Take this job and love it

Disney Keynote Speaker
GNP. Our final Glacier National Park photo from 2014. i was 55, he was 13. i spoke briefly about savoring the moment because it may not happen again. Luckily it has, but hindsight is always 20/20.

My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it.

We think we have time

GNP. In 2014 we joked about returning to Glacier to have lunch one more time before school began. We actually returned to Glacier just to have lunch. We stayed a few more days too.

Too long a sacrifice can make a stone of the heart.

Get-to-do

Henry David Thoreau quote
Perhaps the granddaddy grandparent of all motivational quotes.

If you choose a job that you like, you will never have to work a day in your life.

Confucius

In work, do what you enjoy.

Lao-tzu

At work, make sure your get-to-do’s have at least 51% controlling interest over your have-to-do’s.

i get high on teaching

coaching call notes on napkin
Three ways we improve: by accident, from a sub-goal to a larger goal, and by making daily improvement a non-negotiable in the form of a “game”.

i get high on teaching.

A text sent yesterday after a 40-minute coaching call…

the gloomy cold rainy day had me think about what people might do if they had the day off…rather than drink or get high, i’d love to be absorbed in teaching (and teaching teaches me – to teach is to learn twice)

No really

Gotta love leadership

If Disney Ran Your Life Podcast in Kuwait
The big trifecta: Jack the Bear, Stitch, and the Bead Jar. What compels a father to travel across the globe with these unnecessary travel items? It’s simple: love and leadership.

Gotta love leadership.

How can we not?

Leadership is how things get done.

Leadership is how we inspire and teach the next generation of leaders (and parents).
