Everything Is Important

Simplify, simplify, simplify

Never forget this. Slay it.

Simplify, simplify, simplify.

Make dramatic leaps in personal growth.

The long way is the shortcut, and slow and steady wins the race.

It can often feel like you move forward only to be dealt a setback.

What’s really happening is you are simply being reminded that the progress you have made with your structure and processes still has room for improvement.

Often, we overcommit, we do too many things others could do, we put off something that eventually becomes an emergency, and we hold too tightly onto things we can’t control.

Breakthroughs happen when we keep moving forward, when our efforts finally reward us with noticeable progress.

Ebb, meet flow

Church App Formed
An App our Parish is providing for everyone at no charge.

 

Formed Church app
Formed is a Church App. There’s an App for literally everything, except predicting changes in our challenges.

 

The ebb and flow of the tide, the weather, our mood, our circumstances.

It happens hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, and sometimes only once every decade or so.

We don’t notice it much when it’s in our favor.

But when it’s not, it screams our name.

As CEO of You, Inc., it’s your lifetime responsibility to figure it out.

Dear Son

Life is hard and will continue to be challenging

Letter to Santa

Life is hard and will continue to be challenging.

Good luck with that.

It’s your sole responsibility to lead your life-time efforts.

If you aren’t working hard to mitigate (possibly even eliminate) the steady influx of unexpected challenges difficulties opportunities, you are slowing and surely being beaten down.

Keep fighting.

PS. Happy birthday Walt Disney (December 5).

Facebook mind

Traffic backup at Epcot toll plaza
Yesterday on our way to lunch at Epcot. It was a block-out (no go) day for getting family in.

 

Vehicle window messages
We can already see the writing on the wall – their Facebook updates…

 

Facebook mind, aka Facebook attitude.

You either control Facebook or Facebook controls you, at least for me.

Our attitude about our ability to be in control, or to be controlled, by social media is our responsibility. Challenge is, social norms allow overuse to be acceptable.

Even though i was ineffective at keeping up with everyone, i still tried – as if some miracle would happen. Or as if in my trying, i wouldn’t have to feel guilty for missing important moments in people’s lives.

Update: Today Feb 23…wow, reading this now, 100 days after the fact, i must have really been struggling…rather than edit today’s five posts, i’m leaving them as is – a moment in time, an internal struggle captured “on paper”.

This Is Just For Me

The truest test of our attitude is when we are being tested

Foot x-ray
Last month’s x-ray showed a healthy foot, in spite of ankle pain.

 

The truest test of our attitude is when we are being tested.

It’s doubtful i’ll be able to compete tomorrow at Nationals. Something i’ve been hoping to do for two years.

This could be a huge disappointment.

But it’s not.

Not because it isn’t, but because i refuse to let it be.
