Must Do, Must See, Must Taste…

While in Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch is a place of contradictions. It is a rowdy university town, crawling with barefoot students en route to a lecture hall or bar; a town of Mystic Boers, enlightened gypsies, hausfrau 4x4 owners and mentors; a town of conservative reformed churchgoers, liberal freethinkers, rugby players and poets.

Wow, how fast did 2009 fly by? I'm not sure if it could be considered a full year! We should be in 2009 and a half, not 2010.

I heard an interesting theory once. Actually it came from Shane Leite's dad, Bill. He suggests that every year feels shorter because it actually IS shorter when compared to the rest of your life.

Ask any successful entrepreneur their secret to success and they'll tell you their secret lies in setting smart objectives and taking action. To get from where we are today to where we want to be in the future, we need a plan. Failing to plan is planning to fail.

We all have more capacity than we believe we do. It doesn't matter what your objectives are, but rather your desire to reach it. Whether your smart goal is financial, personal or business, following these 10 steps will magnify your success.

The human body has been designed to move regularly, but modern technology has unfortunately made it more convenient for people to remain inactive and has turned many of us into couch potatoes. Scientific evidence, especially since the 1970's, has shown that the body responds positively to physical activity. There are many benefits, including for the cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory and endocrine systems. Some of the health benefits are reduced risks of coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, colon cancer, type 2 diabetes and premature mortality.

“Perfection is one dimensional and is death to all things creative. Perfection only exists in chocolate.”

So says Dawn Marie Price, an amazing United States-based entrepreneur from Vacuum Systems International Inc. About the chocolate, I'm with her 100%. The first bit got me thinking.

A Paradigm Shift

There has been a paradigm shift in how heart disease and other chronic ailments will be treated. Surgeons are coming to grips with the truth about how heart disease is created.

My wife and I arrived in Adelaide via Johannesburg and Cape Town in March. We wanted a quality of life of ‘working to live' as opposed to ‘living to work' as things had become in South Africa.

I knew what we were getting ourselves in for by moving to Adelaide as I had been out previously on a recce and was pleasantly surprised by how similar it was to Cape Town.

The pace of life is sedate – I couldn't understand why everyone was walking so slowly until I realised that I was walking too fast! The standard of living, compared to other Australian cities, was exactly what we were looking for.

In between finding work, moving accommodation three times and unpacking our shipping container, we have been amazed at the wide spectrum of things that one is able to do here.

We came to Australia with a ‘it's-what-you-make-of-it' attitude and we certainly are going to be doing our best to achieve just that. You only have one life, live it!

If you're going away during the holidays, remember to book kennels or a pet minder well in advance. Places fill up fast at this time of year. Ensure vaccinations are up to date. Many quality kennels and catteries will require them to be done at least two weeks prior to their visit.

If travelling with your pet, there's a brilliant new non-drowsy motion sickness tablet available. Speak to your vet to arrange a prescription.

Must Do, Must See, Must Taste…While in Franschhoek

May and June are good months of the year to visit. It's off season, there are winter packages available with affordable stayovers, and visitors have the opportunity to do Franschhoek the way the locals do.

South African military history has always held my interest. It comes as no surprise because four generations of my family served in the military and various wars and I have 22 sets of family medals in my collection. Even after spending over 30 years in Australia, I am as keen as ever on the subject, and have recently written three books, two of which are about the Boer War.
