Do or do not

Dreams require risks. Risks require failure. Failure enables growth. Growth enables dreams.

Do or do not do the work.

Is there a third choice?

No, from my six decades on this planet. i have discovered my own truths. Truths many others embrace, and at the same time, many others shun. Right or wrong, we need to commit. i am committed to my truth – which may grow and develop as more years teach more lessons.

Some might say that doing some but not all of the work is doing the work, and i say that doing the work is like a marriage, you are 100% committed or you are not committed. Cheating means failing.

At some point, i deemed my being faithful to a positive attitude was all or nothing.

Cheating by being impatient, unkind, angry, and negative means i have failed.

i do not like that type of failure.

Failing from calculated risk taking inspires me.

Needed to say all of this to clear up any doubt about my intimate relationship with failure.

Different day, same old same old

Another day on your horizon. Day after day, until we run out. Photo: yesterday approaching Sanford, FL airport.

‪Knowing and not doing is the same as not knowing.‬

‪Nothing changes when nothing changes.‬

Different day, same old same old.

Habits.

Rituals.

Yesterday you said, tomorrow.

Surprise, today is yesterday’s tomorrow.

How bad do you want excellence?

How great is the mental nutrition you feed your attitude?

If it truly is great, the way to make it even greater is to teach another and teach them long enough to see the transformation.

Ten weeks until we all get a fresh decade.

You thinking about it?

Note, when this goes live on December 21, 2019, we’ll all be looking at a 10-day countdown versus a 10-week countdown.

Truth be told, i’ve been thinking about it for a couple years already, asking myself:

  • What’s next?
  • What if?
  • Who can help?
  • What does the world need that only i can provide?
  • What do i do better, differently, or both, than anyone else in the world?
  • How do i market it?
  • Is it worth it to follow this path?

This is your choice whether you believe it or not

Disney Leadership thesis
Teaching this Disney business insight changed my life and continues to drive personal transformation.

This is your choice whether you believe it or not.

What?

Waiting and doing nothing.

Everyone wants to get better

Grinnell Glacier Overlook hike
Granite Park Chalet. Every day i’m looking at flights, waiting for airfare to drop.

 

Literally everyone wants to get better.

Yet few people are willing to spend their lives to make it happen.

Why?

Part of the process gets lost or is never learned…

  • Without a sense of accomplishment and contribution, we stagnate and struggle to survive.
  • With a consistent sense of contribution and accomplishment, we grow and thrive.

We must learn the value of a lofty goal, persistent effort, and managing doubt.

When an especially busy patch of work hits you

Bird poop on car
Last night in Red Lobster parking lot, the vehicle next to ours.

 

When an especially busy patch of work hits you:

  • Do your best
  • Stay focused
  • Know that this too shall pass
  • Find the inherent, invisible, and bountiful blessings
  • Don’t break under the pressure
  • Remember that life naturally ebbs and flows

Learn from this experience and be a little better at handling pressure next time.
