“Do something that doesn’t matter.”
Gareth Palmer is Scott's therapist. Together, they unpack the tools they used to take Scott from party-boy to businessman.
Gareth encourages Scott, and all of us, to do things that don’t matter, away from our hectic day-to-day life. As he says, it’s important to embrace moments that are just for us.
Plus, Gareth tells Scott about the “expected self” - other people’s perception of us. It’s down to us whether we choose to live up to that expected self, or change it.
