Food for Thought #5 - Is the system Rigged?

Food for Thought #5 - Is the system Rigged?

November 1, 2019

All this climate change activist stuff and the government response to it seems off to me. Why would the government, local or national, care if people protest? Outside of violent protest, I can’t see the issue. Outside of the obvious, why would any government care if a group believe in a world that is ending as a result of lack of action on the part of the government? The world is ever more on fire and this is less and less to do with climate. It is to do with the general unrest in society. The unbalance we all face and the mouse in the maze feeling we all seem be feeling. Whether you know it or not, you are being puppeted by something or someone. Which reminds me! Put that fucking phone down and learn how to navigate the world on your own! The dumb box will not save you. It is designed to control you.

So I was short an interview. This stuff is hard! Getting people. Finding people. But then I thought to myself, I get asked a lot of questions as to why I am doing this. So I though, after 9 episodes, that I would do a bit of a Q&A based off the questions I get asked around this podcast. Hope you enjoy a crazy man interviewing himself.

Food for Thought #4 - Cheating as a way of life

Food for Thought #4 - Cheating as a way of life

October 25, 2019

It would seem that path we all want to achieve in life is one that often feels so far out of reach. This looks like financial security on the outset and the ability to achieve this requires learning quite a lot about the way the world works. Specifically around work, money, life balance, love and time. How ever once you learn the basics you need to then gain a level of mastery of each in order to take advantage of each stream to generate that road to the dreams you have. If any one or all of them fall apart it’s basically a restart or at least quite a few steps back in order to go forward again. But even if you get it all right, there is still a chance that you may not jump up into that next level with out further sacrifice or even cheating.

It’s not often you get the chance to sit down with someone and find out what makes them get up and do what they do each day. But in todays podcast we get a chance to do just that. In speaking with Scott Forrester I was not only able to get to know more about someone I’ve spend many of hours with, but I also got an insight into a fellow human. I got to see what was motivating a friend to run a start up, work with top talent and genuinely seek to make a difference in peoples, businesses and his family life.

Today I got a chance to catch up with a long time friend, boss, colleague and generally cool guy name Sean Cookson. I’ve known Sean for 15 years or more and over that time we have had many unique engagements. We have worked together a few times, he has been an advisor to me and at times a great mentor. If he is not there in one of those archetypes, he has just been a great human to go cycling with and share a joke or two. Or to simply have a laugh about life and all the things that go in it.

I have raised that I’ve not been inspired by many people but the truth of the matter is, that Sean does inspire me. His life has a pattern that resonates with me. He seems to represent a trajectory that makes sense to me. In speaking with him I was again left thinking abut my life and how I am approaching what I am doing and how I could make a few tweaks to get a bit more from what I am looking to get done in this human hustle.

I found myself reminiscing while consuming memories on my facebook feed while I was on the toilet today. It’s where I find myself every morning. Checking in and see what I was up to in the years past. Memories are a funny thing. Mainly because time is a constant and no matter what you are doing, while you do it, it becomes a memory. It’s a wonder we keep track of anything! By I am sidetracked here.

Today I had the pleasure of catching up with an old friend. I say this because it is rare in my life get the chance to meet someone who is willing to be open and honest with me. Kiah Hickson was thrown into the world of Joe when I was working in a start up that made start ups. She was an outsider to the group but also brought in with the utmost backing and support because she is a bonafide bad ass. If she is not doing a mashup of tech and fashion, learning how to be a practitioner in a new field, chasing the next tech bubble or asking herself how she got herself into all this, she is simply looking for herself and how best to be her. So I hope you enjoy my conversation/catch up with Kiah.

September 27, 2019

I never thought I would get pulled into the vortex of someone else’s political views. I’ve been immune for so many years now that I thought my own biases would get in the way and the outer shell that I have built up would just protect anything from invading my psyche. However, in the last 12 months there has been this noise. Something that was initially just “interesting” has now become a headline fore me. A face that kept creeping in. A voice that made sense to me. Someone who exhibited more emotional prowess than the everyday human. Someone who challenged me to take pause and think. The scary part is that I know it is something that I’ve been middle of the road with for so long now. Climate change. Now you may think that my analogy is about Mother Earth. In a weird way it is, but not for the reasons that you may think.

Today I got the chance to interview a colleague and friend of mine Jamie Hayman. I’ve known Jamie for a few years as a coworker. In that time I have seen him get after and do many things and it was always interesting to me to watch his sheer passion for just getting after something. If it wasn’t starting to play Ice Hockey, it was starting a new business. If it wasn’t starting a new business it was enthusiasm for a new idea. If Jamie was intrigued and wanted to get in to it, he simply did.

One other interesting aspect of who Jamie is to me is his want and desire to make things. I’ve not told him this, but I am quite impressed by the fact that instead of simply getting a dorky hat as the game MVP hand out, he crafted this bear claw, viking like helm, from scratch. That, he learns how to build a water septic system so that he can treat grey water and devises a plan and exhausts all options in his pursuit of solving a problem. He sees no obstacles and on the outset, looks just about crazy to the non-inducted.

Today I volunteered at Sydney Streetlevel Mission in Surrey Hills. I was not actually in a mental place to do this when I arrived but I was setting myself up prior from a mindset perspective. I wanted to ensure that I was open and mentally available to be part of the experience. What ever it was. The specific part of the experience being that of the conversations I would inevitably have and the tasks or work I would be doing. It was part of a corporate volunteering initiative put on by a coworker and tbh I was initially 50/50 on what the day would hold. I have work on right? Things to be done.
