Calmed by the satisfying sun of a long December evening, Tara and Steve (BDPR’s Directors) sat contemplating the world, and their place in it. They’d just spent the past hours ‘chewing the fat’ over a delicious meal of fish and chips.
‘Why is it that so many of us resign ourselves to a life of underwhelming routine in jobs that don’t make us tick?’ seemed to be the theme of the evening.
We all seem to know that extraordinary amount of our lives are spent at work, thinking about work, or preparing for work. Was there a way of breaking the monotony that wraps us all so tightly to what we’ve come to know?
As if the warm setting of the night had suddenly become a movie set, right on the cue of a break in conversation, a successful local couple that we’d known for years came strolling around the corner from which we were seated. These two people, who we respect and admire, sensed thought in our expressions, and asked ‘What are you two cooking up here?’
In keeping with the frank and open mood of the night, Tara and Steve ‘spilt the beans’ on their plan for a fulfilling life. After the couple had moved on, Tara and Steve shot each other a glance and they both knew that now they’d shared their plan aloud to a couple for whom they have great respect, the idea was going to become a reality.
