Staying fresh

Will require:

  • Clarity of vision (and a worthwhile vision to begin with);
  • Recognition of progress made;
  • Acceptance of limits;
  • Forgiveness for failures;
  • Avoidance of (fatal) injury;
  • Encouragement from others;
  • Banter and ridiculousness;
  • Experimentation and risk;
  • Learning and growth;
  • Goals of all shapes and sizes;
  • Embrace of serendipity;
  • Knowing what not to do – including what to stop;
  • Good nutrition;
  • Chocolate and wine;
  • Changes of scene and people;
  • Down time, nights off, days off, and lie-ins.
