THE LIFE BOSS
Much of the world demands that we chase riches and status to be relevant. While not all such pursuits are wrong, being lured into doing so, without first establishing core life foundations and one's purpose, will, more often than not, lead to trouble. Ask me how I know! In my early married life, I fell for this trap, resulting in life being suddenly and forcibly stripped right back to zero. About the same time, resultant challenges with marriage, mental health, as well as cancer in the family also threatened to derail further what initially seemed like a perfect start. In my desperate effort to restore normality to my family and me, I read, watched and listened to just about everything I could get my hands on, and discovered the power of habits.
Through The Life Boss, I hope to be able to help others learn from my mistakes and share sustainable principles, techniques, and tools that have helped me to regain control and continue to strive for a better, more meaningful and integrated existence. If you're expecting this blog to be about getting ridiculously rich, neverending holidays, Ferraris and dream mansions, prepare yourself for disappointment. It ain't that. It's all about how to reclaim and own your life - one day at a time.
A BIT ABOUT ME
I'm a Christian, husband to Teena, and father to Trent (17), Tyler (15), Trinity (12) and Hayley (10). For my day job, I am part of a team that helps the University of Adelaide plan and make good decisions about its technology investments. I moonlight as a blogger, and food taster for Teena, as well as help her run our catering and Chinatown tour business. Serving in my church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) as a lay-minister also forms a big part of my life.
My passion lies in discovering the science behind forming good life habits into a foundation for a meaningful and integrated life; my way of saying 'life-balance.'
We often hear that true learning culminates in teaching what's learnt to others. Life Boss is partly to fulfill that aspect of my lifelong learning journey. I would be honored to have you join me.
