Could This Change Your Life?

Universally agreed upon

Disney Keynote Speakers
Still can’t find an “Undaunted” photo…and stumbled upon this one from University of Iowa Health Care. The passion to make a remarkable difference as a speaker led to me telling this story.

Approach mindset: No-brainer wisdom, universally agreed upon, always followed.

You have to feel passionate in order to persevere.

Avoidance mindset: No-brainer wisdom, universally agreed upon, rarely followed.

You have to feel passionate or you’ll give up.

Dear Universe, thank you for my passion. And thank you, Universe, for the mind shift.

Are you satisfied?

When you wake up every day, what are some of the first things you do or think about?  Did you start thinking about today last night?

The workday begins the night before.

So last night, in thinking about yesterday’s post and the reference to the Fast Company article, I’m good with it ending the way it did.

Do you start blaming others and thinking about all the things “they” need to do? Or do you look in the mirror and analyze what you need to fix?

This will determine, in large part, your success or failure.

What was interesting was that just yesterday, these jeff noel blogs set a single day record for daily visits. It’s taken years to get “here”.

And I got here by doing stuff, not by anything else.

Be more:

  • Creative than you ever have
  • Focused than you ever have
  • Willing to fix yourself than you ever have
  • Determined than you ever have

And find your purpose.  That’s the key.  You know it and I know it. We all read about it, and listen to others talk about it.

Talk is cheap. And so is lying to ourselves.

Continuous improvement and ongoing professional education are crucial for staying competitive and thriving in a down economy.

Rubbish.

We should be doing all we can to do stuff, not read and study stuff.

We should be doing stuff. Stuff that our gut tells us is right. Stuff that our gut tells us needs to be started yesterday.

We can read articles and attend seminars, but at some point, in my humble opinion, we need to start doing something, something more.

At the end of this post, you’ll have a link to a recent  Fast Company article about finding creative, untraditional ways to solve unsolvable problems challenges.

It’s four pages long.  I “got it” after the first page, but read the second page as well, out of guilt – for fear of looking obnoxious or boastful.  Whatever, right?

Listen, I’m so annoyed and fired up, that I need to end this post now. After some cool down time, will try again tomorrow to finish this. Well, maybe. Maybe my point has already been made.

PS. Just for the record, I read a ton, in between doing stuff and getting uncommon results.

Work For Money?

jungle jeff, Daily reflections on Excellence, has an overarching theme.  Money.

As I teach our son about life’s four big quadrants, jungle jeff’s blog is focused on only one.  Money.

Money is not the root of all evil. It is the love of money that is the root.

Whatever you believe, I’m teaching our son that every human should contribute to society in some way.  In return, society pays you with money, generally speaking.

With money, you can buy food, shelter, insurance, transportation, and even use money to help others.

And one more thing I’m trying to teach him, “He is rich who owes nothing.” — Hungarian Proverb

Think

Think.  Think Tank.  Think it over. Think before you act.

Think things through.  What will people think?  I can’t think.

What would your parents think?  No time to think.

Think before you speak.  Think you know it all, don’t you?

  1. Make yourself think
  2. I challenge you to think
  3. Do you demand yourself to think?
  4. Do you demand others to think?

When we are aware of the reasons why we don’t think -which causes us to slowly start to wither as a vibrant, inspired individual – we have the opportunity to really do something about it.  You know, to reverse it.

But that might be too hard for you, I think.

I mean, what do you think?

Hell Heck yes it’s difficult.  Why the hell heck do you think so few people have the guts to change anything, let alone change themselves.

PS.  This is the conversation I just had with myself. This happens all day, everyday.  My mind is a battlefield of what I want to do, should do, and actually do.  I think.
