Everything takes longer than you expect

Disney Keynote Speakers
i’ve been dreaming for a few years that someone would cross my path that could create images like these. This image includes the Adobe Spark watermark. We’ve since upgraded the subscription to eliminate all watermarks.

 

Generally speaking, everything takes longer than you expect.

So please don’t become impatient or discouraged by your inability to quickly accomplish certain things.

Impatience and discouragement are sure bets for quitting.

Quitting leads to wondering “what might have been”.

“Might have been” leads to regret.

And reget, last time i checked, sucks.

Father of nudge theory won 2017 economics Noble Peace Prize

wisdom about questions
Taken during yesterday’s college tour.

 

 

Richard Thaler, Father of ‘nudge theory’ won a 2017 Noble Peace Prize in economics.

What would happen if our attitude about questions became more important than our traditional focus on answers?

For example, if we rethought our notions about college dormitory bathroom placement, could we increase freshmen retention rates.

We toured a college the past two days that has applied this behavioral science – nudge theory – to their new freshman dorm.

When you relentlessly look for light in the mental darkness

What’s the first thing you do after reading this? Feel inspired or feel angry? Your feeling is the cumulative result of your attitude.

 

When you relentlessly look for light in the mental darkness be prepared.

Be prepared.

For a breakthrough.

Make your best mistake

Website blog links
There are only a handful of people who’ve been here for all six years.

 

We don’t have to be ordinary.

Make your best mistake.

Then do it again.

And again.

It takes tremendous faith and conviction to believe what we want to happen will happen eventually…

By making enough mistakes, we reach the point of discovering a breakthrough success.

Not only don’t we have to be ordinary, we don’t want to be.

Not anymore.

There is midlife magic in not being afraid to be ordinary

Track Trailer with Wawa slogan
Me? Famous authenticity, but not even remotely famous for writing/organizing a book

 

There is midlife magic in not being afraid to be ordinary. Like this…

Two people besides myself have read Mid Life Celebration, the book.

Neither raved.

Polite comments, but no wow.

This is quite the opposite when I read it.

It completely inspires me.

Completely.

It’s two against one.

Should I give up?
