Self doubt

It is not surprising in these difficult times for us to experience some periods of self-doubt. Uncertainty and fear about the present and the future can impact our confidence and ability to get the essential things done.

My work has exposed me to varying levels of self-doubt in recent months. Difficulties...

Bubbly water

Melbourne has some of the world's best drinking water, most of which is sourced from forested, protected catchments. Between the catchment reservoirs and the tap, there is some filtration and fluoridation, resulting in fresh, clean drinking water. The best you can drink.

I like to add bubbles to my drinking water,...

I'm a TV viewer, let me out of here.

Now that the summer sport is disappearing from our TVs, and the TV rating period is about to start, new episodes of the country's favourite reality shows are rolling out.  I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, Married at First Sight, Dancing with the Stars, Masterchef, and many more...

Media freeze

From midnight, Victoria will go into a five-day, stage four lockdown, in an attempt to control a coronavirus outbreak from hotel quarantine. Limiting people's movement in the community will give the contact tracing teams some time to catch all of the infected people and hopefully put an end to the...

I have been working with a well-known Mazda dealer on a sponsorship package for the Zoom-Zoom club. A sponsored partnership with a local Mazda dealer is a significant benefit for a motley crew of Mazda MX-5 owners like us.

To get a sponsorship deal over the line, you have to allow...

For the past two years, I have been fighting what I consider the good fight at work, brought in as an agent for change where change was desperately needed. And the good fight has produced some great results, including a team of highly functioning professionals, who deliver on what they...

You cook, I'll wash up

We have a rule in our household, whoever cooks dinner, doesn't have to do the dishes. I am sure this the practice in many families, but as I rarely cook, then I have become the chief dishwasher in our house.

Sometimes, the cook leaves an absolute mess for me to clean...

A winter's day in summer

Today was a Zoom-Zoom club drive day. For God's sake, it was the middle of summer, but it felt like the middle of winter on today's drive. This type of weather is not uncommon for summer in Melbourne. The temperature never got above 15 degrees Celcius and the drizzly rain...

Life stories

"There was never yet an uninteresting life. Such a thing is an impossibility.Inside of the dullest exteriors, there is a drama, a comedy, and a tragedy."  Mark Twain
