Silence is the enemy – speak up!

Speak up when you need to – only you will know when is the right time to speak up, but it is something you consciously need to do.

Too many people stand around and assume someone else will do it. What the world needs is for more people like you to step up and speak out.

“There was a job that anybody could do. Everybody thought that somebody {else} would do it: in the end, nobody did.”


It’s good to be back! I have missed my (ir)regular blog posts, but felt now it’s time to look ahead to see what’s in store for 2014. 2014 will be a year of more & less!

  • To do more for others (I sucked at this in 2013)
  • I will open up my home to more visitors, friends and family
  • Spend more time with my family
  • Go on more motorcycle rides with my buddies
  • Be present more
  • More reading
  • More trips away with family & friends
  • To treat myself to good sleep every night
  • Less stuff – a week’s holiday where most of what I brought was in 1 box has made me realise even I have too much ‘stuff’ – it’ll be time to declutter in 2014
  • Less time on those who don’t matter

Now, for some specific goals in 2014 (in no particular order):

  1. Adopt a rescue dog
  2. Run a marathon
  3. Get rid of stuff
  4. Go on an overseas trip (Spain, most likely!)
  5. Take the boys on a boys-only camping trip (anyone wish to join us?)
  6. Have people over on at least 12 occasions this year
  7. Get away with my wife for at least a week without the boys

I am sure I will add more to the list as time goes by 🙂
