Stop bitchin'

I flew into Melbourne on Friday afternoon, after spending more than a month, hiring people in Atlanta and taking the business to the next level. As the plane landed, I couldn't help but reminisce about the things that I love about Australia.

Melbourne is a city that has grown on me. I have lived here for most of the past 10 years and it really has been the perfect home away from home. As a Queenslander, it took some time to get use to the weather, and talking about it all day long, but other than that, I have learnt to appreciate the finer things that make Melbourne and Sydney for that matter, so special.

As the plane landed, the first thing that came to mind is that I needed to get a coffee from my favourite barista. Secondly, how easy it is to walk through customs with the new technology that alleviates all the queuing that takes place in every other airport in the world. 

Having spent so much of this year in Atlanta and the US as a whole, it strikes me that I have been "bitching" too much. 

"No good coffee."

"Too many diner style restaurants."

"Business people are too aggressive."

"Everyone's homes look the same - boring."
