Happy Holidays.

The quickest way to get what you want is to help somebody else get what they want. Call it “karma”, call it “what goes around comes around”, but when I have a need (or even if I don’t have a need), I’m on the lookout for people to help. Surprisingly I don’t lack for very […]

Winter.

I love summer. I love the longer days, the sun, the beach, and all things wonderful that come with summer. But then comes winter. It always comes. Right after autumn. Right on schedule. This year some Australian states did not have much of a winter at all. But in other states, like the state I […]

F1.

When you train to be a Formula One racing car driver, one of the key lessons you learn is that when you are negotiating a turn at the crazy high speeds the car is travelling at, is don’t look at the wall. Reason being, you will steer the car towards where you are focusing. So […]

The Painters.

Will.

You can have strength but yet remain weak, if you do not use your strength or worse still, you do not use it for the right purpose. You can have knowledge, but yet remain dim-witted and ignorant, if you don’t apply the knowledge that you have and it lays wasted. At the end of the […]

Today.

“Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday, and yet all is well.” – Leslie Weatherhead Worrying is a down payment on something that may never eventuate.

Yesterday Today Tomorrow.

The problem with waiting until tomorrow is that when it finally arrives it’s called ‘today’. Today IS yesterday’s tomorrow. All too often we will waste our tomorrows as we wasted our yesterdays…just as we maybe wasting our today. As you think of all your dreams, goals, and visions of your future tomorrows, begin today to […]
