Do you understand your Next + ?

Do you understand your Next + ?

So your Next is your big, multi-year goal/vision. It’s as big a goal or vision as you can ever dream up.

Super-hero big.

My first Next, at age 50, was a 10-year vision to do everything in life i wanted to do if i only lived to my 60th birthday.

Now, at 60, there’s a new Next.

It’s a three-year Next, taking me to my 63rd birthday.

The + is a wild card, diamond in the rough kind of karma.

It’s an accentuated risk taking commitment.

It’s a burn the ships commitment.

It is helping me process a potentially lucrative contract against the work-focus that will be required.

With only 2.5 years left in this Next, a lucrative deal has to be something that happens in the next few days and something that signals to me that the CEO is burning the ships.

The potential to transform a company and the industry they service is intoxicating.

But, and this is a huge but (no pun intended), 99% CEO commitment won’t work.

There is no way to lose

i come from a long line of dreamers and doers.

There is no way to fail if your attitude is focused on positive learning and development.

No matter what happens today, it will be a victory.

Taking risks is risky. So is playing it safe.

Only preach what you practice.

.think .differently

Sweet.

What Are You Waiting For?

Playing it safe is risky

Untuckit store in Orlando
If shoes change dramatically, so will everything else. Exciting. Risky.

Playing it safe is risky.

Looking to retire a lifetime wardrobe of Disney business suites for something new.

Why?

Old school thinking (business suit and tie) is now my choice to embrace or discard.

i’m in charge of everything.

Everything?

Yes.

Such as travel structure and processes.

Think simple, lean, easy, scalable.

To structure travel using only a small day-hike backpack, drastic changes need to happen.

To stay active while traveling, i need running shoes.

To also carry business dress shoes is cumbersome and redundant. Why have two pairs of shoes for a short trip?

This means being onstage in running shoes.

This fundamentally changes everything about my personal brand.

Can you imagine me speaking for Disney Institute in running shoes?

Only one way in and i almost didn’t take it

Trilogy Health Service
While waiting for an Omni Convention Concierge employee to return with the Omni Convention Director’s business card, i scanned Trilogy’s website.

Only one way to get to this place…open the door and walk in.

 

Michael Jr
Michael Jr travels with a camera crew sometimes?

 

Omni Louisville
Best Hotel in town? Maybe.

 

Only one way into the room where laughter from 600 people was emanating.

And i almost didn’t take it.

Dear Son

Go Entrepreneur, go

Gapingvoid art
Favorite cartoonist Hugh McLeod. Yesterday’s email came with the message above.

 

Go Entrepreneur, go.

The first big word associated with entrepreneur that i’d add is…

Purpose

 

Your purpose, once convicted, will drive everything else.

Without a noble purpose, failure is guaranteed.
