I'm highly versed in the art of underachieving, so much so that I'd have to say that it is my greatest achievement to date. Underachievers like me have taken the easy option all our lives, settled for second best, been satisfied with the unsatisfactory.
But spurred on by an overwhelming feeling of dissatisfaction lately, I have made the decision to turn things around,and achieve something really exciting before I turn fifty. I might write a book! I might run the New York Marathon! I might score a guest gig on The Circle!
