One of my favourite books is ‘How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big’, by Scott Adams, published in 2013. The book is Adams’ life story, but more manual than autobiography. He talks about systems outperforming goals over time. He also, famously, declares in chapter 3; ‘Passion is BS’. He has many reasons for this but essentially it boils down to feeling that passion is a polite and socially acceptable shorthand for all of the individual components of success (hard work, privilege, luck, support, tenacity, and so on). It’s a little bit of a business buzzword, and possibly gets you a win in buzzword bingo.

I recently had the pleasure of a short video chat with Peter Rufus of Nicknack – a branding agency (and designers of the awesome PartridgeGP website). Peter starts off talking about passion and I was reminded of the famous chapter…

I will be talking at our business networking group soon, and rather than talking about passion (Peter is very passionate about his business, and understandably so. I would argue his hard work, skill, and success, have led to passion), I will use stories to illustrate where PartridgeGP has come from, where it is, where it’s going, its WHY, and how it serves you.

For everyone, we believe that having a usual GP or General Practice is central to each person’s care and recommend that people with any health issues that come to the attention of other health professionals should be advised to attend their usual GP or General Practice rather than a specialised service (ie a place not providing the holistic care a specialist GP would).   If  they say that they don’t have a usual GP or general practice, they should be helped to find one and to actually attend it. Call PartridgeGP on 82953200 or make an appointment online here.
