Check it out below! Just because it keep's me on my toes, and breaks the pattern in our communication (thanks Jen Jackson from Episode 22 for that insight), I've flipped this episode around and upside down. Let me know what you think. First, I want to tempt you with our upcoming guests. Our schedule is looking pretty impressive, so much so that I'm actually concerned that it might almost be too much growth fuelling goodness! We've got John Green, the European HSEQ Director from Laing O'Rourke coming on the show. John is probably best known for his public stand, and that of LoR's, against the idea of zero harm.

That means you shouldn't always like what I have to say, but need to know that it is absolutely focussed on helping you. If you are a passive consumer of information, and just enjoy the podcast for entertainment value, that makes me happy. But if you are seriously invested in your own growth, you'll feel pushed, compelled into discomfort and to take action based on the things we discuss today. Here we go: Brent died last week. Brent was a part of my families life, and he's left his family way earlier than a young man should. The details don't matter, and the core message of this video never anticipated Brent. In fact I wasn't actually going to do this video, but his death spurred me on, because it does speak to today's take away message, and I think Brent would approve. The phrase piss or get off the pot is quite crude, and may not be used in all parts of the world. It's about being on the toilet - do something or get
