Number 48- Act in a Play- TICK!

The Bow

(Full Video @ Bottom of Page) Backstage My two days as part of the Cirque du Soleil cast has left my mind racing. The image of me bowing, in character, to an applauding audience at the finale is something that I will never forget. I am humbled and privileged to have been invited as a […]

Number 18- Hit a Hole in One… 6,901 shots and counting!

I stand here on the second tee at Balgowlah golf club, armed with a bucket of balls and a lone golf club. As I stare towards the beautifully mown green, some 96 metres in front of me, I acknowledge a lone checkered flag erected high into the sky by a thin pole that sits comfortably […]

Number 66- Treacherous Trek…. TICK!

What an unbelievable 7 days I’ve just experienced. When you think about the Kokoda Track, vivid images of brave Australian soldiers, steep muddy hills, thick jungle canopies and local Fuzzy Wuzzy aid, spring to mind. Is this though what made last week so amazing? Yes, in part, but for me it was the personal journey […]

Number 4- Raise $100,000 for Camp Quality- TICK!

At the beginning of the 100 Things journey I decided that I wanted to raise money for a charity and so it quickly found it’s way in the form of an item onto my list. The embarrassing truth was that I’d never donated to a charity before hand and I simply wanted to change this! […]

Number 84- Face a Shane Warne ‘Over’- TICK

Is there a cricket fan in the world who hasn’t at one stage dreamt of facing a ball from Shane Warne; arguably the best bowler to have ever played the game of cricket? Probably not. Like all these people, I too have always wanted to face ‘Warney’ and that’s why it sits at Number 84 […]

The Swim…. A female competitor breaks down in tears directly in front of me as together we nervously wade into the water at Port Macquarie just minutes away from the starters gun. Ahead of us; a 3.8km swim, a 180km bike ride and finally a 42.2km run. This is the Ironman. Months of training have […]

The Theory Behind The Blank List Items When I initially created my list, there were a few spots that I left blank. My thinking was that as I travelled I would stumble upon new experiences that I could then add accordingly. This happened for a few items (Number 27- Minister a Wedding) but with the […]

Number 34- Kiss a Celebrity TICK!

Number 34- Celebrity Kiss- TICK! (this is the pic that featured in the Daily Telegraph newspaper the next day!)

I’m a big believer in ‘flow’; the idea that if in your quest to live a fulfilling life you leave yourself open to influences out of your own control, things tend to fall into place. This is what happened today. After being booked to speak at the ‘National Radio Conference’ at the Sydney Convention Centre […]

Number 62- Live on the Street for 1 Week

Screen Shot 2013-05-20 at 5.28.33 PM

The Challenge: Typically, we all know where we’re sleeping each night of the week. The concern for food stretches no further than choosing what to pick out of our fridge or what to buy at supermarket. The warmth of a bedroom is a given, as is a hot shower and privacy. In a very literal […]

Number 74- Make a Crazy Bid

Screen-shot-2012-09-24-at-5.25.49-PM

“Do I hear $500?” yells the auctioneer as a man standing next to him on stage parades another peculiar sale item at St Vincent de Paul’s annual CEO Sleep-out auction. An enthusiastic bidder sitting somewhere in the middle of the crowd quickly flashes his hand into the air like a fish momentarily surfacing for oxygen […]
