Want to be rich?

Take your role of CEO (being the top dawg in your life) seriously – as if your life depends on it, because it does..

You are the CEO of You, Inc. Vision is your greatest asset.

You are the CEO of You, Inc. Motivation is your second greatest asset.

You should have one clear, concise, and compelling vision for your life.

From that one remarkable vision, you will have multiple visions tiering up to ensure your clear, concise, and compelling vision is realized.

  1. Have a clear, concise, and compelling vision for your lifelong attitude.
  2. Have a clear, concise, and compelling vision for your lifelong health.
  3. Have a clear, concise, and compelling vision for your lifelong spirit.
  4. Have a clear, concise, and compelling vision for your lifelong career.
  5. Have a clear, concise, and compelling vision for your lifelong dwelling.

Life’s five big choices.

Mind, body, spirit, work, home.

Personal vibrancy or struggle to survive.

In business it looks like this: Organizational vibrancy and a category of one, or struggling to keep up with the lead industry pack, and worst case, struggling to grow and prosper (surviving and avoiding bankruptcy).

What Are You Waiting For?

Stop thinking something better is next

diet
Donut or apple?  Also, this image is a photo, not a video.

 

i’d love to get you to .think .differently

To take your new thinking – those thoughts about potentially scalable, remarkable, and game-changing insights – to take them to a noble place.

And then.

To stop thinking.

Stop thinking something better is next.

Stop.

Thinking.

Start.

Doing.

Better to act on your thinking and create transformation.

Better to do ‘80% and go’ then wait for every “i” to be dotted and every “t” to be crossed.

(analysis paralysis)

Standing still – just thinking new thoughts.

To believe you know a new and stunning insight.

It’s not enough.

Act.

Go.

Anyone Else Think Like This?

How long does a typical American career last?

Disney Institute top speakers
From our Disney Institute Participant Guide book. Imagine a person entrusted to teach eager students how to reach for the stars. Imagine if the instructors didn’t actually practice what they preached. i couldn’t live with this thought. Years ago i committed to only preaching what i practice.

 

How long does a typical American career last?

Ten, 20, 30, 40+ years?

How long does a typical American invest in staying physically active?

i’m reminded that it took me 40 years before i committed to “never turning away” from getting and staying physically active.

Think lifetime gym class where you’re the teacher and the student.

And here we are, roughly 100 days from my 59th birthday.

At 58, i’ve reached a level of physical vibrancy i never knew was possible, let alone possible for a “senior citizen”.

And to think, there are people my age who haven’t yet started.

Go.

Being Brave

Aim too high or aim too low

Walt Disney World Monorail
Yesterday, running (from home) to Magic Kingdom entrance.

 

Aim too high or aim too low, there are always going to be critics.

Each aim comes with an outcome.

Each outcome comes with an opportunity.

Recalibration.

The one critical factor that often gets forgotten is the target we set out to achieve in the first place.

Never lose sight of what motivated you in the first place.

Do Not Pass Go

Some leaders are late to the dance

Some leaders are late to the dance. Hey, life happens. To all of us.

Have you encountered that uncomfortable period in your life when you recognize that your obstacle owns your future?

Here we are nine months after retirement and i still don’t have a website that gives me goose bumps.

Why?

Because i’m a hypocrite?

No.

Because i’m slow and deliberate.

Because i’m willing to change course and go down a path that hasn’t been cleared yet.

Have you ever found yourself staring at an astonishing opportunity that not only was completely unplanned for, but it requires much more work than you want to commit to?

Crazy thing though, the hard, arduous work of creating our art is manageable. But only if we are willing to go slowly and intentionally. This flies in the face of fast-paced, get-it-done business thinking.

And because it looks less bold, less determined, less focused, it has the power to embarrass us. The temptation is to rush, and stress, and compromise.

Go slow anyway because the payoff is huge.

The payoff?

An incredibly scalable process and world-class humble confidence. You’ve always had it but now it becomes even more magnificent.
