What Are You Waiting For?

No time for lunch in the past 30 years?

No.

Not in the past 30 years did Cheryl and i have lunch together. Countless dinners at Disney, but never lunch. Why? The pace is fast at Disney. Outsiders have no idea.

We also did not have lunch together a few days ago after the first paying, post Disney speaking gig.

Made an honest attempt. But with Cheryl being out sick all week, it made a really good argument for staying in the office.

In hindsight, i could have brought lunch into her office.

Live and learn.

Starting today you have been promoted to CEO of ME, Inc. So think about that for a minute… what if you ran your life like a business?

And what if you thought of your direct reports, peers, and partners as your prized customers?

How will you manage your brand reputation in 2014?

If not today, when?

The inherent challenge with drifting off the beaten leadership path is

The inherent challenge with drifting off the beaten leadership path is unproven ideas scare us.

What if we react in a way our teammates (friends and Family too) don’t expect?

Our desire to fit in trumps our curiosity. So we stop (even though we hate that about ourselves).

For some that fear is less than the fear of not living fully alive.

And so, I continue to write five daily, different blogs about work life balance.

What is it that changes inside us when we no longer seek permission nor acceptance? When we’re ready to make a new set of rules?

Everything?

Yes!
