M for Marathon

The Z to A of Life

Monday, 5 June 2023 - 19 minutes

Life can be like running a marathon at times. Join Jules and Mark as they talk about how to avoid hitting the wall and running out of energy when working towards your life goals.

Both have completed marathons in the past and have likened them to life. First, you have to train and prepare and create habits just to get to the start line. The event itself is the real challenge and you could feel zapped of energy at some point. However, if you dig in and reach the finish line, you can celebrate achieving your goal and be inspired for the next chapter in your life. Working towards any goal, whether it be an exam, a job interview or planning a life event, will have similar principles.

You may want to read more in Mark's book, Half Man, Half Marathon, which interlinks life skills with running. Not a fan of the sport, then grab a copy of Don't Get Your Neck Tattooed for the Z to A of Life. Both of these can be found on Amazon, plus many more tools can are on the Future Toolbox website.
