in the hundreds of visits to Apple stores, jeff noel never thought the floors were remarkable

Nuwanda attended a meeting in which a person got very serious and direct about being “world class”. Condescending in tone, actually. As if they had a clue about actually, personally being world class.
And yet this condescending person, by any measurable standard, is completely
not world class.
Who among us is qualified to talk about “world class” performance anyway? Someone who’s read a lot of books?
You’re kidding, right?
And what stops us from applying world class to everything, not only what we have a passion for?
“Think about that”, Nuwanda said…
wow, that’s a lot of metaphorical fear and confusion
what a contrast, how does she do it?
Two key reasons our professional life should be completely imbalanced:
the time we spend protecting ourselves from fear and confusion is high
the time we spend being creative, insanely productive, and leading is low
should be imbalanced, opposite of above.

amazing what you can observe simply by paying attention
Serenity and hidden Mickey’s? Yes. Both have a special place in my soul. Doing work inspired by a man and his mouse results in a serenity uncommon in a loud, busy world.

when do adults give up trying to be the example for their children?
Our obligation to be a leader is tested when we come to this daily crossroads, when we have the choice between doing what’s easy (nothing) and doing what’s challenging (required).
In the photo above, I can’t help but wonder how many adults watching feel an overwhelming sense of obligation to show the children in their life that work life balance is possible, and a non-negotiable.

This only happens once in a lifetime…
At the end of the day, parents are more bonus eligible when they are active and visible… at the small events that make up a life…
In business, at the end of the day, success is measured by bottom line financial health.
What if you’ve got large numbers in the bank but you
also have them on your health chart? No man on my Dad’s side has lived past 60.
