Zen Habits (one of my fave bloggers) Best ideas for "Creating an Amazing 2015' My number 1 "Create habits, not goals or resolutions. Resolutions are like wishful thinking, that fade away inevitably as the year’s newness wears off. Goals are great, but it’s hard to juggle 5-10 new goals when you have a lot of other things always going on. Instead, focus on one new habit at a time, and give it your full attention, until it becomes automatic. Then do another new habit. After a year, you could have 12 new habits, and you’ll be a lot closer to any goals you might have wanted to reach." via http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/post/893684/4009924229
With every new year, comes renewed optimism. And while I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions that you’re just going to toss aside when things get busy, I am a fan of creating new habits. This year, I’m offering to help you create 12 new habits for 2015....

Peter Greste: Egypt frees and deports Australian Al Jazeera journalist
Australian journalist Peter Greste has been deported from Egypt after 400 days behind bars, and is believed to be on his way home to Australia. There were reports Greste was in good health when he boarded an initial flight from Egypt to Larnaca in Cyprus overnight, accompanied by one of his brothers.

Greste’s family confirmed his release from jail in a statement posted on social media. His brother Andrew Greste said the family was ecstatic and called for the world to respect his brother’s privacy and to give him time to appreciate his freedom.

The family will hold a press conference in Brisbane later this morning :: Read the full article :: http://is.gd/EVVfXz

In another recent case, Kanarev acted for a real estate agent who managed a block of flats. One tenant, who the agent suspected owned a cat in breach of the lease, refused an inspection, then took out an intervention order against him, falsely claiming he was stalking her. The agent was not allowed within 200 metres of her flat, making his job of managing the other flats impossible. The order was eventually overturned, but he had to make several trips to court.

Introduction

My time is filled with making other folks land softly, easing their days, so they’re able to enjoy their evenings: I Like To Worry! I’m overtly fond of driven people, like the energy. My client list is diverse, an English Brain Scientist, a Hotelier on the up, a PR firm and a half dozen special individuals. As well, I run online campaigns for several brands, throw my fifty cents in for Unruly Media, take the odd casual editorial.

…what I like most about my world? The anonymity, I like that others get the kudos.

[confession] I’ve been blogging since before Blogger belonged to Google, if your the – I need a – date type: 1999!

On a personal note: I have an extremely soft-spot for strong, committed, motivated and driven, passionate people - I realise I've repeated myself - however, I have an absolute loathing for the ill mannered, disingenuous, lethargic and egotistic. 

My like of soft speakers, the intelligent and thoughtful often leaves gaping holes in my circle of buddies, luckily I'm also super comfortable with my own company.

My like of the passionate extends to the frills of life, music, motion pictures, dance and art. I like Chunky Move, Modern Australian Art, Poppy French Films and Music that isn't out of the box (like: Meow Meow) I also love - clearly - the written word, Patrick Süskind, Dave Cullen, Camus, Kafka and John Steinbeck top my book list.

I have an intense dislike for the colour purple, have no huge interest in watching sport, though I quite enjoy playing. Prefer red wine over white, very rarely drink beer, I am most definitely attracted to the opposite sex, believe that beauty lays someplace in the mind and adore feet sinking into salty wet sand.

So if you ARE extremely talented, driven and well mannered, feel free to connect....
