Always as in, always

Watching Bob Iger’s Masterclass yesterday.

Always remember your focus determines your reality.

Always.

As in always.

Dream big.

Get there.

Stay there.

Always.

Three underrated personal assets

This photo would have never happened had i not started my own business – to help people and organizations do their scariest, most important work.

Three underrated personal assets:

  • Time
  • Discipline
  • Focus

My life has been on an upward spiral since 1999, when i was promoted to Disney Institute.

To teach is to learn twice.

i learned to be intentional.

i learned to over-focus on things i used to under-focus on or ignore: time, discipline, focus.

Nothing is the same as pre-1999, not even close.

Talk about joy and gratitude, wow!

Spring 2019 has sprung

Arnold Schwarzenegger speech
The long way is the short cut.

Spring 2019 has sprung.

Hello March 20, 2019.

You tricked me because i thought the 21st ushers in Spring. Not this year.

For every animal that hibernated this Winter, Spring is a great example of working hard.

For every person with a big, important dream, now is a great time to work your butt off.

Discipline is essential, but it’s not the key

Good news bad news
The good news is “you’re good”. The bad new is, “you’re good.”

 

Discipline is essential, but it’s not the key.

 

Here it is unpacked…

 

Yesterday morning the coach said, “You know what i’m insanely great at?”

The CEO asked, “What?”

“Discipline”, the coach exclaimed.

The CEO laughed and said, “Absolutely.”

Much later that day, as i crawled into bed i thought, “It isn’t discipline that’s the key, it’s vision.”

If you have a vision that’s clear, concise, and compelling and lights your fire, you’ll fnd a way.

When your vision is as powerful as your next breath, you’ll develop the discipline you need.

This then becomes a skill you can scale as you grow in your roles and responsibilities.

Self Control (Impossible?)

Because i don’t doesn’t mean i don’t want to

excuses, regrets, opportunities
Excuses, regrets, opportunities…used Siri to text me the above thought while biking yesterday,

 

Because i don’t doesn’t mean i don’t want to…

Just because i’m always positive doesn’t mean i’m not tempted to be negative.

Just because i exercise regularly doesn’t mean i wouldn’t rather relax at home.

Just because i rarely eat sugar doesn’t mean i don’t want to eat chocolate all day, every day.

Just because i go to bed early and awaken early doesn’t mean i don’t want to stay up late or sleep in.

Just because i consistently go to Church doesn’t mean i’d rather use Sunday mornings for something else.

Just because i do not get angry doesn’t mean i don’t want to get angry.

Just because i work so hard to be amazing in my profession doesn’t mean i’d rather spend less time studying, networking, writing, and chasing impossible goals.

Just because i’m decently organized, doesn’t mean there are many days where it is so hard to make decisions on what to keep, what to donate, and what to recycle.

Just because i love technology doesn’t mean i love all the time it takes to keep up with it.

Years ago, i purchased the domain name www.ExcuseWhisperer.com

Wishing everyone the best today.
