Memento Mori

Mountains
Ascending Ahern Peak. Few people attempt this because it’s deep in the wilderness. In a perfect world, it would be cool to go even deeper in, this Summer.

Memento Mori…

Remember that you are going to die.

Carpe diem…

Seize the day.

Why?

Because if you don’t, you may never get the chance.

That is a crappy way to die.

Negativity stems from neglect

Jeff noel's action/common sense matrix
Action solves many things. Self-reflection is action. Our next choice is action. Being positive in this present moment is action.

Negativity stems from neglect.

Neglect leads to regret.

Regret leads to negative self talk.

Positive people turn regret to action.

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Painful self-reflection

Lakeside Baptist Church Pastor Russ
Lakeside Baptist Church, October 17, 2021. Russ is Lakeside Church’s lead Pastor. He welcomed everyone to yesterday’s 9:30 AM service. He did not preach a sermon though.

Medicated, entertained, and distracted.

On things, people, and beliefs.

Self-reflection is easily avoided.

This is the root of all personal (and organization) issues.

You’re in charge.

Congrats for being one of the outliers who is prepared for Covid and is not only surviving, but thriving.

Three Little Pigs karma

Glacier Red Bus tour
Received notice yesterday of Glacier National Park’s backcountry camping permit lottery. This inspired today’s photos.

Bad companies are destroyed by crisis, good companies survive them, great companies are improved by them. —Andy Grove

Same with people.

Me.

You.

Where do we fall in the “3 little pigs spectrum”?

First, i believe right now is an opportunity of a lifetime.

We get a world (or region) catastrophe every 10-20 years. We can see the event as a crisis or a celebration. Seeing a catastrophe as a celebration doesn’t change what has happened, it only personally changes what happens next.

Proverbial wakeup call.

Wakeup calls are a gift when you have a growth mindset.

Three Little Pigs karma: the wolf couldn’t blow down the house made of stone. Congrats on building the Pig’s positive mental attitude (house of stone).

Covid19 turning point

Grocery store empty shelves
Yesterday afternoon (5 hours ahead of President Trump’s Nationwide message about European air travel ban) at the grocery store. Had inside intel advice to head to store sooner rather than later. Toilet paper was almost gone.

Adversity doesn’t develop character, it reveals it.

Not talking about daily adversity.

Talking about Covid19 and other world catastrophes (remember 9/11?).

The adverse event is the test, not the studying (development).

Optional development can occur after you receive your test score.
