Still can’t turn it off

LinkedIn moment thread screen shot
My thread offered the first caller an opportunity to call me for a free coaching/ask me anything opportunity. On rare occasions when i bicycle, i’ll offer this. It’s a donation of my time and talent. Jumping the shark is derogatory. Ridiculous is self explanatory. Using all caps is LOL really loudly. To which, peacefully, i replied below…

Also at peace knowing that it’s possible to think the funny things C-19 “has us all doing” was (only) my half of this thread.

The insatiable desire to learn and teach is a blessing and a curse.

As i live with peace and contentment, it’s a blessing.

When i stray from peace and contentment, it’s a curse.

Not everyone has an insatiable desire to learn (or teach).

Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Florence Nightingale, Nelson Mandela, Marie Curie, the best Grandmothers – they all suffered from envisioning a future not only better than now, but much better.

Impossibly better.

One Question A Day?

What do you expect to receive from LinkedIn?

LinkedIn errors
Yesterday received this update. Wayne and i worked together. He does not have 47 years – just a simple typo. Nicole (another colleague) moved from Engagement Manager (Consultant) to Sales Manager – moves like this generally involve less travel.

 

What do you expect to receive from LinkedIn?

Is it working for you?

Does the time you spend on LinkedIn match the return on investment you desire (for spending that time)?

No really

At the risk of antagonizing LinkedIn trolls

LinkedIn update comment
Click bait? Could be intentional. Might be unintentional. Doesn’t matter. It’s our choice as to what we do.

 

LinkedIn update comment
Ha. i came back, but replied only to my Disney Institute colleague Fernando’s comment.

 

The question in the photo above had me thinking. But i resisted the urge to reply.

Why?

The first thought was i shouldn’t give away my proprietary approach.

So i left.

Then i started to think about using my answer as today’s blog post material.

So i went back.

But hesitated again.

Why?

Trolls.

The second time around i wasn’t going to give the proprietary answer, but rather, insert intrigue – but only in a reply to a commenter, my friend Fernando.

You know, some reply that claims i know, and the bold statement i could get it in under 10 minutes – rather than observe a two-hour meeting.

Note: Give me one minute, individually with the CEO and each of her eight (educated guess) cabinet members and with one question, i’ll know in under 10 minutes.

Dear CEO

overgrown sign
Neglect and out-of-control are partners that rely on each other. Photo: yesterday at huge intersection near some of the most affluent West Orange County (Florida) subdivisions.

 

Dear CEO,

The paradox of being the Chief Executive and/or Owner is that it’s lonely at the top.

You don’t have to settle for lonely.

How often do you feel remarkably inspired?

How long does your inspiration last?

Is it the same for your Cabinet?

When was the last time you laughed really hard at work?

Satisfied with your answers?

Of course not.

So what’s your next move?

Who’s asking you the questions no one has the courage to ask you?

Who do you trust your (vulnerable) answers with?

If you admire Disney, are driven to be the best, and are willing to invest in yourself and your Company…

Text me at 407-538-4341 to set up a call you’ll never regret. i promise.

 

Note: This content was my LinkedIn profile summary for most 0f 2017. Changed it today, October 18, 2017.

A Summer of Questions

What does a CEO really want that may be impossible?

Prepping last night for a Leadership Keynote.
