Who’s in charge of your life?

Granite Park Chalet schedule
After one day, Granite Park Chalet is nearly filled. There are still 300 reservation requests in the que. The initial 500 requests in the first five minutes will sell out the entire season.

Who’s in charge of your life?

Everything that’s working well is your success.

Everything that is a mess is your fault.

Don’t take this personally.

Just realize how true it is and find a million ways to let go of things getting in your way of running a better business (of your life).

You are the CEO of You, Inc.

Ain’t no one else’s job but yours.

You’re welcome.

Daily distractions and “Squirrel” are synonymous

Disney speaker jeff
Yesterday walking home from gym.  Distractions are everywhere. Reasoning (excuses?) is easy. Can you say, “Squirrel!”?

Yesterday and this morning:

Did you hit the snooze button?

Did you get at least an hour of outside sunlight?

Sleep late?

Exercise?

Floss last night?

Driven by digital notifications?

Wakeup without a plan?

Dwell on problems?

How much quiet time did you get?

Dinner at least three hours before sleep?

Good breakfast?

Sugar intake?

Help someone who will never know you helped?

Can you imagine saying the appropriate yes, or no, to these? Every day?

i think you should.

Conform or face the consequences

Tibet Butler Nature Preserve
Conform or face the consequences.

 

Conform or face the consequences. You know, stay on the trails. Don’t go on this tempting path because you are not authorized.

What would happen if you authorized yourself to do anything you wanted to try? The caveat being it can’t be immoral, unsafe, or hateful.

What would happen to you?

Maybe you’d change in the way you dream of.

You’re still dreaming, right?

Burn the ship of fear

Buena Vista Palace at World Disney World

 

Construction company trailer

 

(photo: Last night leaving the parking lot at Buena Vista Palace in Walt Disney World. Cortes? Burn the ships? Yes!)

Everyone is afraid. Not everyone lets fear become an excuse.

A thought from Troy Tyler:

“Strat­egy is all about com­mit­ment,” says Tyler. “If what you’re doing isn’t irrev­o­ca­ble, then you don’t have a strat­egy — because any­one can do it. That’s why burn­ing the boats is so impor­tant. I’ve always wanted to treat life like I was an invad­ing army and there was no turn­ing back.”

Boldness has genius.

PS. What are the odds that tucked at the far edge of a hotel parking lot at Walt Disney World there’d be Cortes’ trailer?

Do we show up everyday with compelling questions?

Midlife Celebration book at Disneyland

 

Do we show up everyday with compelling questions?

Great questions that challenge authority (our own as well as other’s) and status quo.

Or does the way life has a habit of beating us down, making us fearful of looking stupid and out of place…

… does that encourage us to put our heads down and slog through another long day?

Everyday.

We all need someone to tell us we have a choice each day.

And that our choice is valid, and admirable, and worth overcoming hesitation (fear).

We need someone to encourage us, convince us, and cheer for us.

There are those among us who’ve done this and they can carry the torch until we learn to carry it ourselves.

Life is not a dress rehearsal. Live like you mean it!
