Dear Son

What were you born to do?

Disney Keynote Speaker
Met neighbor’s new Boxer puppy.

 

Disney Keynote Speakers
Artemus is the epitome of joy. My teaching is designed and delivered to be the epitome of hope.

 

Can you answer the following question? Yes.

What were you born to do? Teach.

If you aren’t aware yet, take your time but don’t wait. Ok. It took 40 years to finally discover my purpose.

Have you already discovered your purpose in life? Yes, in 1999. i was 40.

How did it feel when you answered your calling? The catalyst was a 1999 Disney Institute (DI) Business Programs Facilitator job offer, and, becoming a parent in 2000. By the way, i never wanted to be a DI speaker.

What was life like before that time? It felt good, but by comparison to today, it was status quo, going through the motions, sleep-walking through life. i had insidiously carved a deep rut into what had originally begun as “finding my groove in life”, somewhere in my early 30s. i was blindly ambitious and inadequate at seeing my many blinds spots.

What do you dislike about teaching? The reality that you can’t be a prophet in your hometown.

What do you love about teaching?  The reality that i provide a catalytic opportunity for people and organizations to transform.

Here are common challenges you will/are/did face on your life’s journey:

  • The change might surprise you.
  • The change might not work.
  • There are no short cuts.
  • You might be able to see a different way forward.
  • Change, generally, is uncomfortable and unwelcomed.
  • This puts a lot of pressure on you to keep doing the safe thing – status quo.

A Summer of Questions

Most likely, you’re boring them

sales
From a phone conversation months ago. Make your culture one in which sales is the only logical response after potential customers interact with you.

 

Remember, if you look out at your audience and they look bored, you’re boring them.

Been working hard all Summer trying to crack the code with unresponsive business professionals.

How can i make it easy (and fun?) for them to simply let me know if they are interested in a conversation?

How about a self-addressed, stamped envelope with one of two check box choices:

  1. No, not interested, please go away.
  2. Yes, i see the obvious potential so let’s keep going.

What do you think?

A Summer of Questions

Will you stop excelling?

Lee Cockerell window
Second favorite window.

 

Walt Disney window
Favorite window.

 

Walt Disney window
Walter Elias Disney’s window faces Cinderella Castle and many Guests never see it.

 

Cast window
Third favorite window is “my” window. By the way, the hike was intended to rack up some mileage before next week’s hiking (and writing) trip to Glacier.

 

Main Street clock
My work was done by 8:10 AM.

 

Will you stop excelling?

You literally get paid the same whether you do extra work or not.

This is assuming you are paid by the hour. If you are salaried, or you own your own business, the story is quite different.

Being on your own, extra work doesn’t automatically equate to extra pay.

Why?

Because you may be working hard on the wrong things.

Do you have a vision of the future that portrays you as working for someone or working for yourself?
