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…

How do you want to die?

You’re flat on your back under a fluorescent light that flickers on and off. Either side are machines that monitor your vital signs through a dozen different wires and alternating beeps. Clothed in a gown that rides up uncomfortably and encased in stiff cotton sheets, you’re surrounded by family and friends who stare awkwardly about…

Why giving is selfish (and why you should do more of it)

One cold July evening back in 1994, I was seated in the warmth and grandeur of Sydney’s State Theatre, having travelled almost 900kms by road to hear some of the top personal development speakers from around the world. One of them was a caricature of a man called Charlie Tremendous Jones.  He was, by any…

Who’s Stealing from You?

It’s incredible how busy we all are. Even six-year-olds are busy. My 80-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 busy….

Success Without Health is Failure

Not long ago, I realised I was going to die. I didn’t know when, exactly, but I was sure it would be soon. Australian entrepreneur Kerry Packer’s male antecedents had a history of coronary problems, and many died young.  He was no exception and succumbed at age 68 while still one of the wealthiest men…

Money and Kids

Let’s talk about children. Children can be expensive. Entitled, demanding, spoiled children are a massive liability – first to you as their parent and later, to themselves when they have to pay their own way.  The wrong habits, if allowed to blossom, last a long time. Perhaps, even a lifetime. I’ve heard the complaints –…
