What Will Your 2020 Be Made Of?

What Will Your 2020 Be Made Of?

A christmas tree made up of the words: You, fun, 2020, play, music, family, friends, success, relacation,yummy foods, great health, acknowledgement, love, love, lots of love.

Here's to a magical festive season. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Bhodi, Geeta Jayanti, Chrisnukkah or some other festive day, just know that I am wishing you the best.

2019 was an interesting year. So many good things happened. So many bizarre things happened. I achieved some of my goals, missed others and accomplished some things that were not even on my radar!!

So what does 2020 hold for you? What is it made of?

I created this poster for you. I wanted to share with you some of the things that will go into my 2020 and some of the things that could go into yours. Note that it is based on loads of love.

It feels to me like we need more love in the world. Love in the form of tolerance, respect, caring, generosity, hugs, hand holding, conversations, books, music, big picture thinking.

Governments and corporations don't seem to care or love their people or customers anymore.

So my theme for 2020 is MORE LOVE. I invite you to join me in my quest to make the world a better place by loving more: when I can, where I can and how I can.

Here is to an amazing 2020 for you.

With Love

Warwick xxx

Hope is Not Enough. Success needs Action

Hope Is Not Enough. Success Needs Action

It's been a hell of a week.

A good friend has lost one of his best friends (who simply didn't wake up), and then one of his daughters friends committed suicide. Someone close to me went into hospital for a few days and still needs more tests. Another friend got retrenched after 10 years working at the same company due to a "restructure". It seems like half of Australia is on fire and as a consequence, Koalas are in more danger of dying out. We are heading into Summer and most of Australia needs rain.

Don't even get me started on politics. No matter where you are in the world, it seems like either the wrong people are in power or that their focus is not on the people or issues that need it.

In my conversations with people, there is a lot of talk about Hope. Hope is something powerful. It is something that keeps you sane because you can look towards better days, better circumstance, a better life.

But Hope is not enough. Success need Action.

Now I don't mean financial success or material success (even though this is still true). What I mean is, however you define success. In terms of the country you want, the environment you want, the future you want, or more importantly, the NOW that you want.

What can you do? Is it:

  • Educate you kids, friends, family?
  • Use less plastic
  • Give more hugs
  • Plant more trees
  • Speak positively about others
  • Use a journal to deal with your feelings and concerns
  • Get a coach or a counsellor
  • Bake a meal for a friend
  • Invite a friend over for Netflix and Chill (however you interpret it)
  • Pick up a hobby
  • Write a letter to a politician
  • Be a tourist in your own town
  • Vote for the interest of the Future not for yourself

Whatever your concerns, whatever you HOPE, what can you do?
Thoughts and Prayers are nice but they are more to make you feel good than they are to solve a problem.

Dear-Reader what tangible action can you take that will bring your hope to life?

Are You Focussed On Your Target Market?

Are You Focussed on Your Target Market?

I love a well thought out piece of marketing in the right market. This Techbox is particularly awesome. 

Last week I was hosting COBA2019 trades how floor at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre and right outside the main doors was this Tech Box. If you look closer you will see Hi Vis Vests, Gaffer Tape, Power Boards (that have been tested and tagged), phone chargers, USB Adapters, thumb drives, extension cords... all the things you need at an expo but can often forget. All at a reasonable price (for the convenience). 

They know their market well, they know their price points well, and they are offering a fantastic service with low operating costs. There were also a few people at this Expo happily purchasing things from it!

How well do you know your target market and how well do you position your products and services?


PS The latest version of the Get More Success Show is out! 
This episode I talk with Mel Kettle on Stronger Connections (with and without technology)
We had a great chat so go check it out.

Have You Got Enough Security?

Have You Got Enough Security?

Police standing outside the Melbourne Convention and Entertainment Centre

A couple of weeks ago, I was walking past the Melbourne Convention and Entertainment Centre (or Jeff's Shed as it's known) and there was a melee in progress.

Horses, protesters, police and conference delegates were all in the fray. You can see some news coverage about it from SBS by clicking this link.

From my perspective, it did seem that both parties were too enthusiastic and unfortunate delegates got caught up in the cross fire. Some were pushed to the ground and others spat on by the protesters.

I am not deny the rights of the protesters to be there and I am not denying the right of the police to keep the peace. But what does need to be considered is the impact on the event.

While the event organisers considered their event a success (they were quoted by SBS as saying it was "business as usual for our 7,000 delegates") it definitely attracted some unwelcome attention for them.

Let's extrapolate that to your event.

You are after the Goldilocks level of security. Not too little, not too much but juuuust the right amount. As you can see in the video above (click the image for the 30 second video), the level of police presence is intimidating. But it did seem to match the intimidation of the protestors.

If you are running an event that may need security, how do you measure the Goldilocks Amount?

PS The Latest Edition of the Get More Success Show is out!
I had a brilliant chat with Yamini Naidu on the art of Story Telling.
She shared some fantastic tips. Click the link above or image below to hear it.

Life is Transient

Life is Transient (But it can still be awesome)

These are some stunning Mr Lincoln roses from our garden.

They look stunning. They smell magnificent. We have three bushes out the window (two Mr Lincolns and one Camp David - they are very Presidential!) and when the window is open the breeze wafts the joyful aroma through.

In a couple of weeks these flowers will be dead.

During their short life they have brought emotion and meaning to others. We have loved and appreciated them. Maybe someone walked past and saw them and smiled because of the one they love. Maybe they walked past and missed someone who used to be in their life who loved roses. Often our impact can be deep and unknown to us.

Sometimes the blooms last for a long time and sometimes they go well before their time due to hungry possums, disease or a mistake while pruning.

Our lives are like that of these roses.

Sometimes we bring joy just by being there but to others we may bring discomfort, through no ill will of our own. Sometimes our lives are shorter than we want and others times our inner strength sustains us.

It is important to enjoy life while you have it. Enjoy the interactions that come your way. Learn to recognise the short term inconveniences for what they are - short term. Adjust to live with the long term inconveniences.

Like a rose, sometimes you have manure spread around you (physical or symbolic) but understand it will make you stronger and while it may stink, you will end up smelling like roses.

How Do You Express Yourself?

How is Your Personal Expression?

Winston the Poodle running in circles

This is our dog, Winston the Wonder Poodle.

He will often show his happiness, excitement and delight by running around in a crazy manner, often referred to as Zoomies. We call them Circle Work. Click on the image above to see him in actions.

It is a way he expresses himself with no concern of what others think.

Whether he runs circles through the lounge, kitchen and entry way or does massive circles around the paddock when we are up at the shed, or this simple circle work up and down the couch, he is not ashamed to show how he feels.

We can get so hooked up on the negativity or the expectations and "shoulds" of the world that we sometimes forget to express how we feel. Then, if we do get the urge to show how we feel, we worry about "what will other people think."

Be like Winston.

Show the world how you are feeling through your words, actions and behaviours. There are so many fabulous things happening in our world that we can forget to enjoy them or show people how they make us feel. It's time for that to change.

How do you express yourself?


PS This episode of the Get More Success show we chat with Cathy Fyock about expressing yourself via a Book!
She is the Business Book Strategist and she has some easy to implement tips on how you can write your book quicker, easier and cheaper.

Beware the Power of Your Words

Beware the Power of your Words

Text Image "Saying Have a Nice Day to someone sounds nice. But saying Enjoy your next 24 hours sounds threatening"

Mark Twain said that the difference between the nearly right word and the right word is the difference between lightning and lightning-bug.

As you see from the image text, the framing of your words (even though they may be correct) also makes a huge difference.

All you need to do is visit the social media channel of your choice and you will see words being misused, misunderstood and mistaken.

Words can raise a person up to the greatest heights and can bring them crashing down just as easily.

There is power in words. Use your power wisely. Dear-Reader I implore you to use this power for good and not evil.
