But having said that, I do think that at this time of year it’s worth having a check in [...]

The power of thank you

After I taught a creativity course recently, one of the students invited me to her property on the South Coast of NSW to collect material for my art as a way of saying thank you because the course was transformational for her.

I can’t even tell you how much that meant to me as I [...]

How do we motivate ourselves to do the stuff we don’t want to do

You know when you have one of those weeks where you get knocked down, and get back up again, only to be knocked down again? Well that was me last week. You know, it was one of those weeks.

Get inspired by my TEDx talk

It’s so wonderful to reflect on experiences. Today two years ago I did a TEDx talk on a topic close to my heart – overcoming self-limiting beliefs and finding our spotlight moments.
