Is International Women’s Day being dumbed down?

Hi everyone just a quick note to update you on a couple of things…. Firstly, I’m a bit angry at the moment because I feel like International Women’s Day is being dumbed down. Have you noticed? I’ve written more about it over at my new personal blog – here’s the link. And there’s an excerpt […]

Why the bad boys of business need to be pulled into line

You may have been following the storm in the teacup that has been brewing as a result of litigation involving ANZ Bank, strip clubs and certain (allegedly) badly behaved traders who it turns out are paid more than their Bank’s CEO. In case you missed it, here’s a snippit. In response, ANZ, Westpac and Commonwealth […]

Help wanted: Gender balanced investors to quiz Directors on the gender agenda

Do you invest in shares? Would you use your vote to demand that companies you invest in act now to capitalize on the opportunity women present? If so, I want to hear from you. (And if not, you should and you can!) As a shareholder, I attended the Fairfax Media annual general meeting in Sydney […]

What men really want, and how they “have it all”

Are you following @manwhohasitall on twitter? I’ve concluded this satirical (and scarily familiar) account of “top tips for men juggling a successful career and fatherhood” could only be authored by a woman. The basis of my assumption? Career men wouldn’t think about spending time on social media sharing the ins and outs of their work […]

Women become more visible in Cabinet reshuffle… but why did it take so long?

Is it just me, or is anyone else wondering “where were all these women a week ago??”  Amazing isn’t it what you can find sometimes, when you put your mind to it and really go looking? Just goes to show that, sometimes, all it takes is a leader willing to back those who have talent […]

Juggling your family life and work life – is it different for women and men?

A friend of mine recently shared that his female boss had – in a team meeting – commended the men on her team for leaning in on the home and family fronts.  It was in response to an article quoting Elizabeth Broderick, Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner who had received a text message from her son […]

What a little ripper! You know I'm sure we've all been as excited as this 11-year-old dynamo about something in our lives. But how to keep the momentum? Love this. What's your "donut"?! (Mine? My puppies and ponies.... together when possible!) ... See MoreSee Less

11-year-old Australian surfing star Sabre is one of my favorite people I met this year, and she’s about to be one of yours.

Raw. Real. Remembering just some of the magical talent that departed our realm last year.

Music is such a gift, it lightens our load and brings such joy, and how lucky are we to experience all of these fantabulous artists in our lifetime??

Of course their memories will live on in their songs that I'll certainly continue to belt out ad infinitum (karaoke tribute night anyone?!)

Thanks Keith Urban for a moving musical tribute. Fair dinkum mate, it's a ripper...

I spent the day working with these kids and oh my dog they sure make me smile :-) The baby long ears have been in training ready for the move to their forever homes. They’re nearly there now and it’s sure going to be hard to part with them this time.

The human on the other hand will not be sold ☺

These days sure make a nice change from my professional work and give me some good headspace for creating new content that I plan to incorporate into keynotes and workshops this year. And they remind me of the times I spent at work with my dad on the land. During the school holidays and weekends we'd go fox hunting or rabbit trapping or I'd go to work with him in the pine forests where he harvested the tall timber.

I loved those times so much, and when Dad died two years ago it brought great peace thinking back to all those countless hours we spent together. It gave me a feeling that there was no unfinished business, that we’d had our time together.

Maybe one day my own offspring will look back with a smile at the adventures we get up to together. I can only hope.

For those of you with kids, not sure how you’re handling the childcare challenges that school holidays present. Anyone taking their kids to work with them too? Or maybe you’ve farmed them off to grandparents?

Either way, hope you’re all staying (relatively) sane and having some memorable adventures of your own.

I’m sure that one of the very few advantages of ageing is an increasing acceptance that not everything is within your control. So you learn to focus your energy on the things you can control, and accept some of the things you can’t. I believe they call this grace.

Accepting that you can’t control something doesn’t mean you have to like it. It just means you accept that it is what it is. And you are where you are. And there’s something about the wisdom of the years that makes this somewhat easier to manage.

I believe this is true even when you really want a different outcome. When you are very clear on what you want but just can’t have it right now. And when the things that matter most to you are taken away, sometimes through no fault of your own.

Six days ago my loyal, trusty friend TJ the beagle toddled off down the drive on an excellent adventure. At the farm. Where he loved to be. And he hasn’t been seen since.

I assume that he’s somewhere out there on the 1,200 acres that comprise our property, or somewhere nearby. And given he’s old and in poor health and it was stupidly hot and humid when he left, I’m pretty sure I’ll never see him alive again. Not because I don’t want to, but simply because the laws of probability are stacked against us. And because finding a small grey and tan and white dog on a property like ours is like finding a needle in a haystack.

I’ll continue to look for him every day and call out and hope that I’m wrong, because I really want to have one more day in the office with him lying by my desk. One more cuddle. One more walk.

If you’re so inclined, please wish upon a star tonight that my little buddy will find his way home. It’s surely not impossible.

But in case it doesn’t happen, I will accept it was his right to have one final run in the fields that he loved. And that’s how I’ll always remember him.
