Matt’s new book, Keeping Your Head Above Water, has just been released, with amazing insights into Matt’s career and achievements. We spoke to Matt to find out his latest news.
I’ve been working on this book for about two years. It’s about my leadership journey and how I have got to where I have through my success framework, which can be used in sport, business and life.
I get up at 5.30am to train. This concludes at 7.30am, and from there I work from 8am till 4pm. Followed by training in the afternoon from around 4.30pm. This will consist of swimming 3-4kms, or gym doing swimming-related movements.
It was challenging not having a Paralympics and not travelling. But I was able to complete an MBA in leadership and innovation and do some short courses in change management too.
My main goal is to compete in the Paralympics hopefully in August of this year. Also promoting my book.
The person in the mirror and knowing that I have the opportunity to improve on my yesterday, today and keep growing.
Part of being fit and healthy both mentally and physically is what we put into our bodies. So it 100% is the most important thing to keep me both active in my sport and in my corporate job at Westpac.
For us all to be the best versions of ourselves.
