Jonathan Shaw, Executive Chairman at Retail Marketing, took to social media to remind his followers of the importance of a virtue that is often glossed over – patience.
Mr Shaw recounted an anecdote relating to his highly disciplined fitness routine.
“Earlier this year I had two setbacks in my training regime. First up was a two-week COVID wipe-out quickly followed by a trail run fall which resulted in two fractured ribs,” Mr Shaw wrote.
“For someone who trains daily, being side-lined for three months was tough; mostly mentally,” he continued.
Just last week, Mr Shaw made a “personal comeback” at a three-island Gozo to Malta swim-run race.
“[T]here I could push myself and feel the progress of the work and commitment I put in these last months. A brutal yet beautiful course made more challenging with last week’s weather,” the Retail Marketing Executive Chairman wrote.
“We need to remind ourselves that everything needs time and fundamentally it’s all about the process, where having a plan and being patient is as important as being committed and pushing boundaries,” he highlighted.
In light of this, Mr Shaw reminded his followers that, whenever they feel stuck, the best course of action is to “trust the process.”
Mr Shaw has held his present role at Retail Marketing since July 2020. He has also been serving as Director Coach at CoachingMinds.eu since June 2020.
