Authenticity as currency

Three men In the mountains
Closed eyes, bright sun. Ahkil and Djuan loved the Glacier i shared with them. Such a joy to see others feel the splendid wonder of the wild.

Roughly a dozen years ago when Mid Life Celebration, LLC was incorporated (2009), was inspired to write…

Authenticity is the new currency.

Now, 13 years later, inspired to write…

Authenticity as currency.

Authenticity is not new.

Authenticity is the new currency” felt new in 2009.

Yet’s it’s been around “forever”.

There are people who use authenticity as a currency. They base their personal and professional brands on being authentic. (i aspire to be one of those people)

They don’t need to tell you they are bold and .think .differently

You figure it out for yourself simply by listening to them, and, especially by watching them.

Prolific opportunities

Prolific opportunities…

When you write everyday, without missing a single day, Magic happens.

Additionally, when you do this in an extra-ordinary way, for 13 consecutive years, something beyond Magic happens.

i cannot explain it to you because it’s extra-ordinary. It’s territory only i’ve reached (in this genre, blogging). But the hope is that you can discern an important and unique message that speaks to you – something in its own way, something crazy.

One thing to share now – and the reason for this post – is the daily opportunity to think on “public-paper”.

Not private thoughts, only swimming in my head.

Not private thoughts, only shared with a single confidant.

Not private thoughts printed, but filed away where no one will ever see.

But private thoughts that are publicly shared with the entire world.

Wrap your head around how crazy (out-of-place) that sounds.

Wrap your head around ways this radical concept (private yet globally public – that doesn’t even make sense, but in my head, it does) benefits the artist. Today’s other four posts explore this as it unpacks inside my brain in real time.

Wait, wait, don’t tell me

Disney security entrance at Hotel
Went for a walk, intentionally headed to here.

It’s no secret my speaking fees are high-end.

Why?

My extensive and storied Disney package and ridiculously broad experience from being inside 2,000 other organizations to varying degrees of depth.

Read the next two lines slowly and let it sink in.

You are paying me for access to me, by anyone, for anything.

This is like hitting the proverbial lottery.

Disney Keynotes and such

Yesterday’s walk through a neighborhood to Magic Kingdom. Prophetic.

Disney Keynotes and such:

Keynotes, half-days, full-days, multi-days, and custom configurations.

Five pillars with 19 architectural blueprints.

Signature content pillar is Disney’s world-class, time-tested Customer Service.

What about your Summer?

Grinnell Lake
Grinnell Lake from the Grinnell Glacier Trail, 2019.

In the midst of Covid-19 lock down, there are several lifetime firsts, here’s the situation at home:

  • Cheryl home constantly (retired last month)
  • Chapin home constantly (college closed until Fall)
  • Literally unemployed until conferences resume
  • Rainy day fund is sufficient to sustain normal life
  • Mandatory home quarantine for 2 weeks, minimum

While a majority are scrambling, many frantically, with their business, that is not happening here at home.

It is, as stated yesterday, a childlike opportunity.

  • Little responsibility
  • Ample time
  • Abundant creativity
  • No business pressure

Will this lead to something Magical?
