A Tribute to Dads

Sep 04, 2020

It’s Father's Day in Australia this weekend. There might be many of you that can’t get to see or connect with them because of your isolation/lockdown situation. Some may have passed since last Father's Day. I lost my father when I was 10 years old. I wrote this some time after to try and express how much I missed him…and still do.

Dad, I need some advice

Is it a Ford or a Rover I can’t tell

The other kids, they know very well

Which classes to take?

Should I bake a cake?

Dad, I need some advice

 

When to come home 11 or 10?

It’s my choice since I don’t know when

Is she good enough?

Girlfriends and all that stuff

Dad, I need some advice

 

Mum’s at the edge and she took the step

How do I bring her back help, help, help

Never a day goes by without a tear in my eye

Dad, I need some advice

 

The years have passed slow or it seems so

Questions unanswered, shadowed sunbeams

Just to talk even to silently walk

Dad…

What do you do when you don't know what to do?

Jul 28, 2020

Brilliant question asked by my colleague David Sollars. The question didn't make sense at first but it got me thinking - when I'm stuck on something, what do I do?

I don't remain stuck forever so I must do something that creates some psychological mobility.

I've realised I have 2 defaults - a healthy and an unhealthy option. My unhealthy option means I check my phone for news updates and my healthy option means I go outside for air.

I'm attempting to collate 100 options so...love to read your comments. What do you do when you don't know what to do?

Perspective - Use it or lose it

Jun 19, 2020
I'm fortunate and humbled to live in a beautiful part of the world and whenever I stand here and gaze it helps me get perspective - I'm humbled how small I am and how everything seems to fit in the right place.

Before I act - Is it the right thing to do?

Questioning my beliefs - Does it help or hinder?

When making a decision I get perspective using the 10-10-10 philosophy - How will I feel about it in 10 mins; 10 months; 10 years.

I was reminded by Newell Eaton about another perspective. Before making comment/judgement ask yourself
1) is it true
2) is it necessary
3) is it kind

Perspective - how do you get yours?

WFH or WFO

Jun 03, 2020

Maybe one day it will just be called working.

As we head into Covexit why would home or the office be the only locations worthy of a title?

I’m sure many of you have ‘worked’ from a random selection of places over the last few months.

Personally, I’ve ‘worked’ from these places over the last few months: The local café; on the bus to the city; in the car on the way home; my bed before sleep; whilst having dinner; the kitchen; the bedroom; the garden; the garage; and many more.

The WFH/WFO dilemma also provoked some random thoughts about other aspects of location.

Perhaps we should consider working from these places…

Working from your head, your heart, your gut or your soul

Working from within yourself, despite yourself or beyond yourself

On reflection I’ve also worked from a selfish perspective; a client perspective; a revenue perspective; a selfless perspective; an experimental perspective; a colleagues perspective; a sharing...
