Final 120 Days

The 10-year plan has less than 30 days.

Disney Podcast
Yesterday the latest episode (Season 2, Episode 4) didn’t arrive like it automatically should. Now 18 weeks into the weekly publishing, this is concerning. It will get resolved.

The original 10-year plan has less than 30 days.

The plan was and still is: What would you do if you had only 10 years left to live?

A new, continuing plan is (and has been) in the works.

It’s revolving around a one, two, or three year addendum.

Son, four college years will fly by (in hindsight). In the present, the weeks may drag, but trust me, a decent sense of urgency will alleviate regret for missed or neglected opportunities when you evaluate your college years after graduation.

Six months to live, you’ve heard of the notion

Disney Keynote speakers
Art is doing what everyone else does but in a unique way.

It’s only impossible until you do it the first time.

No one i know and no one i’ve heard of, and, i certainly have never done it.

What?

Create and implement a 10-year plan with the (fake) goal of living as if 10 years from today’s date, you will die.

Honey, It's For You

Before i die i want to ___________

 

Context from You Tube: In her New Orleans neighborhood, artist and TED Fellow Candy Chang turned an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard asking a fill-in-the-blank question: “Before I die I want to ___.” Her neighbors’ answers — surprising, poignant, funny — became an unexpected mirror for the community. (What’s your answer?)

 

Fill in the blank…

Before i die i want to ___________.

Living like you mean it

Women’s Olympic 400 Meter hurdles final – no American has ever won this event before.

Living like you mean it. Yeah, sure looks good on paper.

Woke up at 4:00am (75 minutes ago) feeling groggy. Tempted to hit snooze. i’m literally never tempted to hit snooze. Back in the day (Disney Resort Operations), i used to do it every morning – for 15 years.

Moving to Disney Institute in 1999, i no longer worked crazy shifts and started having regular sleep cycles. The snooze button became irrelevant because i focused on a regular bed time and an eight-hour a night sleep target.

Staying up until 10pm-ish to watch Olympic Track & Field finals and getting up to be at High School Cross Country practice by 5:50am has led to a short-term sleep disruption.

And i am reminded that my incentive for doing this is i am watching these Olympics as my last Olympics.

i may live long enough to watch the 2020 Olympics, but i am not planning on it.

Nothing else will compel us to do whatever it takes

Boy on bike at dusk near Walt Disney World
Seriously, we would die for it? Absolutely.

 

Want to help make the world a better place? Be the person that offers something good to the world.

And if we want to help change the world, we must be willing to do something we would die for.

Nothing else will compel us to do whatever it takes.

Because it’s simply too easy to quit when it gets tough.
