Best year ever mindset in 2018?

What does it take to convince yourself?

Why wouldn’t you want 2018 to be your best year ever?

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.

Go.

PS. The math is telling me that day is the 16,000th Blog post milestone. Impossible.

Would Your Life Change?

The best Summer ever?

Downtown Orlando
Sitting on a bench yesterday afternoon outside the Orange County Government building. A beautiful Spring day.

 

The best Summer ever?

Sounds pretty darn lofty. Maybe too lofty.

Maybe next Summer, right?

But why not this Summer?

Some of us haven’t thought about this all year.

It’s March 4 as i wrote this (100 days before it goes live on June 12).

i’m already thinking about it.

In fact, started thinking about it last year.

Why?

Because, what i’ve learned from a lifetime at Disney, we get better results when we over-focus on the same things others (especially our old self) under-focus on or ignore.

Best Christmas ever?

Family Christmas photo
Some key members were unable to attend. Others haven’t been together in years.

 

Best Christmas ever?

When you’ve had 50+ Christmases, what criteria is fair to use in describing yesterday’s Christmas as the best one ever? And what about selective memory?

What about first Christmas:

  • As a married couple?
  • As a homeowner?
  • As a parent?
  • As a retiree?

What about the first one you can remember where you had most of your Family together?

Dear Son

Dear Son, in the stunning presence of nothingness

father and son bike ride
Last night we spoke about Halloween (in three days) being the kick off for ‘running’.

 

Dear Son, in the stunning presence of nothingness, with a Big Bang Theory rerun on the TV, last night became one of the best nights of 2015.

Why?

Because you and i talked about ‘nothing’ for an hour.

We both wound up lying on the floor just chatting about ‘life’.

Unforced.

Unhurried.

No agenda.

And i remember it like it happened 10 seconds ago – that moment when i closed the laptop, set it aside, and slid off the couch onto the floor.
