Mental F&D

Art is being present. Present to notice the shadow of one mountain (the one we are ascending) climbing up a mountain a couple miles away.

Mental F&D.

Mental focus and discipline.

This is how growth mindset is honed and mastered.

Positive focus

Your #1 job is to be an example, not a warning.

Think about what’s possible, don’t think about what’s not possible.

Vibrant is as

thistle weed
This plant (which many Americans label a weed) is extraordinarily vibrant in this photo.

Exquisitely vibrant. Boldly vibrant. As each of us can strive to be. Take our cue from Nature.

Vibrant is as vibrant does.

Sounds elementary.

Totally get it.

Remember, not-vibrant is as not-vibrant does.

You are a product of your habits.

Period.

Lean into discomfort

clothes for a suitcase
Will never again wear a business suit for a speech. Jeans, untucked shirt, possibly a jacket, and undoubtedly, running shoes.

Lean into discomfort means trying things that may not work.

Before you try something you have to think it up.

Lean into uncomfortable thoughts.

Particularly thoughts that come with no guarantee of working.

Thoughts that might get you laughed at, or ostracized.

Smile with your thoughts today

two men in a boat
College buddy Howard and me in 2017 on Lake McDonald. We are smiling because we are having an experience we would rather not have because of forest fires and it is awesome. We adapted and overcame and had a once-in-a-lifetime experience on the lake. We didn’t go to Glacier to boat, we went to hike.

Smile with your thoughts today.

And by today, that means everyday.

Magic, remember?

But you already knew that.
