Pic of the Week
This week I got to do some affirmation flying with this legend. David is a ripper client of mine who invited me along for a training formation flying session. It's amazing that despite growing up on the Peninsula and having lived on the Westernport side for 10 years as a kid, I didn't truly understand what the bay really looked like until I saw it from the air this week.
It's magnificent! The colors and shades of blue-green are like one of those colored sand glass bottles. We truly live in a beautiful part of the world.
Ps. David has a serious look, because luckily for me, he takes his flying seriously.
Here are the top three things that have made a difference in my week.
They might also be useful for you, or not.
1) A fun day of adventure...
My good mate Ryan and I launched his dad's boat last Friday from Frankston for a day of boating and a sleepover on the bay before heading back Saturday. We stopped at Martha’s Table for a fancy lunch (amazing service), before heading to the Seal Colony, then out to the South Channel Fort for a tour around and a snorkel around the pier. Finishing that day with mooring the boat at Blairgowrie Marina, then dinner on the deck of the Yacht Club Bistro. The next day started well with a beautiful red sky. We forgot about this saying “Red sky in morning, sailor's warning.” and headed out into the bay heading home. We had a quick stop-in again at Martha's Cove for a morning coffee, and to our surprise, within 100m of heading back out of the Marina, we struck 2m waves. One of the waves turned our boat into a bath. We took that as a sign to turn around, call my son to come and pick us up so we could collect the trailer and trailer the boat home rather than risk turning the boat into a submarine. Love the adventure!
2) A great documentary I watched...
Many of you have watched Minimalism, a documentary about being happier with less. Well, Josh and Ryan have released a new film which explored the results of people using minimalism in their life. It's a great documentary that gets you thinking about what you really need, vs what you are sold you need. Highly recommend both documentaries for families to watch and have a conversation about. I personally have experienced going from less to MORE and it brought me no MORE happiness. It reminds me of that saying, “It’s the simple things…”.
Get less stuff and have more meaningful experiences.
3) AFantastic book I read...
There is nothing more essential to our health and wellbeing than breathing: take air in, let it out, repeat 25,000 times a day. Yet, as a species, humans have lost the ability to breathe correctly, with grave consequences. Journalist James Nestor travels the world to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it.
Highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to take their health to the next level. If you are eating well, exercising, filling your mind with good, and surrounding yourself with an environment that supports your performance the strategies in this book will enhance all of them. This book has action steps that are easy to apply in daily life. The good news breathing is free, you've always got your lungs with you, and air is recyclable. 100% worth a read.
Ps. There is a theme to this week. Connection through experience. I wonder if for you this week, you could spend more of your assets (Time, Money, and Energy) finding ways to have experiences that create more connection with people that matter.
P.s. The quote of the week is...
“Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.” John W. Gardner
I would love your feedback on what had an impact on you and the lesson in it, the moral of the story, or the learning you would share.
Have a ripper finish to your week.
