When “No” Means “Yes”

It’s inevitable…you may have to go through a lot of “no’s” to get to your “yesses”, but don’t quit —> sooner or later ”Yes” is in your future! YES it is! Have a wonderful Christmas.

I’m coming out of the closet…

Ok, ok, I am a country music fan. There. It’s out. Don’t judge me… One of my many favourite country music artists is one Tim McGraw, or as most blokes would know him – Faith Hill’s husband! One of Tim McGraw’s hits is a song which says “live life like you’re dying..” The joke is […]

Free vs Cost.

I am a big dreamer. I’ve always been and I’ll always be. I dream big so that if I don’t achieve my dreams, I’ll at least be much further ahead than I would be if I didn’t dream at all. There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, however, dreams are free but the journey costs. People look […]

Secret Weapon.

I love what former Prime Minister of Israel, Golda Meir (1898 – 1978), once said, “Our secret weapon is NO ALTERNATIVE“. I see too many people give up on dreams.

The Painters.

No, The Painters weren’t a 60′s rock n roll band. It’s just a silly title I thought of for this blog post. Recently, painters had been contracted to paint a large area in our home. They (3 men) arrived at 7:30am and began to re-inspect the area to be painted. I continued to go about […]

Let Me Digress.

I have many mentors. Some I work closely with, others I see or correspond with only now and then, then there are some I’ve never even met with before, but I subscribe to their methods and advice through their written works. Life is one continuous education process and I believe we should never stop learning. […]

Is the Pressure On?

If it is, great! No, I’m not a sadist. I’m not a pessimist. Let me explain… Pressure can make or break you. A lot of good things come out of being under pressure. Most of my creative thinking comes out of being under pressure. Pressure forces you to think of solutions. It forces you to […]
