We need support
To achieve anything challenging, we need support. A network of good people around us, rooting for us, offering support when we need them most.
To get, you have to give.
This is something that I’ve let others down on. I’ve not offered a hand, or asked “how can I help?”.
If that’s my attitude, what should I expect of others? Nothing.
Who in your life could be done with your support right now?

You may have heard that the Scottish hills punch well above their weight when compared with much higher mountains across the globe. One of the major contributors to this is the Scottish weather – it can literally change from being a nice calm day to one that challenges survival in an instant. The fortunate thing
There’s a famous saying in Scotland — “if you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it’s likely to change“. At the beginning of the hike — sun beaming down — I’ll have on shorts and a t-shirt. And then shortly after, the clouds roll in, the wind picks up — out comes the waterproofs.
