"What I most liked about the process was that I was locked in. Sounds daft or even slightly scary, I know, but how many times do you think ‘oh I am totally going to do that’ and then it somehow falls down your priority list, and you never get around to it. I know if I hadn’t signed the Founders Pledge, that would have been me too."
