How to tell if you are prone to excellence in your job

examining life
what is it that we are afraid of discovering about ourselves?

The unexamined life is not worth living. – Socrates

I know this sounds harsh. It is, really. Socrates said it as he was being sentenced to death – he was on trial for heresy, for encouraging his students to challenge accepted beliefs.

The really harsh part? Actually, well, the harsh part is that it was true then and is still today. The question then is, “What are we going to do about it”

Retired Disney Institute Keynote Speaker and Prolific Blogger. Five daily, differently-themed personal blogs (about life's 5 big choices) on five interconnected sites.


  1. Is recognizing the importance of challenging accepted beliefs the first step? Or is the first step actually DOING something about it?

    If we discover that truth is not a part of a belief, why associate ourselves with it?

  2. David, all I can think about is this…
    “It matters little to walk to do the preaching, if not the walking, is the preaching”.

    As a bonus (‘cuz it’s Mother’s day)…
    “To know is to do. To know and not do, is to not yet know”.

    Thanks for spending so much time at these five little acorns I call Life’s big choices. 🙂
