In praise of slowness (video)

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Is it possible to make being uncomfortable your comfort zone?

 

The truth hurts and the truth can set you free.

How often do you drive the speed limit?

Seriously.

How often?

This question is really asking, “How often do you break the law?”

This TED Talk is much deeper and highly recommended.

But alas, you’re too busy.

Hurry on your way, i get it (and eventually, speed gets us).

One of the easiest ways to reduce stress

early morning work
A two-year-old smile-worthy FaceBook “memory” hit my feed yesterday.

 

One of the easiest ways to reduce stress is to lower our standards.

This is a short-term solution.

Very effective.

At some future point (a month, years, or decades even) the temporarily relieved stress can come back with a vengeance in the form of regret.

Life is hard.

Because life is hard, study, learn, apply, teach, and excel at a positive attitude.

At various times in life, setting the bar low could develop into an insidious lifetime habit.

Setting your bar low might seem reasonable, appropriate, and motivating.

Long-term, it’s anything but.

Honey, It's For You

The stress that happiness brings

Walt Disney World Leadership
Yesterday, lunch at Magic Kingdom.

 

Anxiety has always been an adulthood prerequisite.

Anxiety generally increases from our school-age years to our early twenties as we take on adult responsibilities.

Anxiety generally falls steadily over the rest of our life as we learn to cope with being the CEO of You, Inc.

Could people who lead meaningful lives be more susceptible to anxiety?

Steven Pinker wrote this article: The World Is An Amazing Place So Why Aren’t We Happier?

Hate to break it to you

Quickbooks app
Want to rewind the clock to a simpler, easier, less stressful time?

 

Hate to break it to you…

A busy, stressful life is nothing new.

What’s new are the categories.

Neanderthal survival (time-consuming)  has been replaced with managing our finances – also known as having a job (time-consuming).

The best we can do is to do our best

Disney leadership keynote speaker
Make no small plans, for they have no power to stir your soul.

 

My feeling overwhelmed is mostly kept at bay. Mostly under control.

For a month or so, it’s reached a level i haven’t felt in a long time.

i don’t like it.
