NatWest CEO Alison Rose said: “Everyone experiences different challenges and obstacles in life. But we hope that Steven’s inspiring story and motivational personality can help people to set and strive for their own goals – whatever they may be.”
NatWest’s research also found that nearly two thirds of Brits feel their life is like 'Groundhog Day' – stuck in a rut of repetitive routine, with the typical Brit spending 3.8 hours of their day operating on 'autopilot' - as they do the same things in the same way every single day.
That equates to 27 hours a week of monotony – or ten years on autopilot over the average lifetime.
Exactly a quarter say they drift through five or more hours a day automatically without any real thought on what they are doing.
For 64% of 2,000 UK adults surveyed by NatWest, there is a daily routine that “hardly ever changes”.
The top five things Brits are likely to do in the same way every single day on autopilot are dressing at the same time of day (cited by 39%), showering at the same time (36%), eating the same breakfast (33%), making the same journey to work (31%) and cleaning their home in the same order (31%).
Eight in ten – 79% - of those who feel they are 'stuck in a rut' of repetitive routine admit that this holds them back in their goals, like world travel and learning a new career, skill or craft – even though three quarters of us have compiled a list of goals we would like to achieve in life.
