A critical thing is not to waste a minute of life.  Throw yourself whole-heartedly into it.  Don’t wast a minute and try to make a positive difference in as many other people’s lives as possible.   – Sir Richard Branson

Gail Lynne Goodwin the creator of Inspire Me Today recently met with Sir Richard Branson founder of the Virgin Group. Gail writes,  “I had the honor of spending a few hours with Sir Richard Branson at his home on Necker Island, in the British Virgin Islands.  As I walked into his home, I found him lying in a hammock in an alcove of the great room, open to the warm tropical breezes, overlooking the multi-colored turquoise Caribbean Sea.  Bliss.

“Barefoot and dressed in swim shorts and a tee shirt, he looked more like a Jimmy Buffett fan rather than the founder of the Virgin Group, best known as the only person in the world to have created eight separate billion-dollar companies from scratch, each in a different sector.

Since my return, the number one question I’ve been asked is, “What did you learn from Richard Branson?”

As I listen to their conversation I  realized that Sir Richard Branson is not only living an inspired life – he also articulated the elements that have nourished and continue to nourish his inspired life.  He is a person who not only dreams big – he brings big dreams to life.     Listen to Gail’s interview with Sir Richard Branson
