Waiting and doing nothing

Going to the sun road plowing status
Going-To-The-Sun Road plowing status. T-minus seven days until wheels up at 8am. Status from May 22, 2018 (yesterday).

 

 

Waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings of self-destruction.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.  – Dale Carnegie

Gonna be a busy Summer.

The hardest part isn’t what to do, it’s what not to do.

Not stalling.

Not procrastinating.

Not making excuses.

Not worrying about it not being good enough.

Worried about the future?

Calvin and Hobbs
Chapin sent me this last night. He showed it to me as we sat together in the Family room. i requested it, not knowing how i’d use it until after i wrote this post.

 

Worried about the future?

Prove it.

My theory is most adults could eliminate much of their worry if they cleaned up their own bank of lifetime habits first, before expecting someone else to change.

Yes, there are exceptions, but the odds of you being the exception are low.

Could ask dozens of simple questions, but for now, try these on…

When was the last time you exercised?

If we could see what you actually eat and drink in any given month, would you feel good or not so good?

When was the last time you began your day on your knees? And the time before that? Was it this morning and yesterday?

Is there breathing room in your cabinets, shelves, drawers, medicine cabinets, and closets?

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

 

Everyone is in sales

Chicken Egg balance on it's end
Rumor is you can only do this on Spring Equinox. It worked. Imagine if we could only trust ourselves once or twice a year. We often live like it.

 

In sales…

Trust is more important than how good you are.

In midlife, you need to sell yourself (to yourself) on your worth, your value, and your dreams.

Take steps to earn your own trust – so that what you hope for is worth burning the ships for.

The chain of excellence i used at Disney for 30 years

Birds on a wire
Yesterday morning on my street.

 

Today’s five posts represent a Chain of Excellence that i used – for 30 years at Walt Disney World – to be an effective leader. Leadership drives the employee experience and the employees judge their leader’s trustworthiness on what they see their leaders do, not what they hear their leaders say.

Action vs Intent

Design vs Default

Inch vs Mile

Definitely vs Likely

In vs Out

 

Maybe tomorrow i’ll dive deeper. Depends on what happens today.
