Branson or Buffet, Edison or Einstein; all these successful people shared a fetish when they first embarked on their journey…..

….. A fetish for PVC: Passion, Vision and Commitment.

They didn’t search for the meaning of life.

They searched for what made them come alive.

They all had a burning passion, a clear vision and were committed to realising that vision.

They all loved what they did – there was no difference between work and play.

They all had a dream.

They shared their dream.

They took action towards achieving that dream and played with whoever turned up, because they found that you get what you play for.

….. time to play?


We are most near our true selves when we achieve the seriousness of the child at play – Heraclitus

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing – George Bernard Shaw

I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me up and get going, rather than retreat – Sylvester Stallone

The day of the "go-getter" has passed. He has been supplanted by the "go-giver." – Napoleon Hill

10. Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it – Jim Trousdale
