Goals that actually work? Base them on action

Posted by in Learning, Personal Development

“To achieve an outcome, you have to take action, and that action should be your goal. You can’t directly choose an outcome, but you can always choose to take action.” ~ Pete Michaud Ask anyone about how to get to success or a successful life and one of the first things they’ll say you have to do is to set goals. Everyone knows to set goals but we don’t do enough or the right ones so we’re not successful…. or we’re doing it wrong. I think we’re setting goals wrong. When…read more

Dune Boarding near Cape Reinga

Posted by in Travel

Back in Auckland from my whirlwind trip around New Zealand, I was thankful to have a day or 2 rest before hopping on the plane and heading home. I just had one more trip to do up to Cape Reinga, the top of New Zealand. Because of the way the bus schedule worked we would head up to Paihia the first day, do a day trip to the cape the second, and then have a day to relax on the third. I was expecting this part of the trip to…read more

Paying to Climb Into a Washing Machine

Posted by in Travel

That’s what it felt like. Like getting into a washing machine. After leaving Wellington and heading north we had a bit of time to look around in Rotorua. I wanted to try Zorbing. After watching some videos and hearing everyone talking about it, Zorbing was definitely something on the New Zealand to-do list.  I had gone through Rotorua on the way south but the weather was horrible so I decided to wait until I was going north. Out of a bus load of people, Russell and I wanted to go….read more

Running in the Windy City

Posted by in Travel

By that I mean Wellington. Because of it’s position and the weather in the area, Wellington is an incredibly windy city. I got to experience first hand what the wind was like on my last run there. I was only going to spend one night in Wellington because I wanted to get moving North and have a few extra days in Rotorua. I ended up washing everything in my backpack because of my own stupidity and needed an extra day for things to dry out. I haven’t run much in New…read more

Throwing Myself 134 Meters off the Nevis

Posted by in Travel

Somewhere along my trip I got the crazy idea to do a bungy jump. I didn’t really want to spend the money to do a skydive so I figured bungy jumping would be the next best thing. Little did I know that everyone thinks bungying is harder. You have to jump yourself. There are 3 bungies around Queenstown. We saw the first and original bungy at the Kawarau Bridge. It’s 43 meters high. On the way into town on the bus we stopped for a bit to watch a few…read more

Snowboarding in the Remarkables

Posted by in Travel

I took a day that I was in Queenstown to head up to one of the local mountains and carve up some snow. I couldn’t see a thing. There were three lifts. 2 of them went up a bit higher and the third stayed more central and lower on the mountain. I tried one of the higher lifts first and found that all I could see was white and the odd marker that showed the middle of the run. Just getting to the next marker was a bit of a…read more
