Now that is a Greeting...

Fast Eddys Morley
It is a public holiday in Perth today... so my favourite week time coffee haunt for the 6am coffee, Redman Cucina is closed and I visit the local FastEddys.

On Saturday I discussed with the lovely young lady her progress on doing her "10,000 steps " The health of Australia is better for those on wrist counters. She told me that she was pulling a double shift today, and to check in with her on Sunday to see how she went.

Well, I have another "she who must be obeyed" and my Sunday coffee was at another place and I didn't get to check in.

When I asked her today how she was going... she said the most amazing thing.

"I am used to hearing people have stopped coming in because they have died. So that is what I thought when you weren't here yesterday"

Who believes in the 60 is the new 40... I have some work to do!!

[ With penalty rates for a pubic holiday my flat white was $4.60 - phew... ]

Nothing Stays the Same - 60 is the new 40

A friend of mine just shared with me:

Not sure if you know but Australia currently has the 3rd highest life expectancy behind Iceland and Japan. The first 2 because if the fish they eat. Because of this, Aussies have a lot more time in their hands

So, when I was much younger, my grandmother deied at 63... and what I can remember she died of old age. My mother passed at 56 from hard work, kidney problems from using too much Bex powder [remember - "have a bex and a lie down..." ]

And I know many people who have pushed passed 80 and enjoy radiant health and engaging lifestyles... Charlie next door, into his late 70's has just "bought a Jeep"

So my challenge to you is to put some time into 
Understanding the demographic changes that are changing the world.

Specifically, where are marketing dollars flowing and can you be in the middle. What services do aging baby boomers need? Is the world running out of clean water? Are newspapers going to survive? Etc. Etc. 

Read every day to understand what is going on. I am starting the #just17 movement to identify these changes and help the new wealthy group enjoy life to the full..

Perfect Coffee - Australia's gift to the World The Flat White

A good coffee has several components... the coffee, the milk, the barista and how hot it is...

Currently I am on a search for #theworldsbestcoffee and it is a near dead heat between Vivki at Jamocca, Noranda, Richard at Redman Cucina in Inglewood and Nespresso's Apreggio Purple, Bannister Milk and my delonghi machine.

If you have other suggestions let me know. [ Costas, the English coffee chain serves passable Flat White and through Hugh Jackman's advocacy, Starbucks have added flat white to their menus in the USA and UK.

Dr Wayne Dyer RIP

Dr Wayne Dyer RIP
I am not sure why I found the article this morning but I read that on August 29th 2015 Wayne Dyer "left his body". It was a great surprise as I had just listened to James Altucher interview Dr Dyer about his new book... I can see clearly now.
Along with Zig Ziglar, Denis Waitley and Napoleon Hill, the writings of Wayne Dyer played an important part of my life's journey.
If you haven't read Dr Dyer's work, books are available on Kindle for less than $2 a time... well worth the effort of visiting Amazon and grabbing a few.
