Enjoy the process

Family Christmas
Life is a blur. We enjoyed the parts of Christmas Day yesterday that were not in focus.

Enjoy the process.

What?

Enjoy the process of dreaming, trying, struggling, progress, setbacks, victories, frustrations.

Why?

Becoming a better CEO of You, Inc is a process.

A lifelong, neverending process.

Enjoy it.

All of it.

Every day.

All day.

Few people are ever famous before they become famous

Few people are ever famous before they become famous.

When a famous person starts out, they aren’t famous.

Safe to say that the overwhelming majority of famous people never intended to be.

Mostly, the famous person was just some person who was looking for work.

Rent, food, clothes. The basics.

But something happens on their journey.

If we could only bottle it and sell it.

Ever catch yourself basking ever so briefly in how far you’ve come professionally?

Ever catch yourself basking ever so briefly in how confident your journey has made you?

Ever bask in these brief, glorious moments everyday?

Some People Never See It Coming

About 50 meters from Jungle Cruise, a job I began January 25, 1982…

Have you ever started out on a reasonable journey, eventually getting to a place you never tried to be, never dreamt of, never had it as a goal?

But there you found yourself, in some way, a remarkable person for having the guts to stick with an idea. Ever do this?

Excellence Is Not A Risk Free Journey

Excellence is not a risk free journey.  Nor is excellence guaranteed, even if you work desperately hard.

I know first hand.

And what I have learned, and in many cases, relearned, is that the road to excellence has no finish line.

We are never at a place where we are finished.

These are lessons Walt Disney learned and worked to his advantage.

Now, I’m teaching our son the key insights of a brilliant man – Walt Disney.

Walt Disney’s ideology taught me how to go from one push up a day ten years ago to the 2009 WMA Masters Track and Field World Championships last week.

My son has seen me apply so many Disney strategies to getting and staying healthy, that he is also inspired to be excellent.

Who wouldn’t want that for a child?

Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂

PS.  Tomorrow, an insight on the recent change in direction here at jungle jeff.  Some of you have commented and I’ll share a sneak peek tomorrow.
