Negative leadership karma?

Going To The Sun Mountain. Moody.
Caught the pole pulling out.
Logan Pass is around the right corner, several miles away.
Whitecaps.
Montana is Big Sky country. Glacier takes this to a different level.

After a wonderful early morning hike at Logan Pass i sat in the rental car for nearly an hour while finishing yesterday’s blog posts.

Every visitor arriving after 8:00 AM is subjected to the same harsh reality – no available parking. And no alternatives.

It’s intense, frustrating, and annoying for thousands of daily visitors.

The number of times people saw me in the car and thought i was leaving tested my patience.

It shouldn’t have.

My patience should have triumphed.

It didn’t.

When i pulled out of the front row space, negative karma reminded me how destructive impatience is.

On the drive down, i quickly counted my blessings and recalibrated the situation.

Almost instantaneously, i regained peace and contentment.

Sent my Alamo contact (an assistant manager i befriended a month ago) three photos and a summary.

Great karma owns up to mistakes and accepts responsibility for every error.

A full day that could have been avoided

Small but mighty airport. Small but mighty fork(y).
Apple products can arrive in hours but you have to be present. No one was home. We figured it out.
The small table served as an office from 11:00 AM – 6:30PM yesterday. Needed good WiFi connection. It didn’t work as well as planned, based on previous experience.
It was recommended by a local that i check this place out.
Dad helping his son with the ball ramp.
Leaving Columbia Falls for Rising Sun.
Traffic was non-existent and the drive was relaxing, providing quality self-reflection time.

Seven hours at Columbia Falls Library. 

Uploaded 450 of 1,000 picture and videos. 

Visited Smiths to get a few groceries and supplies. 

Went across the street to Glacier Lanes because it was recommended to check out. Long ago when the Hungrey Horse Dam was being built, there were three bowling centers. Now there’s one. 

Drove Going To The Sun Road without a soul in my lane. 

Drove the speed limit even though it would have been easy to drive faster. 

Leadership is mostly a behind the scenes job. No one sees the hard work. Do the hard work anyway. 

You’ll see a disproportionately high number of great days.

Change what you see and you change what you think

Deep in thought near Logan Pass
Somewhere near 7,500 feet. Mt. Reynolds in the background.
Looking West, Northwest from the saddle between Clements Mountain and Mt. Oberlin.

In addition to changing what we see, there may or may not be special efforts required to see new things.

The effort expended often accentuates our readiness and excitement to .see .differently

Congrats on yesterday’s video shoot near Oberlin’s summit.

It’s Magical to see life bloom

jeff noel and his Marketing Director in Glacier
Scouting film locations.

Reading leadership books is a great start. So is attending class in person and online.

The real Magic happens when you teach personal leadership.

To teach is to learn twice.

The best teachers are passionate, they tell stories, and they use personal examples.

Practice like you mean it

jeff noel Disney Speaker
A moment in time, capturing a marketing video location – Wild Goose Island on St Mary Lake.

The drive from East to West yesterday provided six breathtaking film locations. 

Short clips. 

Awe-inspiring backdrops. 

Marketing. 

Offers to the world. 

Insights that may not change the world, but insights in which i have no doubt can change yours.
