Dont fail before you startIt’s easy to come up with a range of excuses before you start taking action towards a goal.

If-my-kids-canI have three wonderful kids and Christmas is an awesome time to be a dad.

To witness their smiles and laughter on Christmas morning is a wonderful experience.

So what do I want for my kids this Christmas?

Not expensive presents, although we want to bless our kids with nice things.

Not an abundance of gifts, with too many to choose from.

Not the latest, coolest gadgets.

I just want them to have enough.

Is-there-something-thatTrains are considered by some to be a wonderful, iconic, romantic form of transport (unless of course, they are packed with commuters on a stinking hot summer day in Melbourne, but I digress).

The-two-most-importantMark Twain once said, “The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.”

You’ve been born already, so that one’s done, but what about the other day?

Do you know why you were born?

“The urge to create is equally strong in all children. Boys and girls. It’s imagination that counts.
