Memories of a Tsunami

As I went for my morning jog today, all of my thoughts were with those who have been affected by the latest tsunami. I was in Thailand only a month before the last major tsunami and the reality of that disaster is etched in my memory. I had taken a number of photos of...

Christmas Opportunity Not to be Missed

I’m not referring to a gift you can buy; this is something you can give yourself: In my post on Monday, I talked about getting my life back on track and why I recommended only planning 100 days ahead. It was then that I looked at the calendar and realised that...

Mike Leyland was an Inspiration

Having worked with Mike Leyland on a number of video productions between 1993 and 1997, I was very saddened to hear of his passing this afternoon. Mike was one of those people who had a naturally laid-back style, a ‘common sense’ approach and an...

Getting Your Life Back On Track

After my sudden realisation last week that I had allowed life to control me, (rather than me controlling my life), I spent a few hours on the weekend working out a new daily schedule. Over the last few weeks I actually achieved quite a bit, but was it all in line with...

What happened to the last two weeks?

I try to make a habit of writing something on each of our websites at least once a week, but time just totally got a way from me in the last two weeks and I simply forgot to do it. It happens to all of us. We can get so tied up in the work or the family activities...

Last Friday, as I was driving around the Parliamentary Triangle in Canberra, I saw a well-to-do gentleman driving a late model Mercedes Benz coupe waiting at the lights. It was a dazzling shiny Benz, which attracted the gaze of a number of others. The driver was...

I’m sometimes hesitant when the phone rings and it says the call is from ‘overseas’. I pick up and answer and there is silence – I know I’ve just been dialed by an automated system and in a few seconds someone with an Indian accent will...

A day I will never forget

There are some dates that will always remain as special in my life and today is one of those. On this day back in 1986, (which seems like just the other day), I first became a father. Yes, today is my little boy Will’s birthday. Happy Birthday Will As parents we...

Who am I? An Important story to Share

As I looked into her sad eyes, they swelled with tears long since held back. One teardrop trickled down her cheek and I could feel my eyes glazing over, as I too felt her pain. After a long silence she asked, ‘Who am I?’ As a life coach, I spend a lot of...

Have the City2Surf joggers been sucked into a vacuum?

In the weeks leading up to the Sydney City2Surf I noticed that there were more and more people out walking or jogging around the lake in the early morning. But since the event a week and a half ago, I’ve hardly seen anyone out and about. I did my jog around the...
