How many times have YOU been told?

How many times have you told your kids to clean their room? Or turn off the lights when they walk out of the bathroom? Who pays the electricity bill for Chrissake? You tell them to study but they'd rather watch YouTube. And don't even think about getting them to empty...

This, My Morning Routine…

A good morning routine can really help you slam dunk the rest of the day. You can write a 'to do' list. Make a good, strong coffee. Walk the dog or get a workout in. Say prayers or meditate. Read 5 pages or maybe journal your thoughts. Perhaps avoid social media. I...

You’re only a Pilot when….

I have a good mate who's a helicopter pilot. I asked him the other day what's it like spending days in the clouds and he said it's just like any other job with it's ups and downs (pun intended). He then said. "But remember, you're only a pilot when you lose an...

3 Days & 1,700 Km

Do You Know Your CAC Score?

On January 17th, 2020 Greg Page went into cardiac arrest. Who's that you may ask? You might not know him by name but you'd recognise the colour of his t-shirt. Yellow. Yep, the original 'Yellow Wiggle'. After performing a bush fire benefit concert in Sydney Greg went...

Slaying My White Whale

November 2019, I had a meltdown. A fetal position, anxiety fueled, bed-sheets-knuckled-under-the-chin meltdown. A week prior, my eldest son had turned 15. The exact age I was when my mother was diagnosed with Melanoma. I was cast back 40 years and saw my trauma,...

Surviving the Stuck: COVID-19’s Silver Lining

So you're listening to the authorities, staying at home and helping to flatten the curve. Good for you. Because in our lifetime we've never experienced a global pandemic. A collective behavioural shift of our everyday routine. It's rare that we're told to stop. To...
