People don't often say, "I've got cancer" do they?
Some feel it’s information better kept to close friends and family.
Sometimes they're not ready to talk about it.
Or they're afraid that other people will act different towards them.
They think other people may not want to be near them.
Saying the words out loud makes the cancer feel more "real."
They don't want others to feel sorry for them or change how they treat them.
For many of you, we have had a connection that in some cases goes back 15 years or more. So, I could see real benefits to you (hang in there - I'll get back to this) if I levelled with you:
OK, you ready? . . . . I've got cancer.
There, I've said it.
Now, I know this is a touchy subject. Some folk have lost close friends and family members to cancer. So, it's pretty raw.
I completely understand if you quit reading now, delete this message or get off this post.
To most of us, cancer reminds us that every one of us is mortal. We link the word ‘cancer’ to the word ‘terminal’ and think about the end of life.

Frustrating isn't it!
We all get forgetful sometimes, (just ask my wife!).
But, have you noticed that you are forgetting more things these days.
An important client called you while you were under a house or discussing a plan with a co-worker and you forgot to call them back, when you said you would.
You've gone to Officeworks or your supplier with a mental list of seven things you need for the job and return to the job with only five of them.
Customers you used to do business with, are being forgotten or are drifting on to your competitor.
When was your last BAS due?
You've left it too late to order tickets for the show you promised your wife you'd take her to. You just forgot.
No, you are probably not in the early stages of dementia.
There is a problem though, isn't there.

What's on your
'stop doing' list?
Life is not a dress rehearsal,
in a kaleidoscope parade,
it’s a time of guts and thinking,
it is honour unafraid.
Life is not a dress rehearsal,
that fools and jesters crave;
it is helping, winning, serving,
it is finding better ways.
Life is not a dress rehearsal—
it’s opportunity and chance;
it is maker of the man,
not a thing of circumstance.
Men, have you ever wondered how women think?
So many businessmen I am coaching are saying:
"Paul, you really help me boost my local work without advertising,
but this other stuff to help with my relationship with my wife - you should start relationship counselling!
My wife and I have never been closer.
"Hmmm, should I write more on men in relationships? Click here:
A Life that Matters
Live a life that matters
Ready or not, someday it will come to an end.
All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else.
Your wealth, fame and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance.
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
Your grudges, resentments, frustrations and jealousies will finally disappear.
So too, your hopes, ambitions, plans and to-do lists will expire.
Do you ever take risks you know you shouldn't?
This old movie clip below is amazing.
Some wisdom from an old man
The old man was asked what surprised him about humanity.
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future, that he does not enjoy the present;
The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
He lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
