Welcome to Itch. My name’s Luke, I’m 32 years old, and I’m from Australia. I’ve spent my life with an insatiable curiosity, an ‘itch’ if you will, and a need to understand more. This podcast is born of that curiosity, my love of story telling, a desire to seek alternative perspectives, view life through a lense of grey, rather than black and white, and continue on my path to seeking authenticity. I take you on a short journey of my past or recent experiences, discuss situations encountered and lessons learned, and provide an opportunity for the you, the listener, to think about this in your own life, with the hope to gain some new insight for yourselves and see if it can add any value to your everyday.

    Gratitude is a practice, not just an attitude

    Gratitude is a practice, not just an attitude

    In today's lesson, I offer my timely reminder on a practice so many of us know, and yet, I am sure, so little of us truly hold ourselves to account to. Gratitude - as I have learnt, is more than an attitude, and it requires discipline and daily practice to truly reap its benefits. In this episode, I talk about my most recent challenges, my timely reminder and a step by step guide to implement this simple practice that is quite literally changing my world.

    Chase progress, not perfection

    Chase progress, not perfection

    In today’s episode, I explore a lesson that I use to call myself into account even until today. This unrealistic concept of perfection. 

    Whether it is what you expect of the world, your relationships or just of yourself, we can all find ourselves seeking out this state of ‘perfection’ in our day to day. 

    I found that by giving up this concept and rather connecting firmly with a state of ‘progress’, my world becomes more fluid, more flexible, more achievable and ultimately, more fulfilling.

    Respect that everyone’s path is their own

    Respect that everyone’s path is their own

    In today’s episode, I share my lesson in the power of respecting everyone’s pathway; even when that pathway may challenge, oppose or simply seem a distant reality from your own. 

    In what can be an extremely polarised world, this lesson helps me to bring empathy into action and humbly remind myself of the beauty in diversity and the need to lean in to those around you, or kindly step away, even when it’s most difficult.

    Be a great team mate

    Be a great team mate

    In this week’s lesson, I tackle a relationship challenge head on and look at the times when we find ourselves in battle with those we love the most.

    Whether it is your loved one or your actual team mate, this lesson helps to clear the clouds of doubt and anger when you reach for your sword and walk to the arena; asking yourself is being right worth it, or will I lose a team mate?

    Business is Personal

    Business is Personal

    In today’s episode, I look at a recent conversation I had with a friend of mine, and explore a lesson that was formed from the affects of the age-old saying “it’s nothing personal, it’s just business”.

    In a world where work and business is becoming even more personal than ever before, I find that we too often allow for this 'cultural norm' to corrode our deepest desires for meaning and belonging in what we do. I explore how work is the same as a relationship, and how we can take a moment to self reflect on our own needs and desires, and whether we continue this reality or change it.

    Seek Joy, above all else

    Seek Joy, above all else

    This three letter word has become an integral part of my life’s compass. But it can also be misunderstood as simple pleasure. In today’s episode, I take a look at this idea of Joy, what it means to me and how I have chosen to adopt it as one of my motivating factors in seeking out progress in the everyday.
