This inspiring speech got me thinking about starting every day with as positive an attitude as possible. It’s sometimes the small things that keep us going and this video clip reinforces that for me. I am a great believer in ‘to do’ lists and how much they help keep you on track both in your career and personally. In New Zealand it is the start of the new academic year for tertiary education and thousands of students flock to their new accommodation, meet new people and and start new courses. So for all our students out there perhaps this is the time to check in with a new morning routine and make your bed!
