Working through the ego-driving forces that shape values, my partner and I have stepped out of the mud of the broken roadways and transportation systems that remain from the 300 year old Industrial Revolution into the cyber age, the online marketplace.  

Swimming is a regular morning routine. As the water reminds me I was or should be a dolphin, I notice a regular co-visitor. Mr. Zhou and his wife practice Chinese Yoga poolside, then he rolls out a few laps with me. He is a new Australian, migrating from his beloved life of teaching in his home town at the point of his retirement. At what cost?  

Small business normally operates at one end of the extreme spectrum. Until you have conducted a small business you don't understand what a 'struggle' is; just like a person who has always had enough to eat does not understand the meaning of hunger or desperation. If business is booming, the pressure of delivery, growth, physical stress of staying on top of things leaves many business owners in one of two situations; working too many hours without balance or so far removed from their business they don't see what to do next.  

We often tell ourselves we are working hard to achieve our goals, but the biggest lie we tell ourselves is that we are successfully living and performing to our potential. Our friends, staff, employers see straight through the picture we paint. Our body language, emotional engagement and personal lives speak louder than what we project.   But what if there was a faster, more effective way to be a high performing leader in ALL areas of your life, without overwhelms, exhaustion or compromise?  

The Gallup Organisation asked people what "the best possible future" for them would look like. We found that when evaluating their lives, people often give disproportionate weight to income and health: Across the groups we surveyed, "good health" and "wealth" were two of the most common responses. Perhaps this is because these things are easy to measure and track over time - we can monitor our height, weight, blood pressure, and household income. Yet we do not have a standard way to measure the quality of our careers or the health of our relationships.
