It’s done, what a year and what a great 31 days to finish. Alcohol free for a month! It was twelve months living at my highest positive energy, doing my best to inspire others to change the game. To show what’s possible if you put your mind to it. We won some battles, lost others. It was a tough end to the year and we eeked out some Q4 growth. Quite rare for a media business right now. If you wanna know how just ask.
I set myself a goal to enjoy every month of year and learn lessons on how to live at my highest vibrations. The evidence suggests I succeeded.
I started the month at Offline with my good friend Howard Lewis thirty random individuals all with no agenda and a fun evening was had by all. He became the latest to sign the book. He is the king of serendipity. My interview with the Press Gazette came out, what a great conversation. After a week a home, Christmas Partied like champions, we were off again. I had written in my letter to the future about finishing the year watching the World Cup final, and what an amazing final to witness! It was a Messi and Mbappe masterclass. We celebrated at Nobu, Novikov poisoned me and we completed a hatrick of sushi at the Kempinski. Doha was safe, well organised, it lacks smiles, friendly faces and humanity. Staff are scared of doing the right things. We left Doha and flew to Bali to finish the year as per last years letter. Which was closed to Europeans when I wrote it! You have to believe.
Here is my thoughts about year. My word of the year has been progress, it’s hard to navigate and even harder to notice.
Here’s the example of being here in Bali it’s rained every day. We had massages daily, had a personal trainer, a chef, facials, yoga and sound therapy. Yet the thing we focused on was the weather rather than appreciating the amazing rebalancing we were doing. We need to notice all the small things that make up our lives for the better. Even if the whole picture is a little blurred. Never let a snapshot in time be the portrait of your life. As we enter 2023 I am going to spend more time on me, making me a smaller, better version of me, writing my next book and sharing all my beliefs and secrets to living to the maximum. I am grateful to my teams, my family and to everyone who had impact on my life this year. I spent time with some powerful individuals who helped me become this improved version of me.
