  • The most positive thing to happen in the past 24 hours: Just coming home from a 10 day holiday break with family and loved ones, and reflecting on how great that was! 
  • Favourite European City: Split, Croatia. 
  • A mistake that Spencer would like you to learn from so that you don’t have to pay full price: The difference between plain Failing and ‘Failing Forward’, is taking the time to make that failure a ‘work activity’, and really go over exactly what happened in this failure and genuinely learn from it and take actions to change the future. 
  • Book Recommendation: Essentialism, by Greg McKeown.
