A singular focus – the act of personal bests, repeated

As the Olympics wrap up for 2016 and the sports mad nation of Australia contemplates our successes and misses in Rio I am reminded of one of our great athletes, Ian Thorpe. As a 3x per week swimmer for 20 or so years, I know a little bit about the black line. About early mornings, and hours and hours that … Read More

Synergy – when one plus one equals one thousand

No amount of examination of a poisonous gas, Chloride, or an explosive metal, Sodium, would ever have anyone believe that when the two are mixed together in nature we get a harmless white powder that we sprinkle on food. Yet the marriage of Sodium and Chloride creates salt. This is synergy in action. Dissection down to the cellular level, of … Read More

After a wonderful rich conversation with Cindy Wigglesworth today on the subject of her life work, Spiritual Intelligence, she defines spiritual as the innate human need to be connected with something larger than self.
