Top 20 things I learned in 2019… As the year winds down to an end, I’ve had more time to reflect on what I’ve accomplished in the year, where I’ve gone wrong, and what I’ve learned.
It’s been a year full of highlights; from growing the team from 5 to 13, writing the first draft of the RNT book, getting absolutely shredded again, travelling #10in10 (I stopped at 10 and reflect on why in the podcast). I’ve also learnt a ton; from the importance of clarity, the power of solitude and how even old mistakes will always come back and bite you later on.
I say this at the end of every year, but it’s been fun looking back and seeing how much life can change in 12 months – a LOT can happen in a year!
It’s a mix of business, fitness and overall life. I think you’ll enjoy this one!
