Time to drop the act!

Have you noticed how successful people have a knack for making their life look less bumpy than yours? They glide across everyday challenges, unfazed by the dramas that conspire to frustrate your progress. If your dream is to make a good living doing your own thing, this lightness of touch can seem both attractive and unattainable. It’s easy to become discouraged.It’s not like in the moviesWould that we could live in the unreality of the silver screen. There’s a lot less friction. In…See More

What’s the Plan Malcolm?

Demise of this great countryI love travelling. There’s no better way to create a new perspective. After three weeks overseas I’ve found myself reviewing my thoughts on Australia. I think we’ve lost the plot. As a strategist, mentor and consultant, I work with businesses and individuals to create a better future. We work to…See More

What currency are you carrying?

It’s that time of year when many of us head off overseas. Different country, different culture and different currency. I’ve recently returned from my native Britain. Fancying myself as something of a global traveler, I like to keep a bit of local currency in my wallet. (Not quite Jason Bourne, but…See More

Are you a 1 in 100?

I recently heard a great presentation by Scott Ward of Digital Infusions. He introduced the notion of a 90/9/1 rule for industry, social and business network forums such as Linked In. According to Scott: 90% of people watch and do nothing 9% contribute with ‘likes’ and comments Just 1% actually create the content around which everything revolves. I love this observation. Most people are just watching the game rather than playing it. That’s right, 90% of your competitors are not talking to…See More

Finding your bravery in unexpected places

In these uncertain times it’s so easy to get stuck. In a recent PWC report, media expert Megan Brownlow, expressed her pessimism about the Australian sector outlook where businesses are reducing both spend and campaign ambition. “We have to educate a raft of business leaders that behaving in the risk averse way that they…See More

Why it’s OK to play the fool on the hill

I’ve always loved the Beatles. As I explored in ‘Bringing out the greatness in others’ the variety of their music was extraordinary. For me, it’s their quirky songs that stand out; none more so than ‘The Fool on the Hill’ – a…See More

Are you Serious about your future success?

As I build my consultancy helping experts to become confident and successful influencers and leaders, I’m struck by how many time wasters I meet.Of course, these people are an irritation to me. But they’re also wasting their own time, resources and personal ‘energy’ as they flit from one free meeting, seminar or webinar to the next – picking up crumbs, but with no focus or strategy. These are not serious people. I doubt that many of them ever achieve the success they claim to seek.Skin in the…See More

The power of doing nothing

I recently returned from the World Masters Games in New Zealand. We came up empty in the hunt for surfboat rowing medal glory. Team ‘Crusty’ scored a creditable fifth, but sadly those Kiwis don’t play at sport! Hardened crews the lot of ‘em. No out-of-condition pub crews, or last-minute ring-ins attempting to recapture long-past…See More
