WEEK 1 – OCTOBER 2008
Greetings this week from Port Douglas, which is north of Cairns. Have just flown in for a quick trip to the great land down under to enjoy some magic moments with my Dad. It has been a hectic few months on the road – from the UK to Europe a few times, to the Middle East, China and Japan, so I am very much going to enjoy a quiet, chill out week, recovering, relaxing and recharging! Sure to be great.
When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?
If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.
William S Burroughs
The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.

And here are a few words of wisdom from me!
Go away. Chill out. Energise yourself. No matter what your field of endeavour, a rested mind and body ensures a better performance.
Make time for you this week too. Rest, Relax and Recharge!
