If you put your mind to it

October 21st, 2015 by

With today being Back To The Future day, it’s worth reflecting on two pieces of advice I received in the mid 1980s. The best piece of advice was definitely from the film:

‘If you put your mind to you, you can accomplish anything’.

the worst was my mother:

‘Stop playing on your Spectrum and go and do your piano practice’

I’m not certain this generalises, I think that largely your parents do give better advice than Hollywood script writers.
