This is a busy time of the year for everyone personally and in business. However learn from the picture above.
Unlike the jolly guy in the red suit above, always take your time, look out and be prepared mentally and physically for any unexpected events!
As the holiday season approaches like a jet plane!, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and those who have helped to shape our year and our business. It has been a fantastic year for us all at MindStore. We trust that 2014 has been just as memorable for you, your colleagues and your loved ones. We look forward to working with you in the years to come.
We wish you all the happiest of holiday seasons and good health throughout 2015.
Thank you for making the time to read this.
Best wishes for the holiday season to you all!
Damian and the team at MindStore Australia.

Forgive me if you have read this short Stress Management story before, but I felt it would be a timely reminder for a group of people that I met recently. Enjoy!
A lecturer, when explaining stress management to an audience, raised a glass of water and asked, “How heavy is this glass of water?” Answers called out ranged from 20g to 500g.
The lecturer replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long you try to hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you’ll have to call an ambulance.”
“In each case, it’s the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes,” he continued, “and that’s the way it is with stress management. If we carry all of our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won’t be able to carry on.”
“As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again. When we’re refreshed, we can carry on with the burden. So, whatever burdens you’re carrying now, let them down for a moment if you can. Relax. Life is short. Don’t pick them up again until after you’ve rested a while. They will then seem so much lighter.”
Here are some great ways of dealing with the burdens of life:
· Accept that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue.
· Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
· If you can’t be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
· You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.
· A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
