Are you paid more than you earn?

I know a lot of frustrated, miserable people in their 40’s – men mostly, who appear to be successful. They have money, position and all the stuff that goes along with those but they carry with them an undercurrent of anxiety and emptiness that manifests in things like poor health, nervousness or frequent exhaustion.  Of…

Your problem is you think you have time

Like is full of paradoxes. We’re told to treat every day as our last and live in the moment but on the other, “There’s no time like the present; time waits for no man.”   So let me explain what I mean and why it’s so important to recognise the threat behind those fateful words –…

The Subtle Trap of Lifestyle Purchases

Australia is one of the wealthiest nations on earth. Our standard of living truly reflects the maxim, ‘The Lucky Country’. So it’s easy to justify the way we indulge ourselves in material pleasures. We’re huge consumers.  I’ve always loved toys. Motorbikes, cars, four-wheel-drives, audio gear, photography gear, camping gear, gadgets – all of them! I…

The Male Midlife Crisis

OK, we all know that middle age can be stressful and that left untreated, it can kill you. But what sorts of things are we stressing about?   And more importantly, what can we do about them? If we don’t approach this phase of our lives the right way, we can easily descend into a downward…

Who’s Stealing from You?

It’s incredible how busy we all are. Even six-year-olds are busy.   My 81-year-old dad is busy. Every time someone asks me how I am, I say, “Busy!” I guess my dad’s version of busy is different to mine (his is 90% fun). But I’m wondering how the rest of us got to be so…

How to Pay Less for the Car You Want

People are judgemental creatures. Meet someone for the first time and chances are they’ll look you up and down and in an instant, decide where you sit on their own personal pecking order. Don’t smirk – you do it too.  It happens in the office, at school pickup, and on the golf course. It’s visible…

The Era of the Fake Expert

Everyone’s an expert today. In relationships, business, marketing or investing, there’s a cast of thousands that’ll tell you what to do.  One of them is a guy I’ve known for 20 years. Let’s call him Phil. Hell of a nice bloke. But every time I see him, he tries to teach me something, like the…

The Seasons of Life

When I was 10 years old, I knew I could be anything. My imagination ranged free and wild, unfettered by the harsh realities of what was to come.  My mum and dad had already lived through difficult times and operated from an entirely different perspective to mine. Likewise today, in their 70s and 80s, they…

The Myth of Success

The Myth of Success

Most of us are trained to believe success is inexorably linked to the attainment of goals. But this kind of success isn’t enjoyed for long because that moment of attainment is fleeting.  We reach a goal and then it’s over the very instant it’s reached. Failure to replace the goal with a new one then…
