Patience

Thank you Apple Private Browsing mode

April 2019 calendar
Eight months ago today we began jogging “one-mailbox-a-day”.

Thank you Apple Private Browsing mode. You provided relief from hassle, and frustration, the past two days.

This is a band-aid and not a solution.

Let’s not forget that.

And thanks also for the workout with patience. We may claim we are patient, but are we really?

Five Daily Blogs, Seriously?

How long have you been blogging every day?

Walt Disney
It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

How long have you been blogging every day?

Nine years and eleven months, to be exact.

Five daily, differently-themed blog posts written without ever missing a single day.

In 31 days the unthinkable happens.

Year 11 starts.

MidLife Celebration Is...

i have to laugh

Disney Institute speakers
Found this on a Google Search for Disney Institute. The first 6 years of daily writing, i worked and traveled full-time for Disney Institute. How was that possible?

 

i have to laugh.

@

myself.

Who wakes up at 5:00AM (sometimes earlier, if traveling) every morning and spends the next two hours writing?

And who does this morning ritual for over 3,000 consecutive days?

i’ll tell you who.

A freak.

And who says a mid-life crisis should be celebrated?

Same freak.

(me, right now, giggling)

Blogging with Benefits for 8+ years

quote
Note to self: You’ll regret backing off. Don’t do it.

 

Loosely structured from a Pinterest board:

  1. Ranking – front page for “Disney Keynote Speaker”
  2. Growth – in a word, transformation, from writing 3,200+ days
  3. Skills – confidence & conviction
  4. Marketing (see #1) – Google front page for Disney Speaker
  5. Clarity – life is complicated if we don’t figure it out
  6. Content – 16K+ published posts (and counting)
  7. Development – seeing thoughts on digital-paper is pure honesty
  8. Accessibility – digital thought-content is permanent
  9. PR – you can’t fake your life’s work
  10.  Impact – Maybe one or two people’s lives change

Back To The Future

November 30th meet December 30

First principles thinking
First principle, without any help from Elon Musk – Think For Yourself.

 

 

November 30th meet December 30?

i love writing in such a way that there is no pressure on me to write to please others.

i used to worry about writing ahead – not posting live, but posting in the future. Kinda the way many television shows are recorded and then aired later.

Stumbled upon it on a 14-hour flight for a Disney Institute engagement because i was worried i wouldn’t have time the next morning to write.

Had just learned how to schedule a post to publish on a future date. In preparation for this trip, i wrote a post while still in Orlando for the morning i was worried about.

As luck would have it, my fear never happened and i wrote that morning, 14-hours from Orlando.

This meant i now had a surplus of five posts (one day’s worth).

Bottomline: i’m currently writing 30 days out  – in this case,  30 days before New Year’s Eve.

So i’m thinking about the ineffectiveness of resolutions.

i’m also thinking about how December 30, 2001 was the last day i drank alcohol.

Turns out, for determined people, you figure out how to conquer your fears and follow your dreams – no matter what day you decide to commit.
