Do nothing

Glacier National Park
GNP. Mt Clements, July 2014.

Because it is less structured than work, leisure time leaves workaholics at a loss for what to do. Workaholics practically climb the wall when they can’t work.

Marilyn Macholowicz

Learn to be able to be busy doing nothing. It’s a gift to yourself.

Still can’t turn it off

LinkedIn moment thread screen shot
My thread offered the first caller an opportunity to call me for a free coaching/ask me anything opportunity. On rare occasions when i bicycle, i’ll offer this. It’s a donation of my time and talent. Jumping the shark is derogatory. Ridiculous is self explanatory. Using all caps is LOL really loudly. To which, peacefully, i replied below…
LinkedIn comment thread screenshot
Also at peace knowing that it’s possible to think the funny things C-19 “has us all doing” was (only) my half of this thread.

The insatiable desire to learn and teach is a blessing and a curse.

As i live with peace and contentment, it’s a blessing.

When i stray from peace and contentment, it’s a curse.

Not everyone has an insatiable desire to learn (or teach).

Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Florence Nightingale, Nelson Mandela, Marie Curie, the best Grandmothers – they all suffered from envisioning a future not only better than now, but much better.

Impossibly better.

No really

Are you satisfied with your life’s pace?

Last night on LinkedIn. Busy executives are astounded on Undercover Boss. They were clueless about what happens on the front line. Why?

i’m defining ambition as a busy mind. We can also say that being consistently/constantly preoccupied defines ambition too.

My 60 years of research and study concludes that ambition of any kind accelerates the passage of time.

Moving too fast through life is a proven way to miss small, wonderful nuances of life. When was the last time you stopped to stare at the clouds and find cool cloud images?

Peace of mind feels elusive when our pace raises our stress levels too high for too long.

Peace of mind is only possible through:

  • Simplification
  • Clarity
  • Slowness
  • Becoming indistracable

Distraction is our human response to something uncomfortable. Highly-processed food snacking between meals. Facebook when we are bored or stressed. Watching TV or YouTube.

Final 120 Days

What happens when you’re overwhelmed?

My misfit idea is that balance exists. In 2008, i incorporated a small business and quickly discerned the secret to balance.

What happens when you’re overwhelmed?

Stress multiplies rapidly.

My “eliminating stress” lifetime batting average is world-class but it is not perfect.

Because it’s world-class, i remember why i work so hard to eliminate it.

Living with a world-class batting average versus living with a poor batting average is like living with democracy and justice versus living in a worn-torn counrtry.

Could This Change Your Life?

Focus on zero expectations to thrive in business

Disney Customer Service Speakers
Adventureland at Walt Disney World two days ago.

 

Disney Management Keynote Speakers
Business meeting “in the Jungle”.

 

Disney Leadership Keynote Speakers
Founder of Jungle Navigation Company Ltd.

 

Disney Customer Service Speakers
Originally a shipping company founded in 1911.

 

Disney Institute Speakers
What began as a shipping company, two decades later it became a tourist attraction.

 

Disney Culture Expert Speakers
In the deepest, darkest regions of the Jungle lie stories untold.

 

Focus on zero expectations to thrive in business.

The minute i become a slave to what someone else may or may not be able to provide, i become dependent on something i cannot control.

Stay away from these situations.

Lean on the insane creativity you’ve cultivated over your lifetime.

Cash in on it.

The solutions you are looking for will be simple and they will set you free.
