Perthonal­i­ties share best ad­vice from their dads

Pinjarra Murray Times - - FRONT PAGE -

WITH Fa­ther’s Day just around the cor­ner, Perthonal­i­ties share the best ad­vice they re­ceived from their dad.

WA Premier Mark McGowan

Dad taught me to al­ways try my hard­est and never give up. In some ways, it wasn’t the ad­vice he gave me but the fact I love him so much made me want to do things to make him proud.

WA Police Force Com­mis­sioner Chris Daw­son

“You are the prod­uct of your pri­or­i­ties” is the best ad­vice that my fa­ther passed on. How I ap­proach, and what ef­fort and fo­cus I give to my fam­ily life, val­ues, faith, health, pro­fes­sional ca­reer, re­la­tion­ships and pri­vate in­ter­ests will de­ter­mine and in­flu­ence the re­sults.

Fiona Stan­ley Hospi­tal sur­geon and re­searcher Fiona Wood

To make sure you get the ed­u­ca­tion that gives you the choice to get up in the morn­ing and en­joy what you do.

Com­mu­nity News chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul EteenBliss

My brother and I cringed when Dad sug­gested we join the lo­cal Scout troop. I can hon­estly say dur­ing those early years of my life, I learnt an in­cred­i­ble ar­ray of skills, many of which I still use to­day: fire light­ing, first aid, nu­tri­tion, lead­er­ship and much more. This ad­vice re­ally did set us up well for life.

Singer Sa­man­tha Jade

My dad’s ad­vice has al­ways been to never ever give up. When my mum was sick, it was re­ally hard to not give up and we only pulled through that sit­u­a­tion because of Dad and his re­silience. He truly be­lieves that pos­i­tiv­ity is so strong and I be­lieve that too.

Il­lus­tra­tor, writer and film maker Shaun Tan

As an ar­chi­tect, my dad was more about show­ing than telling, so that’s tacit ad­vice in it­self. Two things he al­ways showed: well­made things last for a re­ally long time, and al­ways fin­ish what you start.
