We often read about the need for us to love what we do and to follow our passion etc. In fact I even wrote about this in a previous post "Don't Forget to Thank the Fish".  I have been giving this a little more thought lately. 

For the last five years I have been deeply involved in the local rugby club as junior vice president and a coach.  I do a lot around the club as a volunteer as well, marking lines on the fields, working behind the bar, cleaning up etc.  In my 20s I was lucky enough to play grade rugby in Sydney.  I played in the 3rds and 4ths and was able to play a handful of games in 2nd grade.  I wanted to be in first grade, but I didn't want to make the commitment to training and practice that would have been required to do that.  I saw what was required and didn't have the intestinal fortitude to make that step.  I loved the game (and still do) but not enough to push myself to that level.  When I played Rugby was still an amateur sport.  I left rugby to play music - which I also loved.

If you haven't seen the movie "The Founder" I can recommend it if you are into movies about business. There is some great cinematography as well with wide open scenes of the vastness of the American Mid West, capturing the 1950s vibe. I really enjoyed the movie and refrained from saying beatlejuice 3 times as Michael Keaton plays the main protagonist Ray Kroc. 

The story tells us how McDonald's came to greatness. It is a great story and being a student of business it taught me a number of lessons.

I discovered the meaning of life in my mid twenties, at a party at Milson's Point while staring up at the Sydney Harbour Bridge. I was so excited about my discovery. I rushed to interrupt my "special" friend who was engaged in depth with another group of people. She wasn't nearly as excited as I was, telling me to go away as she was busy having fun...

One of my favourite books has a boring title Leadership and Self Deception. I try to read this book every year. It is one of those books that the more you read it the more you find out. As with a lot of books I read, the more experience I have the more understanding I have of the content of the book. The more understanding I have of the content, the better I am able to execute on the ideas in the book.  read more...
