No really

No, this time i mean it!

Three cubs are rare. Three determined efforts to transform is rare too.

No, this time i really mean it!

What?

Quit drinking.

Oh, and writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts for 100 consecutive days.

Both succeeded only after two failed attempts at, ” No, this time i really mean it!”

They say third time’s a charm.

True that.

When it rains it pours

We see what we want to see. Patience is a virtue that we will never believe in if we aren’t willing to have faith in our integrity and expertise.

Three days ago signed a three-day engagement contract with a local client.

Last night another client got the green light from their Board to engage in an external business advisor (possibly me).

Out of the blue yesterday, a third client reached out to continue discussion about engaging my Disney expertise.

Also yesterday, the person recommended to me to help market and support Community Programs across the US and Canada accepted the invitation to collaborate.

Spoke at length, again, two days ago to the Pod Caster running Lee Cockerell’s Creating Magic podcast. Lee made the recommendation to me.

And this morning at 7:00am, we drive our son to his first day of High School freshman year.

You know how they say, “Do not quit because you could be so close and if you quit, you’ll never know”?

It took 16 years to overcome this fear.

It was a stupid fear.

Refusing to quit doing the right things for the right reason does this…

It eventually pays exponentially high dividends and proves one thing…

Living admirably only becomes clear after years and years of steady belief action.

One Question A Day?

One of the scariest questions I’ve ever said yes to

excerpt from Seth Godin's Icarus Deception
Scary question, “Are you an artist?”

 

One of the scariest questions I’ve ever said yes to:

Are you willing to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes?

Yes.

Conviction is extraordinarily powerful.

So is a long-range plan, endless patience, and steady perseverance.
