Slow and steady wins the race

Disney Keynote Speakers
Two days ago, shopping for hiking shorts.

 

hippie hikers
Whatever. What is a hippie anyway? Technically, i’m a short-haired hippie.

 

Slow and steady wins the race.

Each day, chip away at the things that weigh you down.

It’s literally an effort that knows no finish line.

Chip away.

Never tire.

Build space in your year for something amazing, especially as you age.

Why?

Because if you don’t, you may never.

Why are you acting your age?

Disney Cast t-shirt
Yesterday at Disney University to mentor someone. What a childish tee shirt. Don’t you just love it?

Morning victories are under-rated. Tim Ferris, above, will send you his 5 things if you click through. My challenge to you – make your own list. Own it. Change it when or if it becomes irrelevant. But own it. Stop using someone else’s recipe.

 

 

Why are you acting your age?

Because.

It was pounded into my brain as a child, and for some, even into our teen years.

Act your age.

Classic.

Parent to child.

Kids never want to act their age.

Regrettably, adults start acting their age at some point in their lives and never turn back. (of course, being drunk changes the math, but being drunk is not being in control – so it doesn’t count)

When was the last time you ran across the room with your arms out proclaiming, “Look at me, I’m flying.”?

When was the last time you climbed a tree?

i hope it was recently.

50 is not a bad time to change everything

 

The photo’s text is crucial for today’s context…

 

Disney creativity and innovation speaker
Felt like having some fun and challenging myself in a creative, never-done-this-before way.

 

While cycling home from the gym yesterday, had an hour (3x longer than promised) phone conversation with somebody i’ve never met.

He’s in his mid-40s and wants to take control of his work life and be his own boss and do something amazing and make a contribution to society using his skill set and experience.

Hours later, in the early afternoon, as i laid down to take a nap it hit me… i was exactly where he was when i decided to change everything and start a small business.

That was seven years ago.

i was 50.

Insight: Using age as an excuse or barrier to catching a dream is an unproductive idea.

Authenticity (New Currency)

Authenticity becomes two things as we age

Tabloids spouting negativity
Headlines can build humanity up, or not.

 

The older we get, the more authenticity appeals to us and feels uncompromisingly important.

And yet.

None of us will change if we aren’t ready.

Or willing.

(we can be ready, but unwilling)

The only possible way this will work is if we discard the old rules.

Conformity. Compliance. Toleration. Yearning. Stalling.

Midlife Is Dictionary Defined As Middle Age

Midlife Is Dictionary Defined As Middle Age

Midlife is defined as middle age. That’s it? That’s all it is? jeff noel suggests it’s the seminal moment to reThink, rePrioritize and reCommit. As Baby Boomers, we get one, real, honest-to-goodness second chance at life. Midlife is that chance.
