Taking risks is risky

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Risks make progress possible.

 

Taking risks is risky, so is playing it safe.

A stone in your hand beats an insidious habit

Tijuana Flats
Home kitchen vs restaurant. Photo: Last night at the brand new Tijuana Flats near home. The portions are bigger than Chipotle and Qdoba.

 

Our mindset can be blind to the same questionable behaviors we easily identify in others…

This Mid Life Celebration post (about the chicken and pig commitment to breakfast) from two days ago prompted a brief conversation which included the following:

Eric:   …I think bacon cooks better in the oven.

me:   Probably…1 button and 3 minutes later…

Eric:   …oh yes the instant gratification generation

me:   Car vs horse, internet vs book, ovens vs fires, farming vs grocery store, Amazon vs main street…be careful in a glass house when you have a stone in your hand. 😁

It was fun to .think .differently

Luck is when preparation meets Google keyword search

Orlando Office building
Met client at 7:30am yesterday.

 

The call came in less than 48 hours ago.

Didn’t answer it because it wasn’t in my contacts.

Forgot about it for the rest of the workout and later checked voice mail.

Played the voice message…

“Our “Disney Way” Keynote Speaker has the flu and can’t make our annual meeting, which begins at 9:00am tomorrow.”

Less than 24 hours notice yet only a 45-minute drive from my home.

Still can’t get over this dramatic change in behavior

jeff noel's email management
Empowerment accomplished at 9:03pm last night.

Freedom.

 

 

jeff noel's email management
Emptied every night for more than a year and counting.

 

 

Still can’t get over this dramatic change in behavior. Thirteen months ago in preparation for a Summer Writer’s retreat on Sanibel Island, i emptied my email inbox, sent folder, and trash folder.

Never intended for it to last.

Surprise!

That was July 1, 2015.

Every night since then (like 419 consecutive nights) i’ve zero’d out those three email folders.

My mornings have never been the same.

Without realizing it, i was starting everyday behind. Doing yesterday’s (or the day or days before) work before i could launch what needs to get done today.

Would this one thing make me happy?

What if i was doing what i loved?

Would that make me happier?

How does one figure out what one loves to do?

And how long should one keep searching?
