Are you indispensable?

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
The right question is worth exponentially more than the right answer to the wrong question.

 

Are you indispensable?

How do you know?

What metrics are you using?

What questions are you asking?

The right questions, the best questions, are scary because their answers require a significantly more accurate answer.

And even scarier, there may not be a single definitive answer.

Take for example, “What’s the meaning of life”

While there are many great, and personally accurate, answers, the real insight is this – does the respondent believe in their answer as if their life depends on it?

Responsibility

Lake McDonald Lodge
Wonderful. Home and office away from home. Lake McDonald Lodge in Glacier National Park.

 

Not only is everything your responsibility, it’s also your obligation.

  • Be true to yourself.
  • Do work that matters.
  • Be an insatiable learner.
  • Lean into discomfort.
  • Enjoy your journey.
  • Revel in your discoveries, good or not so good.

All day.

Every day.

Take your time but don’t wait

Disney Keynote Speakers
You give yourself an A+ for creating your own learning environment, right?

 

Take your time but don’t wait.

Your clock is ticking.

Ignoring it doesn’t change things.

Addressing it doesn’t guarantee things.

No one said life was easy.

And no one said you can’t make up your own game plan to live like you mean it.

Make sure your creative ideas have no choice but to flourish.

Hope

Age and grown up aren’t automatically synced

Departing flights board
Yesterday in San Antonio. The top, flight 1062, departure time is late enough at 8am to allow me to sleep in until 430am.

 

Your mind is so powerful.

Don’t like something about your life but you are powerless to change it?

Change your mind about your attitude towards it.

Simple.

Simple doesn’t mean easy, but it does mean simple.

Generally, the people who would benefit the most from reading a blog post like this have long ago abandoned reading here.

Why?

Few people want to be reminded (daily) that they have uncomfortable choices to make.

The hope here – the hope which i have spent my life growing – is that you fully accept your responsibility in life as CEO of You, Inc.

Anything less means you haven’t grown up.

Dear Son

i can’t mentally do it for you

Father and Son at Epcot
Yesterday at lunchtime.

 

i can’t mentally do it for you.

Someday, and i hope it doesn’t take you the 40 years it took me to figure it out, you’ll want to sell yourself on the fact that you are the CEO of You, Inc.

When you stop looking for others to change your circumstances and admit it’s your sole responsibility, your transformation will take place in a way you could have never believed possible.

Have fun with it.

Enjoy it.

Soar.
