Playing chess with Sir Richard on Necker Island.

What do you want to do? Who do you want to be?

I read a blog post by Sir Richard Branson this week asking those questions. The post read: “There’s a big difference between being and doing. You can’t do happy, healthy, respected, or appreciated. Decide what you want to be, and then work out what you need to do to make it happen.”

It’s a very simple philosophy but it is very much true, and correlates with how we do business here at UKFast. We’re built on a set of core values that guide what we as a company and a team want to be: ‘dynamic, professional, passionate, innovative and supportive’.

We’ve had these values in place for more than a decade and they dictate every part of UKFast- from recruitment to working processes and incentives. When you work with people who have the same values as yourself, it’s easy to have fun in your role and incredible things can happen.

When you come to set your goals, you need to look at who you want to become on the journey toward that goal. When you look into a career move, who do you want to become in that role? For example, do you want to be a great parent? Does your lifestyle allow for that?

It’s an essential question to ask when considering every goal you set.
