Decision fatigue and our money

Disney Institute insights
Text book insights and real-life application rarely meet. Strive to be an exception.

Decision fatigue and our money.

Over-focus on the things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

This will transform your life.

Many decisions will be made on your journey.

Over-focus on discovering your purpose.

At 40 years old, a phone call from Disney Institute (DI) changed a life forever.

PS. You may go through multiple iterations of your purpose until it becomes crystal clear. Becoming a Father (and a DI teacher) was the final iteration for The Blog Whisperer.

Could This Change Your Life?

Take your time but hurry up

Disney Keynote Speaker retreat
Exact photo and email content…what you read next is what i emailed to someone, including this photo…

 

Forest fire smoke last year provided a view i’d never seen in 45 years of visiting.

Intentionally engage with nature…enjoy, have fun, inspire, refresh, rethink, renew, reprioritize, transform, recommit…the list goes on and on.

BFO – this is a fleeting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to question everything you believe in and decide what your next 10 years hold for you, for the people you love, and for your professional career (your legacy).

Be amazed and be amazing.

Change your scripts and you change your results

Disney Customer Service Speakers
One of 2017’s Writer’s Retreat locations.

 

Often in business, our decision is driven by price.

Sometimes, like yesterday, the price i’ve come to expect wasn’t available.

Two choices.

Buy now at the higher price.

Wait and hope the price drops.

Here’s the catch.

Waiting may limit the flight choices and the price may increase even more.

It felt great to rewrite the old script that said, don’t pay the higher price.

The new script says, make a decision now and move on.

Unmade decisions pile up and overwhelm.

Decisiveness comes with a price – the speed of business, and sanity.

Freedom and joy lies on the other side of decisiveness

plugin minimalist
Today. Had only three plugins to start with. Also deactivated the Genesis Theme and Child Theme on all 5 blogs.

Today. All-In-One-SEO-Pack has 30 million downloads. i trust it to be around for a long time.

 

This is a boring post (as are many) if you aren’t able to read between the lines and understand the unspoken insights embedded in my writing style.

The decision to delete all but one WordPress plugin was finalized while i’ve been writing – this Saturday morning, December 10, 2016.

Also removed commenting on posts. Why? i’m reachable other public ways and reply within 24 hours.

Between texts, emails, phone calls, and meetings, i do not need other additional platforms to check.

By the way, plugins are the easiest route in for hackers to attack your website. Comments and social proof isn’t worth it to me. If i know you, you know you have easy access to me, but not on my blogs.

Seems fair.

Why?

Because i decided it’s fair.

That decision is good enough.

Pushing back the website rebranding date to June 25

Pushing back the website rebranding date to June 25. It was going to be June 8.

Two key partners are out of town this week and at the moment, progress hinges on my decisions.

And decisions this critical are best done collaboratively with these two incredible people.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
