Could This Change Your Life?

You’re a good person is the good news (it’s also the bad news)

blockchain TED talk
Blockchain TED talk, worth the 18 minutes it took to watch last night. The link is at the end of this post, don’t click the photo.
blockchain TED talk
Blockchain TED talk…so worth it. Easiest-to-understand explanation i’ve heard so far.

The good news is you’re a good person.

Wait, there’s some bad news too.

The bad news is you’re a good person.

Good is the enemy of great.

Great gets us closer to thriving – personal vibrancy.

Good gets us closer to mediocrity – personal surviving.

Learn, unlearn, relearn.

This is great.

You are never tested and tempted to make excuses

The list of flaws is long…this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Being on the road reminds me of how important habits are.

You are never tested and tempted to make excuses like you are when you travel – everything about your routine is out of synch.

You’re living in a hotel room.

No kitchen, no car (probably), travel fatigue, weather changes, limited to resources that fit in your travel bag(s), etc.

The interesting thing as i observe people and organizations as a profession is that habits drive everything we do.

We have the power to change habits, but we almost always make excuses for why we can’t change.

To which a brilliant piece of wisdom emerges automatically:

Can’t and won’t are not synonymous.

 

i can’t change.

i won’t change.

Those two are not the same.

Dear Son

Every day we are busy doing one or the other

Mojave download
Dark mode. Going to use it to see what happens. Trying new things is challenging for most. New things may not be as good as the old tried-and-true things.

 

MacBook storage metric
Two MacBooks. Always have a backup.

 

Every day we are either busy being born or we are busy dying.

Disney has taught me the power of being intentional and helped me with a transformational reality:

i am intentional with the same things i used to be unintentional with or ignored.

It’s who you know

Glacier vacation home
i’m assuming my relationship with Char facilitated a quick and easy cancellation approval.

 

Make feedback normal. Not a performance review.  – Ed Batista

 

There are enough unscrupulous people to influence the negative stereotypes of vacation home renters.

What might have been a drawn-out hassle of proving extenuating circumstances, wasn’t.

Char didn’t flinch in immediately refunding my paid-in-full reservation.

For the past year, i’ve communicated with her in manageable chunks and often paying compliments about her cabin and to her community.

Culture is defined in one word

 

Culture is defined in one word.

Habits.

The easier it is to do something, the easier it is to do it again. The easier it is to not do something, the easier it is to not do it again.
