8 till 40 – Mind AND body.

One of the mistakes I’ve made coming up to 40 is the total disregard I’ve held for my body. I’ve gone out of my way to push my body to its limits and punished it. Perhaps worse is that I’ve hardly paid it any attention to the point of neglect. Part of that is the […]

9 till 40 – Together

We’re having a party today. It’s to celebrate Mrs K and I reaching 100. 40 years each on the planet and 20 years together. Today is about family and friends. Some can’t be here today which is a shame, but it accentuates in a way the fact that some of us can during these circumstances. […]

10 till 40 – Countdown

I’m on the countdown to 40 years old. It’s really the first birthday where I’ve felt apprehension and a bit of fear. “Wow, I’m starting to get old.” I’ve lived a very privileged life and I managed to make most of my physical and life threatening choices early on so it’s been a bit of […]

One Month On

It’s been just over a month since I packed up my car with the bear minimum of personal effects and set course for Adelaide. I ate up those 900km in a day and set up camp in an AirBnB in North Adelaide and raced around open houses and the various real estate agents cramming as […]

The Next Good Thing

In the last post I talked about how I was on the journey between the Rut, the Transition and the Good Thing. I didn’t actually talk about the good thing, and I guess it’s because I’m in the middle of a process that will take a good few months to finalise. So I don’t know […]

Things Change

Today I resigned my job and employer of more than 12 years. It’s the place where I started my career in education and the path that led me towards Ed-Tech and online learning. I’m grateful for the opportunities provided to me and I’m proud of the work that I contributed to. The last 12 months […]

Into India

So I’m off to India. I meant to post this yesterday when the media embargo was lifted but I went through a mad rush to pack and prepare. Last year there was a call to join a Young Entrepreneur Boot Camp supported by the New South Wales Government. I applied and was lucky to get […]

Not a Startup Guy, In a Startup World

A couple of years ago I got into startups. Not as a participant but as an observer. It was interesting to look at the systems at play in that space, to learn the dynamics and the culture and to try and interrogate how and why certain ideas seemed to dominate that world. It was definitely […]

Where am I going? What am I doing?

I have just a couple of weeks of long service leave to go. It’s been so good to have a break from work, without the threat of worrying where the next pay check is coming from. I’ve been working since I was 16 and during that time there have been a few stints of unemployment, […]
