You Are Leaving Signs

You Are Leaving Signs



On the way to my personal trainer this morning (yes I have a personal trainer and he hurts me!) I saw this number plate on a courier truck.

Thaaaaat's not a good sign.

I mean, would you hire a courier who hates their job? Can you imagine how they may throw delicate packages around? How much care do you think they would have with what they are doing?

I am most likely jumping to conclusions. Maybe they bought this number plate thinking it was a good joke. Maybe they don't work and this is a truck they drive around in their retirement. Maybe they have a long term contract and don't really care what the rest of the world thinks.

There are any number of reasons to explain this number plate. What is important is that they have left a sign. A sign that will influence how they are perceived.

You do the same thing every day. How you dress, how you interact with others, how you treat the barista at the coffee shop, comments you make to your friends on the phone that other people overhear, the jokes you tell and even how you treat animals.

You leave signs that people will use to assess whether they want to deal with you or not.

I am not saying that you have to be perfect, it is way too hard. But I am saying that it is worth considering what signs you are leaving and what signs you want to leave and adjusting your actions accordingly.

So Dear-Reader, what signs are you leaving?


PS My guest on the latest edition of the Get More Success show is Tania de Jong AM. She has left many amazing signs. During our chat she talks about how she shares her love of music and in the process, improves the life of many and has created several charities to increase her reach.

Put Your Poo in the Post

Put Your Poo in the Post



Bowel Cancer is the second deadliest cancer in Australia. Approximately 80 people a week die from it.

That is shitty to say the least!

June is Bowel Cancer Awareness month and Bowel Cancer Australia are doing great things to help for the early detection and treatment of bowel cancer.

The great news is that bowel cancer is one of the most treatable cancers if detected early. The even better news is that when you turn 50, the Australian Government sends you a free kit for Bowel Cancer Screening. In theory, it shouldn't be an issue.

That's where people come in!

One study shows that less than 46% of people returned the kit (less than 44% for men!) A more recent study has that down to just 41% (39% for men - what is it with us men!)

Here is my theory, the first kit arrives when you turn 50. No one likes to be reminded they are getting older. A female friend of mine had her kit arrive on her actual 50th birthday. She was annoyed so put the kit in the cupboard - out of sight, out of mind.

Also, people don't like talking about poo. It is ok if you are travelling as you can go on endlessly about the different toilets, plumbing set ups and the gastro which meant you were not getting off the toilet for a few days. But people don't want to talk about their own poo, whether they call it poo, poop, shit, faeces or doody.

So you know who is the best person to encourage the poo conversation? A five year old!

They will play with it, bathe with it, run with it, show it to you, take pictures of it ... you name it, they will do it.

So let me be serious for a second, if you are older than 50 or know someone that it, can I encourage you to Put Your Poo in the Post?

Get a test kit from Bowel Cancer Australia, go to the toilet, channel your inner 5 year old, poke your poo with a stick, and then put your poo in the post. You could very well save your own life.

Dear-Reader you are too important to those around you to postpone this because you are too embarrassed, too busy (it takes less time than it takes to make a coffee) or too scared to poke your poo with a stick. Check the video below for a bit more information.

At the very least you get to send your poo to someone. Haven't you always wanted to Put Your Poo in the Post?
