Emotion Trumps Everything

You have been promoted, effective immediately

WordPress coffee talk meeting in Winter Garden this morning at 830AM. It requires a 30-minute one way drive.

You have been promoted, effective immediately.

Congrats, in addition to your lifelong title as CEO of You, Inc., you have three new titles:

  • CLO – Chief Leadership Officer
  • CMO – Chief Motivation Officer
  • CTO – Chief Trust Officer

Go forth and prosper.

Final 120 Days

First order of every day

A High School full of bright minds. Never allow common sense to be anything less than common practice.

First order of every day?

Make your bed.

It’s your bed and your responsibility.

It takes less than a minute (less than 30 seconds if you want to get technical).

Share one legitimate reason for not doing this every single morning.

Exactly.

There is no legitimate reason.

There are people who will never live in a home with electricity, clean running water, indoor toilets, refrigerated food and showers, let alone a nice, cozy, comfy bed.

Son, you’re the CEO of You, Inc.

Never go to class with an unmade bed.

Being Brave

Why waiting to get picked is a flawed proposition

VIP Disney parking
Yesterday after lunch. Heading to Main Street USA.

Disney's Emporium
Disney’s Emporium logo.

Disney Cast Pins
Yesterday at The Emporium, had a delightful conversation with a 32-years of Service Cast Member, and a Walt Disney Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

Magic Kingdom parade
Magic Kingdom parade is at 2 o’Clock instead of 3 o’Clock during the holidays.

Here’s what i learned about waiting to be picked.

It’s never gonna happen.

You can wait decades.

It still won’t happen.

The solution?

Pick yourself.

True or false?

i’m going to finish my fourth fiscal year away from Disney earning more and doing it in half the time.

Dear Son

Dear Son, thank you for last night’s extended conversation

Disney Keynote Speakers
So yeah, in this photo, i’m thinking this may be my last view of Logan Pass. And i’m aware there could be many more, but i am living as if 2018 is my last Summer there.

 

Things in your life will either be better than you expect or less than you expect.

We do not have a crystal ball to tell us exactly how the future will unfold.

This is called a blinding flash of the obvious.

But this little gem, below, isn’t obvious (even though it is)…

When “bad things” happen, rejoice that good things also happen – and in ways that are much better than we could have imagined.

Focus on this yin and yang.

Both extremes teach us.

Be a great and grateful student.

Why?

Because if you aren’t, think deeply about what you get as the opposite.

Anyone Else Think Like This?

The awkward and correct answer is “no”

Texting and driving
This used to be me. Phone in hand in busy rush hour traffic. Texting and driving. Photo: Less than 24 hours ago at a 30-lane intersection near Interstate 4 and Universal Studios. Also two blocks from my gym. There is a car seat in back too, but it was empty.

 

The awkward and correct answer is “no”.

Tough love.

CEO of You, Inc.

Danger – codependency.

Obviously, life is hard.

It’s our job to figure it out.

The long way is the short cut.
