No really

Month

Galaxy’s Edge Cast Previews August 2019.

Here’s a train of thought for the new decade that begins in three days:

  • Moment
  • Hour
  • Day
  • Week
  • Month
  • Quarter
  • Year
  • Decade
  • Life

If Disney Ran Your Life, you learn to instinctively over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

You learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

The power that a decision we make in a month has the power to grow and influence by the year.

Disney’s secret

Disney’s secret is illustrated here.
Disney’s secret is illustrated here too.

Disney’s secret?

Can you keep a secret?

Promise?

Okay.

Disney’s secret is to over focus on the same things that others under focus on or ignore. We have learned to be intentional where others are unintentional.

Please don’t tell anyone.

It’s a secret.

Note: Top photo shows three, not one, not two, wet paint signs. Vacationing Guests are incredibly distracted by all the stimulus and don’t always notice helpful things. Second photo shows peanut butter being spread on both bread slices – when jelly is used (instead of bananas), peanut butter keeps bread from getting soggy.

Blinding flash of the obvious (again)

Disney Keynote Speakers
Summer 2009, age 50, Finland, Masters Track & Field World Championships.

 

So easy to not see the forest for the trees, right?

Having a clear picture of the whole system and how everything relates would have given me a new perspective on the choices i needed to make.

Broadening the goal from focusing on completing a half-marathon let’s say, to include having a body capable of competing at a higher level, changes how I would view all of the smaller decisions in my exercise transformation.

Moving my goal from winning a local Masters track meet, to winning the State Championship, to aiming for the National Championships final, to competing at the World Championships – this was an excellent example in practicing the art of over-focusing on what i used to under-focus on or ignore.

Prior to the impossible goal of the world championships in 2009, my excuse for eating poorly was that i was burning so many calories with all the exercise i was doing.

My excuse for not stretching was that i was putting in so much time exercising.

My excuse for not sleeping sufficiently was that i had to make up the time i put into training.

Had i focused on the performance of my health metrics, rather than the physical aspect of training, i would have made better decisions with food, stretching, and sleeping.

All of that to get to this…

A goal of growing your revenue doesn’t fix a spending problem.

A goal of exercising more doesn’t fix an eating problem.

Sure they’ll make things look better for a while, but you’ll still be making choices that undermine the real goal.

You have to look at the whole of something before you can break it down.

When we understand the entirety of the system and the actual goal we’re trying to achieve, the better our day to day decisions will be.

Who knew?
