I met someone recently who – on retirement after working abroad for 15 years – chose to spend the first three years of his retirement visiting every household or business in England and Wales with the same surname as himself. There were 1,001 of them and he visited them all – except for seven who refused to see him – in that three-year period. It was a great way to get to know his homeland once again – but think about the personal passion and commitment that drove him to do it. You will not be surprised to hear that he had a distinguished and successful business career –fuelled by the same kind of commitment, determination and focus.
