When you accomplish something you never meant to do

Disney Conference Keynote Speaker
Yesterday i used “Burn the ships” as the driving force behind leaving Disney after 30 years.

 

When you accomplish something you never meant to do you have the potential to reflect on it in a profound way, but only if you aren’t too busy to miss the opportunity.

Self-reflection may be the most important tool for living a life focused on living in the moment.

Living in the moment is a dream for most of us.

To be present.

Constantly.

When you get to know yourself better, you can appreciate your strengths, which you might otherwise be oblivious to. Realizing the right strength (that had been invisible to you) can set you free to live in a way that astonishes you in it’s goodness.

When you get to know yourself better, you can appreciate that your self-imposed limitations do not serve you, or others, very well. This is a blinding flash of the obvious. This also allows you to shed what is holding you back.

Ultimately, you accomplish something you never meant to do.
