Patience is pass-fail.

Anything less than being patient is not patient (fail).

Wasn’t fishing for a compliment from the social worker

lightbulb evolution
From the Internet but don’t know who to attribute it to.

 

i talk and write prolifically about health, wellness, balance, Disney, excellence, death, living, personal responsibility, excuses, and second chances.

In our lengthy conversation, i never shared what i do nor where i spent a lifetime working.

And i certainly wasn’t fishing for a compliment from the social worker.

Spoke with her for 50 minutes. She was a generous listener, a wise counsel.

And at one point she said, “You really have a strong grasp on the issues you face. I talk to many people but I don’t talk to many people who have that.”

While her agency isn’t the right one, she was the right one for the first call.

Murphy’s law was trying to break me

Graphic design specs
Spent two hours at Kinkos yesterday. Learned that a workbook cover will have a white edge surrounding it unless you pay extra for the “bleed” for an 8.50 x 11.0. i wasn’t looking to learn this.

 

Murphy’s law was trying to break me yesterday afternoon. How do i know? When something that should be easy, quick, and fun turns into the opposite.

There’s a feeling i get when professionals don’t do their jobs like they mean it. Going through the motions (it happens sometimes) only frustrates me when someone else in the organization knows the ball was dropped, but doesn’t apologize and doesn’t quickly reassure me not to worry about a thing.

Thank you to Moises, team lead, for exuding great karma. The last thing i needed was one more person to get involved, but Moises wowed me with his can-do attitude and ownership.

Being Brave

Trust your people to find the solution

Disney Customer Service Keynote Speaker
The entire circle needs a creative solution so that it becomes easily readable on a mobile device.

 

Trust your people to find the solution.

Patience is a virtue.

Learn, and relearn, how to not micro-manage.

Note to self, patience (and vision) is a virtue

Note to self, patience (and vision) is a virtue.

In fact, it’s the only way to maintain sanity.

Even driven, determined leaders must exercise patience.

A tree doesn’t grow overnight, but it does grow.

Same with an impossible vision.
