After the Crash!

Melbourne Grand PrixIt was the Melbourne Grand Prix here yesterday. A day of noise, colour, excitement, people and crashes. Many crashes. Many expensive, jaw crunching, bowel clenching crashes.

Warwick do you think that the driver would say, "Well that's it. I can't race anymore"? I doubt it.

I suspect the whole team will ask, "What did we do wrong? What can we do better or different? What can we learn from this?"

That sounds like a winning thing to do. Why then as individuals do we make mistakes and then think we can NEVER do that thing again? Or berate ourselves so much over minor incidents?

Let's learn from the pro's and ask ourselves:

What did I do wrong?
What can I do better or different?
What can I learn from this?

Then get back in the drivers seat, buckle up and have another go.

Top 10 Tips for Life

This came across my desk today. It has a strong message that I think is important. It says it in a way that is funny but real. I can't find picture credits, so if it is yours let me know and I am happy to acknowledge your mighty fine work.

So here are the Top Ten Tips for Life

1 Stay out of trouble that you can easily avoid

2 No matter how high you go, you can always aim for greater heights

3 What ever you are doing, maintain your focus

4 We all get busy, but you need to find time for exercise to maintain your health

5 You are not alone in the world so practice teamwork because you can't do everything.

6 Trust your partner to watch your back. Being able to trust is as important as having someone to trust

7 You never know when the rainy day will hit. You need to make sure you put a little aside to give you protection.

8 Take time to rest. You will need to restore your energy for all of your adventures.

9 Always remember to smile. You may find yourself in a strange position with strange people and a smile will always help.

10 No matter what anyone says, nothing is impossible!!

Get Moving!

I got some great feedback from this weeks Get More Goer and I wanted to share it with you. By the way, if you haven't signed up for the Get More Goer, visit and sign up!

Among some of the feedback was a link from Denise Owen from St John of God Health Care. She referred me to the Get The World Moving website I strongly encourage you to check it out and maybe even get a team going in your office.

The other good bit of news is that I have started some video tips on my YouTube channel. Slowly but surely I will be adding to "The Adventures of the Get More Guy". You can check it out at

You can also see the commercial I did for a toothpick while dressed up as a cowboy and where I sang on stage at Hamer Hall with Josh Groban as part of his Awake Tour.

Have a great weekend and let me know if you want anything specific address in the Adventures series.

Warm regards
