Prevention is the best cure

Work for a Company like Disney for 30 years and try to not be over-focused. Island time. Ever heard of it? It’s a cool place.

Prevention is the best cure.

Prevent what?

Burnout, and everything that burnout attracts.

So yeah, prevention.

Takes focus and discipline.

Be a beast at focusing on the basics.

Be relentlessly disciplined to keep your eye on the ball.

The ball, by the way, is the basics.

Life’s five big choices

Life’s five big choices are critical to your success – critical to your peace and contentment.

Sure, this t-shirt (above) from Disney’s Epcot Germany pavilion yesterday is funny, it’s also a statement about a person’s thinking.

Son, long-term peace and contentment is not found in alcohol.

PS. Son, common sense isn’t always common practice.

Balance is not a myth

Recording If Disney Ran Your Life yesterday at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Balance is not a myth.

Living like it is a myth – think about how low we set our bar for accomplishing personal vibrancy.

Scary.

But since “everyone’s doing it”, it can’t be that bad, right?

Happy present moment April 9, 2019

Happy present moment April 9, 2019.

Yesterday when i biked home from Disney (and the gym), i added photos to yesterday’s blog posts.

The photo above wouldn’t upload and gave a JSON error. And now it works. Why? How? Inquiring minds want to know.

Also on my agenda today is delivering a TEDx practice Talk, finalizing the day-long Walt Disney World podcast recording agenda for locations and content, and about 10 other administrative opportunities.

We are pleasure ​seeking machines

wellness cover article on Time Magazine
Yesterday checking out at Publix, the magazine rack sent a timely message. But we’re more interested in getting our stuff home before the ice cream melts. No?

We are pleasure seeking machines.

Food, TV, Internet, gambling, drugs and alcohol, sex, work.

Knowing this and embracing it is a huge advantage.

But awareness is only the beginning.

Nothing happens until we create a new reality from our knowledge.

i frequently wonder where i might be today if an elder would have coached me about the choices i will face and the common (pervasive) temptations i’ll need to slay.
