As you embark on the daily grind of your commute, fighting strikes by black-cab drivers and the usual nonsense excuses from Network Rail about leaves on the line, spare a thought for some fellow advisers who are about to embark on a journey of a completely different kind.
Phil Billingham Partnership director Phil Billingham, Perceptive Planning managing director Shannon Currie and Mackenzie Investment Strategies director Duncan Mackenzie are about to try to break the world record for the most countries visited in 24 hours.
Joined by pal Gerry Mulligan, the team will set off from Poland on 22 June and attempt to visit 18 countries in the time it takes most of us to stumble to the office and back.
As well as bidding to reclaim the world record for the UK, the team is raising money for the Stroke Association, the Tom Bowdridge Foundation – which funds research into teenage cancers – and the Elsie Normington Foundation, which works with children with learning difficulties.
