5 things we learnt at last night’s Esc Wednesday – Dave Cornthwaite

A big thank you to Dave Cornthwaite for sharing his incredible adventures and unconventional lifestyle with us.

Thank you to everyone who came to last night’s Esc Wednesday – it was a lot of fun. If you didn’t come: here is what it was about. Hope you enjoyed it and found it useful.

5 Things we learnt

1. Comfort kills ambition

2. Take time to think about what you really want from life (write a bucket list)

3. ‘It pays the bills’ is THE worst reason to be in a job. We spend more time at work than anything else, we can’t afford not to enjoy it!

4. Time disappears far too fast, live to ensure you never have to say ‘I wish I’d….’

5. Creativity is the fruit of happiness, in the making and doing of new things we realise the importance in life
