i want to meet the crazy person who came up with it

Windermere 5k 2018
Made a beeline to find the booth behind Town Hall. Didn’t know which booth to approach, so i guessed.

 

Windermere 5k 2018
Jacquelyn and Tricia answered every question i had except, “Who or what team came up with such a crazy goal?”

 

Healthiest community in America
Bold. Inspiring. Probably impossible.

 

i want to meet the crazy person who came up with it.

We want West Orange to be the healthiest community in the Country.

Had we delayed a minute more back in the parking lot, i’d have missed the announcement.

Without hearing the announcement, this post wouldn’t exist.

Additionally, it could have been years, or never, before i heard of this initiative.

What we accept by default becomes this

Lots of solutions to fit unique situations.

 

Nasal spray prescription
After 15 years, i’m down to only one daily nasal spray.

 

It boggles my mind how long it took me to stop putting a band aid on seasonal allergies, which were almost incapacitating. Now i’m on a monthly maintenance allergy shot and can breath easily during the worst pollen seasons.

What we accept by default becomes this – the standard.

What we think and do every day is our cultural norm.

The only reason employees do what they do is because we let them.

Employees can’t violate company standards for long without being asked to leave the company.

Either that, or the standards culture changes.

These two cannot be separated

Lone runner at sunrise
All the other runners are ahead of us. It’s my job to ensure he remains ok with this for now, and that he can see, feel, and touch the progress he makes week after week.

 

Parenting, like leadership, comes without a manual.

Leadership and parenting are not two separate entities. Living and leadership are not either.

Every adult is a CEO.

CEO of  You, Inc.

Balance is not a myth

iPhone 6s Plus box labeling
Seemingly insignificant details. Closer inspection tells the story that this phone is intended to replace my iPad. Why? The iPad doesn’t fit in a pocket.

 

Balance is not a myth. To balance today’s posts, this one needs to remain at only two sentences.

Life’s a…

90-year olds
Last night, two 90+ year olds, and a pup (a 60-year old).

 

Life’s a _______.

Fill in the blank.

Are the words or phrases we contemplate negative or positive?

Truth be told this is how we approach everything in our life.

Easy to deny.

If we deny it, it’s a huge and nagging blind spot.

It takes guts to go against the herd mentality.

We accelerate our personal leadership decline when we start taking it easy.
