So, what do you see?

‘Bob, what’s on your mind? You look puzzled.’ ‘How do you see the community of the future Charlie?’ It was a question I wasn’t prepared for although I wanted to give the answer some consideration. After all, the past few months had been a roller coaster. Until recently Bob had a steady, well-paid job inContinue reading “So, what do you see?”

no giving up

When did you last give up? The last time I felt like just walking away, leaving, giving up wasn’t the last at all.  I wouldn’t be human (ok, for clarification on this point, speak with Mrs K.,) I would not be human if I felt that my job, my efforts of encouragement at times fellContinue reading “no giving up”

set up the win

So the world keeps spinning, stories are told, published, people hear and some even listen. The mainstream ‘news’ can be misleading, divisive, rabble-rousing.  So, who do we listen to?I find it helps to stay mindful, understanding that ‘news’ is designed to sell. No-one wants to hear what a fantastic holiday you’ve had, although if theContinue reading “set up the win”

The people person

Early in my career Terry and I shared a carpool.  We’d alternate weekly the responsibility for the drive across town, some forty minutes of discussion on the latest footy results, when we’d be off fishing again, perhaps a beer and most importantly what he, my trade mentor, had planned for me prior the day onContinue reading “The people person”

WhereContinue reading “Let’s go and see … Thursday morn’.”

Lockdown, reflect

Almost all of us have been subject to change recently. We’ve adjusted to adapt with the new order ‘of things’ in different ways, admittedly some adapting under hugely difficult circumstances, but lockdown does have it’s advantages. For many operating their own business, including myself, these past months of adjustment, pivot and learning have not onlyContinue reading “Lockdown, reflect”

This time tomorrow

A little while ago I picked up a manuscript offered by a friend.  ‘Read it for me?’ Reg had asked. It wasn’t a vast tome, some 120 pages of handwritten foolscap (in pencil) and I thought (as I weighed up the copy) that if the story was interesting enough, I would likely spend an afternoon deliberating theContinue reading “This time tomorrow”
