Editor’s note; This was written Sept 22.

What makes a writer choose category names? Say, the category ‘Life Transition (Dec 2014)‘.

December is a transition in life. Which leads us to…

Two of the most ordinary days on the calendar are two of the most extraordinary…

What do October 1 and December 5 have in common?

Two of Walt Disney’s birthdays.

Walt Disney World – October 1, 1971.

Walt Disney – December 5, 1901.

And in 10 days, October 1, a life changing announcement from Mid Life Celebration.

Is it possible to live above reproach?

(photo: Writing and posting prolifically sort of definitely makes you transparent… it also induces intense self-reflection)

Reproach: To live with shame or disgrace.

Above reproach, the opposite of living with shame or disgrace..

Is this possible?

First, to be crystal clear, it doesn’t mean living without sin.

Living above reproach means something for elders to aspire to.

As leaders.

As teachers.

And always, which seems impossible, with deep humility, gratitude, and conviction.

The only, repeat only, way to know if it’s possible is to try.

Without Limits in 2015?

It’s only September 20, 2014 yet the thought of blowing the roof off of 2015 is so powerful…

To be able to look ahead with incredible anticipation, and without limits, is a freedom we can condition ourselves to expect and deliver on.

It will require extraordinary focus.

If we want it, we will have to do the hard work.

We know this.

And the bonus to it all is that the journey is our reward…

We may never do what we set out to do, but believing we can is what sets us on fire.

PS. Do what we’ve always done and we get what we’ve always received. Write posts 100 days before they go live and who knows what will happen. How exciting is that?

She said, he said

Lone Star College

 

(photo: So many people have incredibly inspiring dreams for a great life… get ready to work your butt off, right?)

Went into the day yesterday on a mission – to gently, yet directly, rattle the cage of every person in the audience.

A snippet when it was over…

Her: That was a kick ass presentation.

Him: What?

Her: I’m trying not to be ordinary in describing how much today meant to me.

Him: Smiling, said nothing.

She had learned, and was now practicing, the whole point of the day.

Lead differently.

No bull crap…. bullseye.

Houston, we have a problem, our attitude stinks.

Can you imagine starting each day consciously or subconsciously thinking this?

By the way, greetings from Houston.
