Every choice you make shapes your future. Sometimes people seem to have an inordinate amount of luck on their side, but what you don’t see are the tiny incremental decisions they’ve made that have inched them towards success. By being the best person you can be in the smaller moments, you’re preparing yourself for impromptu opportunities that are bound to come your way eventually. 
Despite the choices you’ve made in the past, a new day brings with it a new chance to become the person you’ve always wanted to be. Even if that new day is a Monday! Wake up fifteen minutes earlier. Try to listen more than you talk. Walk to work. Sign up for night classes rather than binging that Netflix series. Next time you’re in a queue, instead of scanning your Facebook feed, strike up a conversation with the person in front of you. 
What are some other small habits you could take on to shift the trajectory of your fate?

Stop, collaborate and listen. Recently, our Parramatta team dedicated a day to the theme of "collaboration". They held business development sessions and consultants from varying specialties gathered to identify new opportunities that arose from working together. As they say, no man is an island.

R U OK? 
If someone’s doing it tough, they may be afraid to tell you. Sometimes it’s up to us to check if someone is struggling by asking if they're ok. We get so caught up in our busy lives it’s important to take a moment to step back and look around us. By being there for others we can help them feel supported and connected at a time when they may need it more than we realise. You don’t have to be an expert. Sometimes all we need is for someone to listen. So, if you notice someone around you who might be having a tough time, why not ask them how they’re doing? #ruok

Are you a creature of comfort? You might want to get out of those metaphorical (and literal) slippers and step into some hard yakka boots (so to speak). A  recent Yale study demonstrated that stability actually shuts down your brain’s learning centres. So if you’re not stepping outside of your comfort zone, you’re not learning. 
Sign up for tango lessons, change your routine, volunteer to take on a role at work that scares you, listen empathically to someone whose opinions differ from yours, bungee jump! What are some ways you could step out of your comfort zone? Read the full article at www.inc.com #lifehacks #comfort #success #development
A huge happy birthday to Taki, our Marketing Magician at Ignite. What better way to celebrate your day of birth than to gorge on a gigantic white chocolate and berry cheesecake. Charoúmena genéthlia to you @takikonstan 👏👏👏🎈🎈🎈🎁🎁
Did you know that 90% of Australian organisations faced some form of cyber security compromise in 2016? Or, that extreme weather events and natural disasters are the only major risks greater than cyber attacks, according to the World Economic Forum?
Trendier than a fidget spinner (according to Google Trends), cyber security is the topic on everyone’s lips. Alas, the reason it’s such a hot topic is because its demand is skyrocketing while our ability to prepare for cyber crime is increasingly in doubt. The result of which could be catastrophic.
Australians lost approximately 64 million dollars in 2017 due to cyber crime. In 2016 the cost of cyber crime to the Australian economy was estimated to be one billion dollars. A major survey found that around 18% of small-to-medium businesses were impacted by a cyber incident. Yet only 37% of them had cyber insurance cover.
Cyber security is real, it’s scary and it does not discriminate. So, besides investing in a bunker and a thousand cans of baked beans with which to fill it, what exactly can we do about the skills shortage? 
Thankfully, there are steps we can all take to prepare for the potential hazards of cyber crime.
Read our latest blog to hear what the experts suggest we do about it. #cybersecurity #cybercrime #hackers #futureofowork #STEM

I have been blessed to be surrounded by such dedicated, hardworking, loyal, extraordinary people. We’ve come a long way in the time I’ve been here and we have a long and exciting journey ahead of us.
