Number two! No, no it’s not what you’re thinking (that’s gross by the way, why would anyone write a blog about that). Before anyone makes any assumptions about what this blog is about please just read on it will all make sense in the end.
Now as most people will know I don’t really like to talk about myself too much, but I am arguably (some might say) number two in all of the things stated below (maybe):
- Most eloquent speaker……. Dave is almost certainly number one here
- Most agile ……. Dave again
- Most annoying ……. Da… (kidding this could be me)
- Strongest …… Aiden I expect
- Best at football ….. Probably Kier
- Funniest ….. Julie
- Closest to 35 years …… Nope Nick is…… I mean this is getting a bit out of hand I know, I don’t even think I would be number one at the biggest forehead competition looking at the staff photos on the website.
Why does this matter? The answer is it doesn’t; the point that I am trying to make is that you don’t have to be the best at everything. In fact, you don’t need to be the best at anything. My advice is to just try your best, listen to what people have to say and use the parts of it that work for you. Its often the case that what works for someone else won’t necessarily work for you, but it might give you some inspiration at least.
I don’t want to be the best, but I do try to be better than the person I was yesterday always learning and listening to everyone including the students at Running Deer. The students are particularly inspiring. An example of this springs to mind where myself and SH often do timed runs around the woods, trying to improve on our previous time and we are constantly looking to find new ways to do better still.
Cheesy quote time from the one and only Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, WWF world champion and film star: “Success isn’t overnight. It’s when every day you get a little better than the day before. It all adds up”.
Finally, I’d like to thank Adam Baxter, my inspiration for this blog, Running Deer’s self-proclaimed number one and who can argue with that!!
