I believe that every day can be remarkable.
It’s my mission to encourage as many people as possible to live a remarkable life, and to help others on their journey to do the same.
Hello, welcome, and thank you for reading more about me.
I’m Magnus Wood and I am a strategist, life coach and writer.
For many years I worked as a strategist for some of the world’s leading advertising and digital agencies on innovative marketing campaigns for brands as diverse as American Express, Guinness, Persil and IBM. Nine years I went it alone as an independent strategist working directly for brands like Coca-Cola, Diageo, Telefonica. I have created and launched new brands, advised tired brands on how to get their mojo back, and advised CMOs on the strategic, technological and operational transformations required to create Remarkable Brands.
As a life coach for over 20 years I have helped many people make positive changes in both their personal and professional lives. But, early on, I found that coaching wasn’t working for me – so I created my own approach – part of which I’ll tell you about in a minute.
I am also the Founder of Be Remarkable – a community of people working towards living more remarkable lives. After a few weeks using Get It Done you’ll be invited to join the Be Remarkable Community.
Ah yes – remarkable.
A couple of years ago I was sitting in front of the TV on a Friday night, the remains of a cold curry sitting in front of me, me wife Isabel asleep beside me. It was much like most Friday nights after a long tiring week at work. I was watching ‘World War Z’, the zombie movie with Brad Pitt. And that’s when it struck me. Remains of a cold Rogan Josh in front of me, slumped in front of the TV, “I’ve become a zombie,” I thought to myself “I’m no better than those mindless creatures in this movie”. And that’s the moment when I decided life must change. I flailed around a bit trying to find a purpose as a north star to guide me out of my zombie existence and, after trying lots of stuff, I settled on the idea of living a remarkable life. For me that means living life to the fullest, being the best version of me, creating, achieving, and sharing remarkable things, experiences and memories.
Every day can be remarkable. And it’s my mission to encourage as many people as possible to live a remarkable life, and to help others on their journey to do the same.
That’s why I set up the #BeRemarkable community – I can’t do this on my own and, quite simply, it’s not possible to live a remarkable life without other people involved, talking, sharing, adding their own spin on things.
I’d like you to think about joining – to see if you are a fit for our merry band.
The way in is through a coaching and accountability service I created called Get It Done! You can find out more and join us at getitdone.works
Every day can #BeRemarkable. I hope to share many remarkable days with you.
