Few care enough to fight

Just a moment in time. A different angle.
Mulan toy at Pre's rock
While not difficult to get to, it is definitely off the beaten path.

Few care enough to fight.

Few know the joy and exhilaration (and the risk, doubt, and fear) from fighting for something you are passionate about.

Personal leadership as CEO of You, Inc

The juxtaposition between Glacier and Sanibel is remarkable.

Same planet.

Same Country.

Remarkably different landscapes.

Same with Family members.

Same blood.

Remarkably different personalities.

Some are inspiring.

Some illicit fear from unpredictability.

As CEO of You, Inc, always bring the best version of yourself to every encounter.

May the Universe send you everything good your way this holiday season.

Beware the well-worn paths

Epcot’s Voices of Liberty, in red, are holding their microphones in the hand corresponding with their place on stage. No one knows nor cares, except Disney. And me.

Beware the well-worn paths.

They never lead to breakthroughs.

Beware the dark, shadowy paths too.

The dark paths are the ones that eventually lead to breakthroughs, but on the journey much, if not everything, can be lost.

Learn to be a risk taker the same way you learn to save and invest money – slowly and a little bit at a time, over time.

The magic of compound interest for financial growth, sprinkled with faith, in the historically highest return, is stocks.

Non-financial and non-threatening, but uncomfortable risks using confidence, these investments will pay the highest “confidence” dividends over time.

Please go recognize someone else

2019 Disney Cast Service Awards night at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Theme Park.

If you are not willing to be wrong you’ll never come up with anything original.

By wrong, don’t think of stupid errors like not adequately recognizing your direct reports, boss, peers, and vendors for their strengths.

By wrong, think in terms of business risks that free you to try things that may not work.

Like walking away from your biggest business deal ever, if you feel the business is blind to their biggest organizational vibrancy opportunity.

Do you understand your Next + ?

You can not afford to slip in a place like this. Worrying about slipping kept me away for decades. Not anymore. Photo: Mt Reynolds.

Do you understand your Next + ?

So your Next is your big, multi-year goal/vision. It’s as big a goal or vision as you can ever dream up.

Super-hero big.

My first Next, at age 50, was a 10-year vision to do everything in life i wanted to do if i only lived to my 60th birthday.

Now, at 60, there’s a new Next.

It’s a three-year Next, taking me to my 63rd birthday.

The + is a wild card, diamond in the rough kind of karma.

It’s an accentuated risk taking commitment.

It’s a burn the ships commitment.

It is helping me process a potentially lucrative contract against the work-focus that will be required.

With only 2.5 years left in this Next, a lucrative deal has to be something that happens in the next few days and something that signals to me that the CEO is burning the ships.

The potential to transform a company and the industry they service is intoxicating.

But, and this is a huge but (no pun intended), 99% CEO commitment won’t work.
