It’s your responsibility to set yourself on fire

Steve Jobs Mid Life Celebration phone
Did Steve Jobs have a premonition about Mid Life Celebration?

 

It’s your responsibility to set yourself on fire.

Period.

If you’re on fire with the passion to do excellent work, congratulations. And thank the CEO of You, Inc.

If you’re not on fire with the passion to do excellent work, good luck with influencing the CEO of You, Inc. You can’t fire her.

It’s really critical to say the obvious.

Anyone who has succeed at this has done so because of one reason. They have refused to let bullcrap excuses – the ones we all have – determine their destiny.

In trying to help others, we cannot escape our own growth.

Mid Life Celebration is a chip off of this old block – Walt Disney.

For the past 8k posts, have avoided mentioning I work full time at Walt Disney World Resort – and have for three decades.

Why remain silent?

Don’t really know why.

It surely isn’t a secret.

The Internet has ensured there are no secrets.

About anything.

Walt Disney always felt the bar for excellence was never high enough and nothing was impossible.

Insight: Pay attention, there is always a lesson to be learned. And rarely are the lessons handed to us on a silver platter.

PS. Trying to explain why I’ve written five daily, differently-themed blogs is like trying to explain Walt Disney’s obsession with quality – sort of a big mystery, until one day it’s not.

Can’t believe what started as a 100-day personal challenge to write in all five midlife celebration blogs (mind-body-spirit-work-home) every single day has continued now 44 months… 7,000 posts later.
