By conventional standards my formal education was not a success. I spent most of my time very confused as to why I was there and what was expected of me.
The beauty of this education was that I was never taught how to think and I find one of the greatest strengths is to be able to question everything and think differently.
My real education was started by going motor racing. Three years of race driving, running the team, finding the money and preparing the car taught me a lot and left me in debt (a bit like university). I learned about management and motivation, organisation and planning, selling and media and fear, focus, flow and commitment. I still don’t think I have had another flow experience like the last 2 hours of a 24 hour race that I did.
