That time of year when you just want to pick up a few new books and make time to read.

Sometimes rigid habits can dominate the way we think about ourselves, our own leadership or achievements.
With a sense of playfulness a state of ‘creative flow’ can come over us if we can invite someone to be game, keeping an eye on one part of the goal (not losing sight) but also importantly getting lost in it, allowing the unconscious mind to take over.

This image was part of a bigger theme we discussed with a group of young leaders @eventaid recently.
They were a real joy to work with on the day.

The human aspect of an athlete can often go missing within a tapestry of themes that lie within the larger context of Sport itself.

I was able to sit down recently and weave through some of these themes with Shane Perkins @perkoperkins

It is only when we look back we begin to appreciate what really mattered, when we begin to separate the daily distraction of life from what has real meaning.

A wonderful experience this past weekend exploring movement in all its awkward realness . In gratitude for those that made it possible. @strongcamps @yuenjon @majesticmirth

What happens when you bring people together, many of whom haven't known each other for very long, some meeting for the first time that very night and explore ideas in and around movement?
We thought we would explore this notion during our workshop on Monday night with @trentsuratman . And many thanks to every participant for their positive engaging energy and grace.

It is often the simple things in life that teach us something about the big things. We just need to slow down and lower our own voice enough so that we can hear the lesson.

Podcast version of my conversation with @trentsuratman (see link in bio)

In this episode we understand what Martial Arts represents to him and the value that comes from diversity and tolerance.

Every mother is a legend in my mind, but some like Kellie Tait remind us how precious life is, when dealing with the challenges of an autistic child.

I sat down with her recently to learn more about her work, raising much needed funds to enable all children in her local town to enjoy the benefits of organised sport.

He would measure a man and take the measure of a man at the same time - Gay Talese

A flashback to 2012 where I worked closely with horses and they worked closely with me.

Monkey See Monkey Do.

This clip goes someway to explaining what happens when two people are tuned into each other on many different levels, and how that mutual respect and sensitivity can influence momentum and progress.
This boy is a joy to work with because of the foundation stones of good character laid out by his family.

At its purest level good training and a good life are the same thing.
