1 Lighten your load
You don’t head off to the Aussie jungle with loads of baggage in your case – all you need is the standard issue outfit which is presumably dished out by Ant & Dec the moment you land. When it’s all over, many of the celebs say the absence of material things helped them think more clearly and prioritise tasks properly. The same applies to business – try and lighten your load. You’ll never succeed if you’re saddling yourself with too much stuff all at once – and you’ll spread yourself and your talents too thinly.
2 Concentrate on the most important task in hand
You don’t need me to tell you there are so many different things competing for your attention during every waking minute – even every second. But during the challenges, the famous faces in in the middle of nowhere must focus on just one thing – which could be swallowing kangaroo testicles!
Remember that true concentration is the absence of irrelevant thought. Give your immediate tasks your full attention.
3 Trust and value your team
The celebs have to work together to win challenges – or they go hungry (I’m sure there’s a huge pile of food nearby if they do fail, but let’s pretend there isn’t!). There’s genuine joy when someone succeeds with a task, and their prize is always shared equally among the campmates. A simple but important lesson – hard work and commitment brings shared rewards.
