This is a short and sweet video of David Bowie explaining authenticity and risk taking. Although he’s talking about art, I think the sentiments apply equally to all aspects of life, whether it’s changing careers, trying something new, setting yourself a challenge or, as is the case with me quitting the law to learn how to code, all three!

PS: I’m a huge Bowie fan.  He was omnipresent, soundtracking my childhood via my dad’s (also called ‘David’) hi-fi or the car stereo on family days out and holidays to Cornwall.
