Timothy’s Thought for Thursday

Parenting is just like leadership, it’s best done by being a positive role model. Your children will learn from you mostly through your example. Making sure you walk your talk is the best way to create a culture where the children’s character and behavior are shaped for adulthood. The same applies to your culture at work. The core leadership should embody the principles they want to see consistently in their team. This needs to be done at the office and home for integrity and trust to endure.

Timothy’s Thought for Thursday

On November 27 to December 5, 2014, an extraordinary event takes place in the Bahamas at Deans Blue Hole, Long Island. The world’s best freedivers are coming to compete in the annualVertical Blue competition facilitated by William and Brittany Trubridge, testing their ability to dive deep. William, like myself, is a New Zealander, who lives and trains on Long Island. He is a 15 time Freediving World Record holder and attempted to break his own world record of 101 meters. How is it possible that a human being can achieve such feats of performance?

Focus for the week: Recently I made an appointment at a car dealership to get some small but important things taken care of. They assured me that all would be sorted within the hour so I decided to wait and take the opportunity to read and study. The hour went by and I enquired how it was going and was reassured that they had started and it would be out soon. Engrossed in my book I looked at the clock and now it had been 2 hours and I had to be at the dentist in 30 mins across town. I asked them if they had completed the job or if I should get a taxi.

By | Timothy's Thought for Thursday | No Comments

The Winter Olympics is well under way, captivating nations around the world and uniting them together in the arena of sport. What is it that fascinates people about sport?

Or is it something more, the uncertainty of the performance and the thrill of the journey to find out who will beat the rest. The truth is that performing and watching sport fulfills many of our human needs that are hard wired into us as human beings allowing us to have peak experiences which we all seek.
