I think it's important to draw inspiration (in whatever you do) from outside your normal circle.
My principal often shares snippets of wisdom he has gained from watching or reading about the All Blacks. The All Blacks don't really do it for me, but I did really enjoy watching the interview with Rally NZ driver Hayden Paddon on Sunday.
Three things I took away from this:
1) You might be the face (or leader) of something but you're only as good as your team.
2) Trust within a team is essential.
3) To achieve your dream you need planning and foresight (his co-driver described it as the 'video inside his head')
I would love to sit in his co-drivers seat for a squirt around the block!
