May the sky always be the limit for the dreamers

Bob Iger quote
Read the italic quote. Powerful, no?

May the sky always be the limit for the dreamers.

That is all.

That is enough.

One Simple Tip to Avoid Waiting

Want a tip to help you resist the urge to wait? In a moment, I’ll share what happened last month, what I did about it, and how it impacted my leadership philosophy.

But it’s a double edge sword isn’t it?  If consistency is the hallmark of quality, and continuous improvement is the key to becoming world class, how do you balance risk and reward?

Faced with a opportunity to do something the way I’ve always done it, or a way I’ve been dreaming about but always chicken out, I was once again presented the opportunity, but was afraid I’d pass on it again.

But not this time.  Finally choose the way I had envisioned.

It was amazingly exhilarating!  Why?  Which is a good question because the thing I did differently, was actually very small in the big scheme of things.

Then why was it exhilarating?  Because conquering a small fear builds the confidence to conquer another small fear.

Eventually, the fears that get conquered are bigger and bigger, until we are faced with very little fear that we can’t act on.

Well, we will always come across scary things, but the confidence to confront and conquer is a priceless ROI for small risk taking habit.

The key, the simple tip – “Do at least one thing each day that scares you.”

Overcoming Disability

Overcoming disability.  Yes.  An invisible disability.  For real.

Spoke a week ago about overcoming addiction. and that I’d elaborate on that.  Not quite ready too.

Meanwhile, thought I’d layer on another challenging situation I’ve worked through.  Overcoming disability.

Not ready to elaborate on that either.

It almost makes me angry, the vibe I get from people who think I have no idea what darkness and dispair look like. What impossible odds look like.  What fear and self-doubt look like.

I can almost hear people say, “You talk a good talk Jeff, but you have no idea what I’m going through”.

We have a saying in the small Pennsylvania town I grow up in, “Bullcrap”!

Writing this makes me stronger.  Hope reading it makes you stronger.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂
