Slow down to speed up

Once in a lifetime sighting that lasted 30 minutes.

How is it possible to gain speed by slowing down?

You either know this concept first-hand or you don’t.

Even knowing it first-hand doesn’t guarantee you’ll embrace slowing down as a go-to tactic when faced with an unpredictable future.

The world is full of examples where rushing through life is a painful way to learn.

What if it’s not impossible?

Last night, same office window as here.

What if it’s not impossible?

Which has more power to stir the human soul, a goal that is obviously in reach or one that feels like it could never be within your reach?

Brief moments of thinking brilliantly

DFW airport, two days ago. What an insane accolade. Congrats DFW.

DFW airport. Wow, Wow, 475 out of 500 top companies use Webex. Congrats Webex.

DFW airport. Deloitte is the largest “business services” firm in the world.

On a mentoring phone call, yesterday walking back from the gym, a moment of insight.

Similar to how Roy Disney saw profit as the goal and Walt saw profit as the reward, i told the mentee to use that contrast in his Disney Leadership application.

Guessing close to 100% of the applicants apply with a job as the goal. What if Tim applied with a job as the reward?

He liked it. i liked it.

That wordsmithing had never happened prior to yesterday, March 15, 2019.

Sell more, to more people, more often

Wind him up and watch him GO. He walks and poops jelly beans. Photo, 12 hours ago at Publix.

Every marketing department in every organization has one job: sell more, to more people, more often.

And in many departments, admirable values are not driving decision making. Yes, this is funny. And to some people, it is also childish. Poop jokes. Whatever sells, right?

Thank goodness for risks and failures

Disney's Wilderness Lodge light pole
Can you tell where this Walt Disney World location is just from the light pole design?

Thank goodness for risks and failures.

What?

Thank goodness for risks and failures.

Without them…

We would never learn to walk.

We’d never improve.

We’d never come alive.

We’d never know fear.

We’d never know joy.

And we’d never know freedom.
