but hey

 Don't fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have."

Forget past mistakes. Forget failures. Forget everything except what you are going to do now and do it."

The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have done, would have done and so it never got done

"Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you're not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were."

Motivation gets you started. 
Habit is what keeps you going."

"The only goal you can't accomplish is the one that you don't go after!"

Continuous effort--not strength or intelligence--is the key to unlocking your potential."

To waken interest and kindle enthusiasm is the sure way to teach easily and successfully.

The Road to Whakarae

"The Road to Whakarae" an awesome whanau kaupapa recently put together by Filmmakers Tim Worrall and Aaron Smart. Part of a new Loading Docs initiative established by the New Zealand Film Commission and NZ On Air. It was a perfect opportunity to create a small project that celebrated the lighthearted a softer side of being Tūhoe, in contrast to the standard media representations of Tuhoe as being aggressive and isolationist.  A golden opportunity to upskill and train a Waimana film crew camera ready for any future project. (click the four arrows - full screen)
