I’ve just realised that I do my best thinking on planes.
And during my most recent flight, I made, what might be, one of the most important decisions of my life.
I had 90 minutes all to myself. No email. No phone calls. No wife. No kids. No wifi. No internet. No distractions.
I had just 2 choices.
- Read (Either the in-flight magazine, or whatever I had previously downloaded to my ebook reader)
I chose the latter.
Over the last few weeks I had compiled a list of all my fears, concerns, objections, worries that had been brought to my attention by friends, family and acquaintances.
I went through every item on that list slowly and carefully. And within 20 minutes I had crossed out each and every item.
I looked back at the crossed-out list and at that moment I realised, “I’m going for it!”.
So, yes, I’d be honoured if I am chosen for the Tauranga City Council in 2016.
