Responsible for what?

I like many have grappled with the notion of being responsible for where I am in my life or who I am in any particular situation. I have been amused by the abstract concept that if I happened to be walking below a high rise building and a sheet of glass fell from the building… Read More »

You Are Courageous Already!

From time to time I hear people say something like “I’m not courageous” or “I’m afraid” and so I’m reminded of the phrase that “Courage is the action taken in the presence of fear”.  From the inside looking out I can say that just about everyone else looks more courageous than myself and there are… Read More »

I posted on Twitter and Facebook with this photo: “My Definition of Success! BBQ on back veranda, with my gorgeous wife, of a house the market said we couldn’t have!” I married Donna 2 years ago  and we purchased our house about 17 months ago (Oct 2016), in the Sydney market with the bare minimum,… Read More »

They say, “You did… Read More »

Maybe, you enjoy it, maybe you enjoy being dominated by unwanted mail, demanding mail and enjoy forever organising mail.  If, like me, you are an everyday victim of mail then my escape may… Read More »

Our House – Our Invention

What a superb house. We love this house! It’s been a year since we exchanged contracts. Donna has her grandchildren visit, I have my office on the end. ❤️ It is deceptively understated and delivers on all of our needs. We imagined it, we made one last visit to an open house on a long… Read More »

Using Pomodoro’s – 25 Minutes to Post

I read an article by Chris Winfield posted in Medium Daily Digest – “How to Work 40 Hours in 16.7“.  His article Chris examines the use of Pomodoro’s and refers to a 2006 paper written by its creator, Francesco Cirilio, which explained the technique and the psychology behind it. The Pomodoro Principles: Work with time, not against it,… Read More »
