One big, deep, nagging concern

Boba Fett Disney+ chapter list
Chapter 5 will be fun to watch tonight. Probably peacefully. Yet imagine living next to a Church that regularly hosts outdoor concerts. And the stage and speakers are pointed at your living room.

Huge opportunity regarding Lakeside Church operations.

It’s raining.

And cold.

Without the rain the plan is to meet Chuck at Church, drive to my home, and walk a mile back to Chuck’s car.

Two umbrellas will allow this to happen even in the rain.

Want to bless Chuck with an opportunity to experience how far away i am and still hear the Church business inside our home.

Over the years, the noise volume has grown louder, happens more frequently, and event durations last longer. As the Church grows, so too will these business outputs.

Any residential neighbor producing similar noise levels would immediately be asked to turn the noise down dramatically. Which begs the question then…

Is it true that no one is above the law?

Asked Chuck for a hug. We reassured each other that neither is angry. Reminded Chuck i’m here to help be part of the solution, offering my business insights and advisory experience.

Chuck made it crystal clear his mission is greater than any residential subdivision’s mission. And that he will do what he is legally able to do to get there.

He believes he is lawfully complying within his permitted codes.

The obvious challenge is without a shared public document in both our hands, neither of us knows the letter of the Church’s code requirements.

i wish us both nothing but the best intentions, the best outcomes, and a future so bright, we gotta wear shades.

Best Career therapy

i get to teach, i have to travel. i love to travel, i hate being gone.

Search for a job that allows you to get-to-do more than you have-to-do. Even if it’s marginal, 51% to 49%. This means your get-to-do has controlling say in the scripts you tell yourself.

Chronic career improvement

Our home is in this photo. It’s been delightful to watch Walt Disney World expand from one theme park, two hotels and a campground to what it is in this photo. Photo: Flying from Orlando airport to some distant city to do work that matters, or maybe to hike. Or both.

Chronic career improvement defines your future.

You shun the urgent to focus on the important, non-urgent.

Chronic work improvement also foreshadows your life’s quality in the final decades.

Decades.

One, two, or even three decades of great work habits compounding over time.

We appreciate your artistry. We respect your commitment to your art. Thank you for blessing others.

Do the basics brilliantly

Family room at Christmas
Windows and doors get opened on many (WDW) Christmas mornings, including today’s.

Leadership 101:

Do the basics brilliantly.

Be an example, not a warning.

Run your life like a great CEO.

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Live within your means…do work to make a contribution…let pay sustain you, not drive you.

Invest early and consistently between 20-30 years old.

Go the extra inch tradition

Hidden Mickey on Christmas Card
This hidden Mickey is progress. It’s on a Christmas card envelope received yesterday. It comes from a busy CEO. She went the extra inch in a tangible way.

Going the extra inch is a Disney tradition.

Every day.

All day.

Day after day.

Week after week.

Month after month.

Year after year.

For your entire career.

Outsiders, like the people i serve, can not comprehend nor conceptualize how to operationalize it (make it a cultural-wide habit).

The hidden Mickey in the lower right envelope corner is progress.

It was an unexpected and delightful wow-moment.

Insight: It also took nothing but considerate and intentional thought to draw the circles.
