Rushed and hallucinogenic

leg extension at gym
Been consistently going to the gym since 2000. Physical vibrancy is gained over years, not weeks nor months. You know this and it’s the reason you are doing well right now.

It’s challenging to focus on opportunity right now because it is something you hadn’t thought of before.

With Covid-19 panic, critical and creative thinking is currently rushed and hallucinogenic.

Now is not the time to begin executing a new master plan to save your livelihood. Just like a medical wake up call is not the time to sign up for a marathon, assuming that the unhealthy person is not a runner and probably never was, now is not the time to think you can do the right work and handle a massive “reinvention” workload.

Summary: If you didn’t have it in you before, you aren’t going to flip a switch and have it now. And if you have it now, it’s because you’ve been doing the long, slow grind of a lifetime of personal and professional development. Congrats.

Could This Change Your Life?

Notes to myself

inspiring sayings
Upper left hand-written note: Over-estimate short-term, under-estimate long term.

 

Notes to myself…

We over-estimate the short run and under-estimate the long run.

The long way is the short-cut.

Simply decide to begin and go slowly.

Your progress over time will astound you.

And if you don’t begin, your lack of progress will bury you.

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.

Do Not Pass Go

A routine haircut and the next thing you know, an extraordinary insight

West Chester PA
Learned more about drinking here than anywhere else.

 

Leadership. Inspiration. Results. Enter a routine hair cut. Her husband couldn’t quit drinking. They divorced. His drinking got worse. He died two years ago. Cirrhosis of the liver.

Immediately wanted to say something to ease the painful memory or at least maximize the empathy. But I kept my mouth shut.

My own experience with alcohol and the fact that December 30, 2001 was the last time I’ve had any, well, didn’t feel right.

Driving home, the revelation that overcoming the addiction was a major life accomplishment. Hell yeah it was impossible difficult.

Am I The Only One?

There are many ways to raise a child – do we begin with the end in mind?

 

Yesterday a 9th grader visited the 7th and 8th graders and was sharing with them how his father taught him extensively about money. From the time he was a little boy he was shown the bills, payments, investments – he saw them all and even had to sign off that he read them.

Fast forward this same boy to 7th and 8th grade and the Internet.

The fatherly advice for free, unlimited, unrestricted Internet access? “Don’t go on You Tube, there’s bad stuff there”.

Not judging (even if it sounds like it). Rather, observing the difference in detail.

We teach what we know. Don’t we?

An expert money manager? For sure.

An Internet expert in the new, global social economy? You decide.

Online predators, pornography, hackers, bullies, age-inappropriate options.
