This One Question Will Change Your World. – {Not an overstatement.}

It is Sunday night and I just got home from a mate’s leaving drinks. There were about 20 of us, sat around a big outside table, absorbing as much of the remaining Melbourne sun as we good, painfully aware that the winter months are lurking and wondering why we aren’t all moving up the coast to warmer climes like our …

How To Build Trust With Yourself

In August 2018, I made a promise to myself.That every single week for an entire year, I would publish a written blog every Tuesday. (stay with me, this gets better!) There were to be no excuses.  It didn’t matter if it was my birthday (and yes, my birthday does land on a Tuesday this year, it’s 23rd April just so you …

5 Simple Ways To Change Your Results

I just got back from the supermarket (possibly the worst opening line of any blog I’ve ever written but stay with me!). It’s 10 o’clock at night and in recent months, I have developed a habit of leaving my grocery shopping until this late time. Side note! I really wish I was the sort of person who sipped chai tea …

7 Steps To Enjoying Life (and to stop being a twat)

My story isn’t special. No one’s is. That’s not to say it isn’t important. Everyone’s is. But no one escapes the harder parts of being a human being, just like no one escapes getting older (although Cher’s trying bless her) or paying taxes (although Willie Nelson gave it a red hot go). But like Cher and Willie, life will always …

Your Silence Is Dangerous

Three things have inspired this week’s blog. Number one is the (honestly) overwhelming response to my blog from last week (Drugs Aren’t The Problem – read it here), the second is the delightful weekend I spent with my mates and the third is Lady Gaga’s recent Grammy’s win. (Some may assume a tenuous link and you’d probably have a fair …

Drugs Aren’t The Problem

There’s been some negative news in the Australian press recently about a music festival called Rainbow Serpent. Why? Well drugs, really. People go into the Australian bush under the blistering sun and dance to music many don’t understand (full disclosure, I don’t out of context) and while they do so, some of the crowd inevitably push their boundaries with substances …

7 Signs You’ve Lost Your Way In Business

Okay, it’s time to confess. I am writing this blog post a full 9 days before I intend to publish it. In fact, this bad boy is coming to life on my laptop screen even before next weeks has even been conceived of. Seemingly Unimportant Newsflash! But this never happened before, ever. I am not a pre-planner when it comes …

Why Your ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ Doesn’t Cut It.

Before you ask, no, I haven’t magically grown my hair long enough for a high pony tail, nor have I shed 5 kilos or turned into a twat who poses by palm trees. This is an old photo (8 years old to be exact) taken when I had hair long enough for a high pony tail, was 5 kilos lighter …

“It’s Just A Chocolate Roll” – A Lesson In Getting Back What You Put In

It is the day before Christmas Eve, and I am squashed around a table which is just too small for the purpose of housing it’s 10 occupants. My family has gathered at my eldest sister’s house to celebrate Christmas – nieces, nephews, sisters, in-laws and my Dad, and quite frankly the whole thing is bloody lovely (because everyone has just …

Why “New Year, New Me” Can Go Fuck Itself!

Truth be told I ate too many Quality Street over Christmas. And mince pies. And all of it. I just ate all of it. No regrets it was bloody glorious. But yesterday I dragged my wobblier-than-normal ass back to the gym. And fuck me, it was awful. Not because of the squats or the music (why do they play such …
