The Evolution Of Michael Phelps

Life is never easy. Challenges, happen for all of us and the only question is if we allow them to take us off our game or use them as inspiration to find the good purpose in them.

This video is very well produced, inspiring and a reminder to keep going.

How Little We See

Check this out. This infographic shows how little of the ocean we see from the surface. I think this is a lot like life. What we see represents only a fraction of what is out there. When people argue over what is real and what is not, they are denying that they are most likely wrong!

Great Is In The Details


  1. Notably large in size.
  2. Remarkable in magnitude, degree, or effectiveness.
  3. Full of emotion.
  4. Chief or preeminent over others.
  5. Markedly superior in character or quality.
  6. Remarkably skilled.


  1. A small part of something.
  2. A particular fact or piece of information about something or someone.
  3. Any small section of a larger structure or whole considered as a unit.

It takes energy and dedication to focus on details and continue this over time. All great works of art, gold medals, moving design, music, financial and business success involves this same energy and dedication to details that most people consider boring and repetitive.

What great work will you engage in today?

Zone Learning


We all have at least one thing in common: we started life as a baby and grew into an adult!

Consider for a moment how we learnt as children. We touched everything, tasted everything, played with everything, asked questions about everything. All our senses were engaged in a process of discovering the world around us.

Then we went through formal education and learnt to sit still for hours. We learnt that the teacher expected certain answers, even if our experience of the world was different from the answer they were asking for. We learnt to fit in, be good and do as we were told.

Well some of us learnt these things!

Hyper-Speed Experiential Learning is all about including the whole person in the process and discovering the answers vs being told what is a right answer and what is a wrong answer. It’s about including all the senses in the experience and inspiring the student to think, feel and operate holistically and to include their; spiritual, mental, emotional and physical selves.

goldzone-experiential-learning-table-8-13-15The above diagram demonstrates what is possible in terms of retention of information based on the mode of learning. It is obvious to most people that the more actively engaged a student is and the more of themselves that are included in the experience the more they learn and the less they forget.

Let’s bring back the joy of learning!

At Goldzone Education, we believe that the world has changed so fast that traditional ways of teaching and learning are too slow and ineffective. People of all ages are immersed in high-definition movies, television, video games, giant monitors, instant messaging, smartphones and smart watches.

Our methods of teaching, delivering content and
learning have got to change with the times.

We need exciting content and teachers who inspire us to make changes, be the best we can be and to realize our full potential.

Every Goldzone program we deliver uses small group discussions, massive video screens, nightclub quality surround sound, laser lights, image reinforcement, captivating images, inspiring videos, the most beautiful smells and most important of all dynamic facilitation.

It is never boring!

Large corporations have the budgets to invest in one-off learning environments for their corporate training, however, few of them build purpose built classrooms on this scale. As for small and medium businesses, they are mostly out of reach. Our vision is to change that. We need better quality programs and learning environments for the hundreds of millions of small businesses around the world. think of the possible impact…

We also need to unlearn old ideas, thoughts and information that is no longer relevant. Read more about unlearning and “clean slate” > here.

If you are looking for a change and are ready for the most fun you can have as an adult in a crafted learning environment… check out the 3-Day GOLDZONE Experience. It will change your mind about learning, engage all your senses and most of all make you a better leader!

Everyone Needs a Coach

The world’s best actors, athletes, and business people have coaches. Most average and ordinary people see having a coach as unnecessary, expensive, and a waste of money.


If a coach could help you to double your income, isn’t that a good investment?

If a coach helps you to resolve a difficult business negotiation, and you save a multi-million dollar deal, isn’t that a good investment?

If a coach helps you to save your marriage from divorce, doesn’t that save half of your net worth? Sounds like a good investment to me!

Over the years, I have hired a lot of coaches to work with me, as well as to work with my colleagues and clients. There is a huge difference between coaches. You could sum that up as: If you want to be the best, hire the best coach!

Google’s Management Rules

In 2009 Google embarked on a project to analyze performance reviews, feedback surveys and nominations for top-manager awards to identify the top habits of the most successful Google managers… below are the results courtesy of the New York Times. It is interesting that #1 on the list is to be a good coach…




Past – Present – Future

It is amazing just how fast the future turns into the past. Take a moment and consider the present, and as soon as you focus on the present – it becomes the past.

Think about it. If the future is created in the present – and the future becomes the present at a certain point – which then immediately becomes the past…. if you spend all your time creating the future or living in the future, you will miss the magic of being present – here now. If you spend all your time reliving past glories, then you are missing the magic also.

The most powerful moment is right here, right now. Question is what you do with this present moment?

If you spend all your time enjoying the present, then you are not building or consciously creating your future.

So the best thing to do is to remember the past, live in the present, while creating and designing a better future… now that is an art!

“You can’t look the troops in the eye and say, “It’s been a bad year, we can’t do anything for you,” but then say, “By the way, we’re going to pay ourselves a $1 million bonus.”

H. Ross Perot (1930–), US entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and politician.

Referring to his resignation from the General Motors board following GM’s decision to freeze profit-sharing payments to workers while going ahead with executive bonus payments.
