May you someday get to make decisions based on passion and joy, not money and security.

On an executive coaching call yesterday, a major decision came down to one of two choices. And using an analogy from the 1984 Olympic Ice Hockey ‘documentary movie’, Miracle, do you pursue defeating the Russians (for the first time anyone has in 20 years) or do you take the contract to be the head coach for an NHL team?

Waiting has a place

halloween decoration at home
Last night, waiting for trick-or-treaters.

Paradox is a great accountability tool.

dad

Waiting has a place.

For a sunset or sunrise.

For a harvest.

For a shade tree from an acorn.

Then there’s the paradox.

You know what i’m talking about.

The waiting instigated by doubt, fear, inexperience, etc.

All the reasons waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings for self-defeat.

Nine year Disney retirement anniversary

17-second video: Jody Maberry and i recorded an episode

dad

Note: There are nearly two additional years of service that are lost in the career storyline. Doesn’t matter. i used to think it did.

Now, i’m just so grateful to have ever been granted the opportunity to begin serving there in January 1982.

Regret’s truth

Apple Watch in a waiting room
i will never regret visiting my dermatologist. Began as an annual visit. Then biannually. And now, triannually.

Regret is inevitable but it doesn’t need to be a lifelong sidekick.

dad

Wisdom comes from experience.

Experience comes from making mistakes.

True wisdom is living with far fewer mistakes.

Is it possible you can eliminate or alleviate making mistakes?

If your goal isn’t impossible you’re not reaching high enough.

Insight: Keep making lifelong “mistakes”, but from small, creative ideas. Reach a point, and sustain it for your lifetime, where you never make a costly mistake.
