You never see this

4-second video created to share with business colleagues. Lee’s window is a traditional stop. Lee, Dan, and Jody always receive a short “thinking of you” video text.

You never see these types of colleague or client videos.

Of course, Family and friends receive these too.

Why?

Because they are meant for a small audience, a specific person, or handful of people.

How often do i record and send these?

“All the time”.

Disney’s Magic Kingdom Theme Park. A stop within a stop. HOP is Hall of Presidents. These two chairs. Iconic, at least to locals. Waiting for dinner reservation.

Surprise and delight

Disney Customer Service Keynote speaker
What a delightful surprise.

What a delightful surprise to see Mickey Mouse at dinner.

What is interesting in this photo, to me, is what i’m wearing here:

  • Is what i wore on the plane from Orlando.
  • Is what i wore the next day to give the Disney Customer Service Keynote.
  • Is what i wore to fly home on the third day

Eventually gonna travel without a business jacket.

We shall see.

The biggest challenges

mountain bicycling
The sole reason i continue to write prolifically after 13+ years of never missing a day is to leave a trail for this college student. A secondary reason surfaced after the original 100-day, self-imposed writer’s bootcamp – writing helps me find peace and contentment on a wild planet.

The biggest challenges with fear:

  • Narrowing the gap between closed mindset and growth mindset
  • Unintentionally fueling no-win discussion/arguments
  • Quelling fear
  • Remaining patient and professional with the opposite
  • Losing hope that there will be a mutual understanding

Life is a career gamble

mid life celebration, the book
Random grab from iPhoto library. There are hundreds of thousands of photos. Been carrying a camera with me way before the phone doubled as a camera.

Life is a career gamble.

The reason we work is to earn the currency that allows us to live, eat, and play. And to afford things like insurance and healthcare that help us when we have troubles.

The career you chose – the work you are paid to do – is a reflection of your personal investment in understanding foundational truths.

Rather than riff about it on this post, will stop and simple say, use this blog’s search function and use keywords that focus on what you believe are personal leadership truths. With 5,000+ posts on this individual website, this is a hybrid master-class waiting to happen. The topic: Personal leadership excellence.
