Having just heard the news of Nelson Mandela’s passing, I cannot help but reflect on the amazing impact this one man has had during his lifetime.
What captivates me most is the story of a dream, and determination for a better future.
He was able to overcome obstacles, having served 27 years (of a life sentence) then to be released in 1990, to become the first black South African President by 1994.
The legacy of Nelson Mandela, to me, will always beg the question – what do I do next?
Make your time count… Impact the world!

New anti-bikie laws have been introduced to combat the growing violence between gangs, particularly on the Gold Coast.
Just to point out how some rules can be a little over the top, aside from the likes of the Ulysses Club being potential targets, any affiliated group of bike riders with logos or insignia could fall foul…
Now for a little bit of humour shared with me recently:
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at Government House.
One is from Cabramatta, another is from Marrickville, and the third is from Lane Cove.
