Initiative

Last summer was an experiment in working together inside Glacier National Park. This summer will be a continuation highlighted by lessons learned and the opportunities discovered.

You used initiative to come and tell me where you were on the video project rather than having me come to you and ask you for an update.

Condensing a 21-minute video into 59 seconds or less is no easy task, especially knowing the goal is for it to “sizzle”.

Initiative is fairly rare, hence valuable.

In business.

In personal life.

Please remember your small victory (an extra inch), for life is transformed by the innumerable small victories (extra inches) achieved throughout life.

No really

Wanna work?

She wrote Eat, Pray, Love. Then gave a TED talk on a stage with no red dot.

Wanna work?

What is work?

Seriously, what i do rarely feels like work.

Not anymore.

After 60 years, seems like it’s about time to feel that work doesn’t feel like work.

Stumble is as stumble does

Consulting framework
A sheet of paper, three hand-drawn lines (was 6 boxes) and then brainstorm the DNA of past, present, future. The future isn’t listed on this sheet (yet).

Stumble is as stumble does.

Preparing a business proposal for a local client, an aha moment appeared.

What if two of the five time-tested Disney business blueprints were saved for the future?

Never thought of it this way until yesterday, May 10, 2019.

Son, the beauty of a relentless pursuit of excellence is that ideas never stop appearing. Some ideas are contagious and need little (or no) time to appear. Other ideas take decades.

The view from space changes you in a profound way

 

 

 

 

 

Viewing earth from outer space changes you.

Ask any astronaut.

But what about mere mortals on earth?

As we watched this yesterday, 120-seconds in we needed to stop…and i immediately had an epiphany – Glacier National Park is my version of outer space.

The one obvious place no one looks for solutions

Grinnell Glacier Trail
Grinnell Glacier Trail, August 29, 2017, with Howard Doran (college fraternity brother).

 

The best solution is not where everyone is already looking.
