.do .differently

Brainstorming yesterday, May 14, 2019.
The original thought was, What would a slide look like in a speech where i gave the audience the essence, yet kept the slide simple?

What’s the bottom line when you .think .differently ?

.do .differently

The courage required to put action behind thoughts is what separates you from being a spectator in life or being a full-on participant.

Free at last

Disney Speaker jeff noel at Orlando Ritz Carlton
Less than 24 hours ago at our local Ritz Carlton.

We saw an ocean of well-deserved accolades for MLK yesterday, on every social media channel.

You have a recurring dream, right?

i too have a recurring dream – that we achieve a manageable life pace where lessons, virtues, and ideals inspire us daily, not just when prompted by the calendar.

Free at last.

Not talking about MLK right now, i’m referring to yesterday’s choice to not use slides for the first time ever.

A 20-year speaking habit of always using slides came to an end. Learned to always use slides from the best, Disney Institute. And followed my deeply-engrained habit the first five years out on my own.

But it’s a new year.

Breakthroughs do not happen in our comfort zone. Tweet this.

Free at last.

Dear Son

It may not work

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Incredible news.

We just received word that he’s been accepted to his first college of choice.

He only submitted a college application to one school.

No second choice.

No backup.

Bold.

Committed.

All in.

They say the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.

It’s a bit like leaving Disney and Disney Institute after 30+ years to start your own entrepreneurial business.

Leaving the Company you love for your only desirable option to do what you love with significantly less travel.

The catch?

Odds of succeeding are dishearteningly low for anyone starting a small business.

Ps. It may not work.

Why do you sit in the very last row?

Catholic Priest using technology
Father Benjamin inspired me yesterday morning. i told him afterward i could feel his passion in the very last row. PS. He’s checking his iPhone.

 

Why do you sit in the very last row?

Because…fundamentality, the last shall be first…

Actually, our Son (18) picks the seats.

You’ve heard of lose the battle, win the war?

So yeah.

i’ll take him consistently attending Sunday morning Mass without coercion over sitting front and center.

To ship or not to ship

Florida caladiums in Spring
Our caladiums began popping through the surface a couple weeks ago. For us, this is the official Spring announcement.

 

To ship or not to ship.

What does this mean?

Shipping means committing to hitting publish – you go public with your art.

What’s your art?

Good question.

In a perfect world, you are keenly aware of your art.

Keenly.

Aware.

It could be that you are living like you mean it, versus living in fear, doubt, regret, worry.

Your art is what makes you come alive.

Coming alive is what slays our fear of death.

PS. Death isn’t our fear, not coming alive before we die is our fear.

PSS. Happy first day of Spring.
