Along with thousands of other students, Jake, our son, has just had his 'A' level results. An interesting time to put it mildly. However, it did get me thinking about how incredibly hard he worked for his mock exams (it's lucky he worked as hard as he did as it has meant he HAS been given a place on the university course that he desperately wanted!) and the parallels with our industry.
It is always easy to look around and think other people have it easy but the truth is that no-one gets to be successful without a huge amount of dedication and effort. I'm not tub-thumping in this podcast, just musing on the fact that no matter what level you're at - or in what field - to make those next steps, you have to be prepared to put in a huge amount of work. But it is always well worth the effort.
