Episode 91: Andrew Crichton - STANDapart and Decision-Making


Life Athletes, hello and welcome to episode 91 of the Life Athletics Podcast! Today’s guest Life Athlete is Andrew Crichton of standapart.co, creators of lightweight, portable laptop stands. Andrew considers himself as a corporate escapist and has long exited himself from the tedious life of living in the rat race. He believes in being firm in making decisions and pushing through with whatever you have set your heart to do.

Andrew was on the road to becoming a senior project manager, but he wilfully turned it down. While working in the corporate world was rewarding, he never felt fulfilled. He explains this sentiment, and I can’t help but resonate with his thoughts. It’s so refreshing to hear someone else say it out loud. You’ve got to hear his inspiring words on this episode!

For him, it’s all about making a decision and sticking with your decision. It may not work out the soonest you jump off the bandwagon, but eventually – if you work hard enough – it will.

Habit of Thought:

“Revisiting life goals and doing a rough sketch of what life will look like five years from now.”

Habit of Action:

“I have a to-do list that I check during my morning routine.”

Greatest area of strength:

“I’m very decisive.”
