So yesterday we saw Brian Glover as our PE teacher.
He then went on to play a great football match with the kids in the film Kes. It’s a rather more indulgent clip as it’s longer.
But it is definitely worth 4 minutes and 26 seconds of my day. And I hope yours too.
It’s amazing how creativity can make inanimate objects famous.
Goalposts were never so iconic.
And I also remember the genuinely stomach-turning feeling of standing in a field.
Wondering about my own popularity and favour as the bigger boys chose their football team from a lineup that I was a part of.
I was never chosen first.
I was lucky enough to chat to David Bradley (Billy Casper) last year. And he said that what happened at 2:50 “Bloody hurt”.
I imagine it did.
There are two lessons for me here actually. About my business life.
- If I play against people (brands) that I can beat easily, it’s no victory really. So I aim high.
- And secondly, if I am the referee of my own game then of course I will win. Ultimately, the market will decide if Always Wear Red wins as the game plays out. Not me. And I need a good team around me to help.
I’m working on that.
