Technically, i should still be working at Disney

If it hadn’t been for the 2008-2009 economic crisis and the ensuing Disney layoffs, i’d still be working for Disney.

  1. i would not be an author.
  2. i would not be a business owner.
  3. i would not be a an executive coach.

i would have wound up with 40 years at Disney instead of 30, retiring in 2024 instead of 2014.

will tell ya when I'm going to celebrate, but not until somethings been accomplished

Does this thought process ever cross your mind?

I’m on to something and you’re the first to hear about it

courage
no, i haven’t started drinking again…there’s always a lot of courage when you’re drunk

There’s something to this and you’re the first to hear about it. Aging scares many people. So does retirement. We shouldn’t be afraid of either. But we are. And the end result is we avoid thinking about endings. Have already begun changing that… been working on it for 3.5 years so far…

Here’s what I’m saying (you should be saying it too)

can it be that simple?

I’m going to come out and say what most people already understand. The gift of my blogs is that I ask the right questions. Questions that every adult ought to have a ready answer for. If you had an answer for June 8th’s question, bravo. If ya didn’t – you’re welcome…. for the reminder.
