I adore learning and new experiences so when I was given 10 minutes to get ready and head around to a friend’s place in the old city in Chiang Mai on New Year’s day to visit a real Thai Shaman, you can imagine that 9 mins 51 seconds later I was off the phone and […]

Where are you going?

Do you know where you are going in life? Here’s a little secret you may not realise – you don’t need to know. When a river is flowing from the mountains down to the sea, do you think the water focuses on the ocean, or where it is going next? I feel that way too […]

Confidence to fail

Confidence to fail To have confidence, you must also have Confidence to Fail. Without attempting things, your confidence will not grow and it really is a self-fulfilling upward prophecy if you do attempt things. You cannot not grow if you simply attempt to do at least some of the things you really want to. People […]

If you don’t judge, you die…

I have been driving around the Bowen Basin in Central Queensland, for the past few months and as a huge truck and I passed each other between mines today, at a combined speed of around 200kmh I pondered on the topic of judgement. The landscape in this area is predominantly relatively flat with a few […]

Burning Man – 7 days in a desert …

Burning Man is a unique art-induced desert festival held once a year in Nevada. As I sit here on this comfy couch in an exquisite private hillside haven, the lighthouse of Byron Bay is winking its eye at me across a motionless ocean.

What are you waiting for … a tropical island may be waiting for you.

It’s an ordinary day for you at work. You leave … perhaps a little later than you’d have liked to and make your way home. Consider this a Tuesday if you will … do you do anything special? Why not? I did today, and thanks to a little bit of effort on my part, I’m […]
