Dear Son

RIP common sense

Orlando Eye
Last night from the restaurant, in the distance, the Orlando Eye. Common sense tells us to look to the horizon (future). Almost imperceptible.

 

Orlando Eye
Common sense tells us to focus, take a closer look, and be thankful.

 

Culture is the most powerful tool we have to change behavior.

Personally and professionally.

Let’s focus on personally right now.

All our life we are selfishly robbing from common sense, which insidiously erodes our standards.

Common sense can’t reason with excuses, distractions, or fear.

Because of this inability to reason, excuses, distractions, and fear easily outsmart common sense.

In our efforts to find shortcuts to save time and or money, and to avoid pain or embarrassment, we take creative (and what appears to be innocent) shortcuts.

What we accept by default becomes our standard.

RIP common sense.

One Question A Day?

What if we thought of excuses the same as this?

In the middle of the sentence, pure gold…the promiscuous amount of choice…

 

Please make sure you read the photo; in the middle of the sentence, pure gold…the promiscuous amount of choice…renders the consumer helpless.

So many excuses.

So little time.

So many excuses render us helpless.

Excuses need to be invalid or unacceptable. It’s like spilling something on a shirt or blouse and as soon as you can you want to put on a clean top or wash the soiled top. You refuse to walk around (unless you’re really drunk) with a glaring spill on your clothes.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Dear fellow traveler, we love your honest assessment of your path

Feeling lucky in Calgary? Yes. And blessed.

 

Dear fellow traveler, we love your honest assessment of your path.

We love your acceptance of what you need and want to do.

Everything we need to know we already know.

The basics.

And they don’t mean a darn thing if we don’t do them.

All day.

Everyday.

Keep climbing.

Every great CEO knows this

Doesn’t take a genius to comprehend the power of common sense

 

Being inspired is an inside job.

Every CEO who gets great financial results and whom people admire knows this.

Our attitude impacts everything else in our life.

For the front line person. For the CEO.
