Have we pushed out intellects to far? Is it stopping us from being happy? So, how’s the age of reason working out for you so far? I’m not going to try and tell you that the age of reason – our drive to be more rational, logical and scientific – has been all that bad. […]
The banks are hiking rates, as I predicted, but one of them went the bribe instead. Back in July, I was warning readers to get ready for rate hikes. And in the past few weeks, it happened. I’m not talking about the RBA hiking official rates. Nothing like that. (If you’ve been following what I’m […]
I’m starting to think there’s only one thing worth worrying about. What do you think? Is there a master key that unlocks all the secrets of success? There is. Energy. And I’m not talking like some Gaia-level cosmic energy or anything like that. I’m not asking you to sit with me in a tee-pee on […]

Somewhere this idea once served a purpose but the context it’s get’s used here in the west I find dangerous and destructive. Watch this and make sure you’re not ever thinking like this.
You have to bring a certain intensity to the journey, but it needs to be coming from the right place. “How much do you want it?” Apparently, this was a rhetorical question and “Not THIS much” was not the answer my Spin Cycle instructor was looking for. But although he probably didn’t realise it, my […]
If you think you’ve missed the boat in property, you’ve got to widen your view. “If only I’d bought 5 years ago.” How many times have I heard that? And true enough, if you bought in Sydney 5 years ago, then it is statistically likely that you made good money. But not guaranteed. Because I […]
