Dear Son

Dear Son, thank you for last night’s extended conversation

Disney Keynote Speakers
So yeah, in this photo, i’m thinking this may be my last view of Logan Pass. And i’m aware there could be many more, but i am living as if 2018 is my last Summer there.

 

Things in your life will either be better than you expect or less than you expect.

We do not have a crystal ball to tell us exactly how the future will unfold.

This is called a blinding flash of the obvious.

But this little gem, below, isn’t obvious (even though it is)…

When “bad things” happen, rejoice that good things also happen – and in ways that are much better than we could have imagined.

Focus on this yin and yang.

Both extremes teach us.

Be a great and grateful student.

Why?

Because if you aren’t, think deeply about what you get as the opposite.

What Are You Waiting For?

Turn the great money down, it’s not worth it

Barber shop near Disney
Yesterday, waiting for a haircut. Vince Lombardi’s photo made me think.

Paraphrased: “Gentlemen, we will chase perfection and in doing so we’ll catch excellence.”

 

In my business, i steer clear of desperate organizations, even when they are willing to pay a premium.

Why?

Because it’s just not worth it.

And by the way, it’s very tempting – for about five seconds.

Weirdly, the same feeling is seeping into my personal life.

Friends, Family – some of them are digging themselves into a hole so deep, i don’t have a clue how to help them.

My focus is listed on my business cards…

“Speeches and Advising for organizations that want to change the world.”

Pick one of two ways to live

Most people don’t make the evening news, even though many of their choices are contrary to what comes out of their mouth.

Pick one way to live:

  1. Choose to go, do, and be.
  2. Choose to wait, wish, and hope.

Bottomline, a yes has the same risk and reward as a no

Indisputable Excellence
Yesterday at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

 

He’s thinking about next steps.

It will be expensive, relatively speaking.

On the other hand, it’s an incredible bargin.

Bottomline, a yes has the same risk and reward as a no.

Taking risks is risky, so is playing it safe.

Growth and surrender are inseparable.

Go.

These two cannot be separated

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.
