Expect the unexpected

Disney Conference Speakers
Whew, time to roll up the sleeves.

Expect the unexpected.

Last June i planned to kick off Summer 2019 and arrive in Glacier National Park yesterday, June 1.

The Madrid Disney Creativity Keynote speech was a recent opportunity; it provides Thinking Heads HQ and me a chance to meet in person.

Son, plan your future intentionally. Plan to be flexible too.

Patience is a virtue and challenging to apply 100%

Apple Genius Bar repair ticket
Apple Store Genius Bar appointment to replace cracked screen. A week’s wait for an appointment, a $99 deductible, and a one-hour wait is a small price to pay for a better future.

 

Patience is a virtue and challenging to apply 100% of the time.

But that’s what great leadership (and parenting) is all about, being consistent when the pressures tempt us to loose our patience.

Leadership is also about seeing ahead and preparing a future that is better than now, much better.

One small hairline crack from a single dropped iPhone led to a set of spider-web cracks after a second drop one week later. Heading back to Glacier National Park for a week i don’t want a third drop to render the iPhone useless.

Plan ahead.

Simple.

Not easy.

Temptation to wait almost always runs high.

Plan for it to end

Daisies
Anomaly? It happens. A few days ago driving Going-to-the-Sun Road for the final time before heading home.

 

Plan for it to end. Literally a four day notice. Thankful for the time we had and what we accomplished together in 90 days.

Is there a chance it will continue?

Of course.

Remain optimistic, keep moving forward, and expect the unexpected.

So What?

Second-hand benefits

Six Big Horn Sheep at Logan Pass. They look like rocks with legs. Decent chance you can’t spot them.

Six Big Horn Sheep never came any closer than this photo.

 

Six Big Horn sheep descended from their high-altitude base camp. We sat at the parking lot’s edge, hoping they’d cross close by. It was fun to watch the motorists try to sneak a five-second view as they drove by.

The second-hand benefit from an early arrival and a parking space is that we watched the Big Horn Sheep for 15 minutes.
