As we age, one goal becomes clearer

High School senior banquet last night.

The first time attending a high school senior banquet.

A once-in-a-lifetime passage for some.

As we age, one goal becomes clearer…

The goal is not to eliminate struggle, but to have the mental capacity to weather every struggle; and to seek assistance when we are stuck.

One of our biggest challenges is to struggle with things we can’t control.

This challenging struggle exists because we either doubt we can influence or we fear we can’t influence.

We get better at discerning controllable and not controllable as we age, because aging inherently suggests we’ve experienced more.

More experience generally equals more wisdom.

Of course there are exceptions.

More wisdom generally means an improved batting average.

Crisis or celebration?

Last night.
Busy doing nothing.

You are in charge of your choices.

Dispute this if you must.

If you do, who then decides for you if it isn’t you who is in charge of your choices?

So yes, we are in charge of the thought-choices, and action-choices, we make.

You may feel you have no choice but to live and work where you live and work, yet you will never convince me that you aren’t in charge of the choices you make about your thoughts.

The thoughts you pick pick you.

Crisis or celebration?

Where you are now and where you want to be may be different.

That’s okay.

Life is a journey and if privileged, you get to age and if you get to age, that means you have time to hone your beliefs, crystallize your values, and have your behaviors align with your values and beliefs.

Happy birthday Disneyland, but more importantly…

Happy birthday Disneyland, but more importantly…

Today we retire a 15-year daily after-school tradition.

Hugging and sharing an “I love you” before getting in the car to leave school.

It was a great run.

Not sorry to see it go, so grateful we kept it alive all these years.

Thank you for never feeling self-conscious, especially in Middle and High School.

Note: No school bus service and no teenager car created a drop-off and pickup routine for our son’s entire life up to and including today.

What is your attitude about mornings?

This is a bright and sunny morning. Never gets old. St Mary (South-Eastern entrance).

What is your attitude about mornings?

We reap what we sow.

No one ever (repeat, ever) coached me to gravitate to becoming a morning person.

In hindsight, someone, a morning person, could have influenced me with their conviction and personal-life vibrancy results.

Four decades went by and i discovered it by accident when i became a speaker at Disney Institute in 1999.

Son, trust me, gravitate to becoming a morning person. Do what you need/want to do, but know i’ve done it all and mornings are where the gold is.

.do .differently

Brainstorming yesterday, May 14, 2019.
The original thought was, What would a slide look like in a speech where i gave the audience the essence, yet kept the slide simple?

What’s the bottom line when you .think .differently ?

.do .differently

The courage required to put action behind thoughts is what separates you from being a spectator in life or being a full-on participant.
