It’s not a priority sounds like this

Thank you note
Wrote this two days ago and tucked it under Chapin’s blanket so he’d see it before falling asleep.

‘It’s not a priority”, sounds like the following whether we say these two things or not…

  1. i don’t have time.
  2. i can’t afford it.

When something is a priority, we figure out a solution. If we don’t figure out a solution, it’s not a priority.

The beauty in writing and talking about your priorities

Wells Fargo mistakes
Yes, please, at my convenience, and from my phone. (but your limitations won’t allow me to.)

 

Wells Fargo mistakes
Yes, please. (but instead, it requires about an hour to drive to and from your closest branch to do what the app won’t permit)

 

The podcast i did two days ago was only the fourth ever, and the first time with someone other than Jody Maberry.

It was also the first, by design, where i didn’t talk specifically about Disney.

What i’m reflecting on right now is how long today’s posts are and how i don’t want to do that here or at the next blog.

Today’s insight?

Writing and talking about what’s important to you really forces you to become clear – and clarity is power.

He’s crazy which is perfect

Disney Keynote Speakers
Grinnell Glacier Overlook 2016 with Dave Weir. Hope he can make it back in 2018.

 

Hoping to return to Glacier National Park – my CEO wants me to make it my top Summer 2018 priority.

He says it’s unofficially my final Summer on our planet.

He’s crazy.

Which is perfect.

The time to plan for our priorities is before we need to.
