June 29th, 2012… Campaigners Breaking World Records!

Late in 2010, I gave a talk at a venue in Perth to a lovely group raising money for a fantastic charity. At the talk I spoke of all things 100 THINGS and mentioned how I once broke a Guinness World Record (Crushing the most amount of eggs with my big toes in 30 seconds!) […]

July 10th, 2012- The ‘Book Relay’ Begins…

Since releasing the ’100 Things Book’ on December 1st last year, the response has been just amazing. Regardless of sales or anything else numerical, I’ve been lucky to hear back from people all over the world sharing with me that the book has influenced them in positive way. A thousand stories of hope, courage and […]

August 2nd, 2012- Samson’s Saving Female Maasai!

It’s not often I start a day with a long-distance phone conversation to a Maasai Warrior in Kenya, but that’s how today started. Of course this particular Maasai goes by the name of Samson and is the same man who allowed me to stay with his tribe for a week so that I could tick […]

August 12th, 2012- City2Surf 100 Things Event- TICK!

With more and more people joining up as ‘Campaigners’ on the site and sharing their lists in our growing community, i’ve noticed that there are many people who share the same goals. Amongst goals to climb Machu Picchu in Peru, learning how to fly a plane and even writing a book, one common goal shared […]

May 21st, 2012… Regrets of a Dying Person

With the positivity that this journey has created for not only myself but other too, I’m lucky enough to see the goodness is people wherever I go. The funny thing is that even when I’m on my laptop getting some planning done (or whatever you may call it!), I occasionally get sent an email that […]

May 11th, 2012… Painting a Picture of Hope

Just 2 nights ago in New Zealand, I was asked to by a lovely Auckland-based company to attend the last day of their business convention and finish the day off by giving a presentation on the journey of 100 Things. These types of talks are fast becoming a fantastic tool to spread the positive message […]

May 7th, 2012… This is what it’s all about!

From memory, I’m led to believe that I’m based in Sydney. The reason I’m basing this statement on memory is that over the last 3 weeks I haven’t been anywhere near Sydney. Instead I’ve caught 12 flights to 3 different countries all in the name of either ticking items from the 100 Things list, giving […]

March 31st, 2012… Light at the End of the Tunnel for Mark Rostoks- a True Legend!

A man who I’ve spoken about a lot (I even wrote about him in my book) goes by the name of Mark Rostoks. Mark is a man who last year I helped to push in his wheelchair in the Melbourne half marathon. This was one of the first items from Mark’s ‘list’ (check out the […]

March 19th, 2012… 100 Things Campaigners Hitting the Headlines!

I remember the first time that I was ever asked to be interviewed about my list of 100 Things- I remember thinking ‘Why on earth would a newspaper want to write a story about me?‘. I’m just a normal bloke doing all the things on his to-do list! Surely that’s not news worthy? Never the […]

March 9th, 2012… J-Loc’s Death-Row Dream

One of the most moving items for me from the list was Number 12- Visit a Death-Row inmate. After googling ‘Death-Row Pen-Pals’, I was met with a catalogue of inmates who were searching for people to write to on the outside. Sifting through thousands of names, I eventually stopped on a guy called James (or […]
