Be prepared to do great work

Sidekick Jack and sword. Well prepared for whatever may need to be done.

Be prepared to do great work.

Would a sabbatical provide an opportunity to do more important and more joyful work?

Gut says, yes.

Initiative

Last summer was an experiment in working together inside Glacier National Park. This summer will be a continuation highlighted by lessons learned and the opportunities discovered.

You used initiative to come and tell me where you were on the video project rather than having me come to you and ask you for an update.

Condensing a 21-minute video into 59 seconds or less is no easy task, especially knowing the goal is for it to “sizzle”.

Initiative is fairly rare, hence valuable.

In business.

In personal life.

Please remember your small victory (an extra inch), for life is transformed by the innumerable small victories (extra inches) achieved throughout life.

Career leadership 201

Cort (left) was our best man in 1983. Cort and i have known Deb (right) and her husband Howard (our fraternity brother) since 1978. Photo: yesterday biking though Philly.

Career leadership 201:

  • Put contribution ahead of pay
  • Love what you do
  • Live within your means
  • Continuously improve
  • Have fun
  • .think .differently
  • Lean into discomfort
  • Envision a future that’s not only better than now, but much better
  • Develop others
  • It is definitely about who you know – get to know a lot of people and the right people

The list goes on, which is why the next blog about personal organization is critical.

You were born for 2019

 

You were born for 2019.

Go.

Just 60 days from a new year and i’ve been laying out the “battle plan” for 2019 for months already.

Contrast that with the way i used to do it and you have a life • rethought, • reprioritized, and • recommitted

A Total Life Celebration.
