Dear Son

You’re doing it wrong, Jeff

Opening Apple Watch 3 box
Opening the box that was shipped from China, at Epcot – a little earlier in the plan than hoped, but we graciously complied at the Epcot bag check table.

Thought maybe we could take this white box in unopened.

Nope. (This was ok too.)

Anticipated worst case scenario, that’s why Chapin was ready with his camera to document the opening.

Future World.

Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. Don boxed it back up and i got in the pic for an “i was here” photo.

Every Guest received a complimentary button. But only yesterday, October 1, 2017.

The future has arrived. No?

 

You’re doing it wrong, Jeff.

Ok.

To which i think to myself, “But at least i’m doing it.”

Why does that matter?

For many, it doesn’t matter.

And then i remind myself i thought that way too.

Then a series of changes happened and i began a long, slow journey in thinking differently.

The aha moment?

Once i’m doing it, i have a chance to do it better.

Life.

It ain’t a dress rehearsal.

Waiting for perfect means not starting.

Not starting, for me, was riddled with excuses.

Using June 8, 2019 as a deadline for life.

Taking an unopened box to Epcot to open it.

Yeah the stuff i have no role model for.

Live like you mean it.

Or not.

Our choice.
