The opportunity for unbelievable days is limitless

Main Street USA early morning

When is the time right for an unbelievable day?

The opportunity for unbelievable days is limitless. What if we began the day praying, reading, thinking, writing. What if we acted as if we had actually made time for this?

Sharpening the saw as the saying goes. Could an ordinary day be given new life?

Instead of simply driving directly to the hotel parking lot and making a bee line for the classroom we did this…

We rethink the start of the day.

We drive first to the city shuttle, park there instead of the hotel and ride the shuttle to the north end of town. Then we could walk beneath the city and come up on the south end, down by Main Street. Take a brief stroll down Main Street before traffic gets busy, then cut over to the local Hotel to get to the classroom where we’d be a student for a week learning from one of the world’s most admired companies.

Simple pleasures taken for granted.

Dreams?

No, not really.

This is a common privilege, rarely taken.

But not yesterday.

And so it goes, one day and then another.

You’re welcome Donna. Figured you would really enjoy it.

It was a stunning experience.

As a Custodial Manager a few years ago (a two-month cross-utilization from DI), the day always began in the Tunnel and walking in an empty Park.

And back in the day as a Jungle Cruise Skipper…

But the walk 100 days ago was different because it was so intentional. And because it actually was the result of a quick brainstorm on how to fit in exercise into a day where it was going to be missed.
