I Was Inspired By Their Work Ethic

Over Christmas I was fortunate enough to stay at the Quamby Estate near Launceston in Tasmania.  The Quamby Estate also houses the base of the Cradle Huts group, who arrange treks through the Cradle Mountain region. Part of the attraction is that the trek group stays in private huts with hot showers, private rooms, and prepared meals.   Cushy trekking!

The guides we had were brothers Linton Tuleja and Harley Tuleja.   Linton and Harley carried the biggest packs, supervised the group, shared information on flora and fauna, history and waterholes, encouraged the walkers, provided first aid, provided snacks, cooked the evening meal, baked bread, laid out breakfast, did the dishes, swept the floor, scrubbed the showers, cleaned the toilets, never once complained. Their work ethic was amazing and inspirational.

Over the years, I’ve worked for, with or managed hundreds of workers, many of them quite good.   Yet only a few really stand out in my memory as super-consistent in their demeanor AND their contribution, and how easy I found them to deal with during my time with them – Helen Pilati, Michael Butlin, Linda Tyler, Grant Palmer, Ian Johnstone, Robert Best, Javed.    Linton and Harley  just about topped everything I’ve seen.

When I get tired and want to put things off, I glance at a new note that I’ve made that simply says, “Work Ethic”.   Linton and Harley  – thank you.

Leo Russell Sports

Last week I flew down to good old Melbourne town for one day. The cool weather was a refreshing change from the constant summer humidity in Brisbane.   I had an hour to fill in so I used it to go shopping. To one shop.

Out at West Preston is the best old-fashioned shop I know. Leo Russell Sports.   They sell nothing but Asics sports shoes and significantly cheaper than retail stores, and Leo Russell stocks a larger range.   However, over the past few years iit seems there are forces who don’t like Leo Russell from selling below recommended retail price.

For those who like to support the underdog, support 75 years of community service and get super-great discounts with an old-fashioned touch, I recommend Leo Russell Sports. 24 Gilbert Road, West Preston. (03) 9484 1343. Cash only!

And if you need to post them to your friends in Brisbane, or anywhere else, the post office is across the road.

While you’re getting discounts, don’t forget you can get free copies of Think and Grow Rich, and, The Richest Man in Babylon from my other website…
