Lt. Col. Rob 'Waldo' Waldman was one of the keynote speakers at the recent Australian UBT Achievers Conference.

Here are some of his 'WingTips' for our lives and careers:


- Feed your mind with positive thoughts.

- Keep company with those who lift you up, not those who drag you down.

- Spend time with high achievers in different fields to your own. You will benefit from others' unique


- Mentor someone less experienced than you are. By lifting up another you build a stronger formation

  of partners.

- 'Tighten down your rivets'. At high speed, even a small rivet sticking up can cause enormous drag. It is

  another way of saying, 'Take care of your life away from the job.' Tend to your spiritual, emotional, family and

  physical needs and you'll fly faster through life!
