Autopilot strengthens work habits and rituals

Disney Podcasts
Jody Maberry texted this small tweak yesterday.
Disney Podcasts
The question now is, “Which “i” has it?

You can’t solve your work problems challenges tomorrow when you are on autopilot; repeating what you did yesterday.

Talking about your career health right now, as CEO of You, Inc.

But.

Autopilot.

Gets.

In.

The.

Way.

When you look at where you’ve been and compare that to where you are now, changing your work habits and rituals has changed everything.

Not only are you CEO of You, Inc, but you are also CEO of Mid Life Celebration, LLC.

There’s merit in working for a great company. And even greater merit for using that as a stepping stone to captain your own ship.

Life opens up to you in indescribable ways.

It’s strenuous and risky work.

So is playing it safe when you work for someone else.

Unconventional is the new higher education

Vail weather
Just 24 hours ago. Right now it’s 19.

While walking around the Westin yesterday after lunch.

 

Unconventional is the new higher education.

To know is to do.

To know and not do, is to not yet know.

First thing i did upon entering Dorian’s car was apologize.

He didn’t deserve my impatience 30 minutes prior.

PS. Had requested verification for who would pick me up at the airport, but didn’t double check. Pretty sure it wasn’t going to be Dorian.

Why should i have to double check? i’m not someone’s parent. In hindsight, becoming “parental” would have paid dividends.

Good list from Disney Institute. i am moving away from this offering. Why? Too emotionally draining, even though the financial reward is awesome.

Fear is relentless

Zappos school of wow
Stumbled upon this yesterday. My work ethic tells me to attend to benchmark. What will i miss (fear) if i don’t attend?

 

Fear (sometimes disguised as doubt or procrastination) is relentless.

The best weapon against fear is a strong work ethic.

Where would we be without failure?

Apple Pay enhancement
This Apple Pay enhancement yesterday may not work brilliantly.

 

Where would we be without failure?

Failure (and the fear of failure) gives you a wonderful opportunity to learn and try again differently.

Failure also means you are moving forward.

Note: There are rare times and places for inaction – it usually involves our primitive instinct for flight or fight – when our physical safety is in question – and we freeze (we don’t move, or act).

Sometimes, we stay frozen – unable to move (no decision and no action).

When we choose not to decide, we still have made a choice.

Here’s the competitive advantage though for taking action:

  • Fear of failing frightens people who care less than you do.
  • Use “caring more” to propel you to action, and possible failure.
