The jar has been there for 18 years

Bead jar jeff noel
Final bead comes out today. The bear jar has been on my desk for 18 years.

 

The jar has been there for 18 years.

The jar was filled with 936 small beads – one bead for every weekend in an 18-year old’s life.

Our Son turns 18 tomorrow.

i have a calendar appointment for every Saturday labeled “take a bead”.

Today is Saturday.

The jar in the photo above is now empty.

July is almost over (again)

Disney Keynote Speaker
Yesterday at my desk, working with a speaker bureau, snapped this pic and texted it to her. Dory is her second favorite character. i don’t have her favorite, Ariel.

 

July is almost over (again).

Fascinated by daily life, how to prioritize it, and how to be willing to take the risks necessary to test your priorities.

We often have the right priorities but in the wrong order.

Some of our “tests” take years or decades to determine if they are in the correct order.

A career may be a priority.

Making as much money (climbing the ladder) as you can (at all costs) may be a priority.

Perhaps it might come to your attention (through failed health or broken relationships) that a career is a great priority, but climbing the ladder isn’t.

Are you the laughing stock of the time management gurus?

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Wisdom comes from experience and experience comes from making mistakes. This makes me very wise.

 

Are you the laughing stock of the time management gurus?

Without creating new, intentional structure and processes for managing your priorities (time, energy), you deny yourself steady personal development.

The cumulative loss from our wasted (unintentional) years is regretful.

Time is the great equalizer

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Time waits for no one.

 

Time is the great equalizer.

This is a major reason for self-reflection.

Pause and think about why for a few moments.

You’re welcome.

Real wealth, timeless wealth, universal wealth is this – being at peace with who you are and being content with what you have.
