Those adults and their devices

Wild Goose Island
Arrival day for Glacier 2018 trip 5.

 

Wild Goose Island
All i did in this photo was smile a little wider and raise the eyebrows enough to crease the forehead. Same people, same location, different energy. Our attitude and thinking can be slightly tweaked too – with similarly and remarkably different energy.

 

Family room.

TV.

Or…

Restaurant with sports bar.

Big screen TVs.

The other night at The Big Easy i scanned the restaurant and island bar.

Nothing but older (40+) white men at the bar.

All of them staring at their devices – the big screen TVs with Sunday Pro Football games.

Please think twice before negatively stereotyping teens as being sucked up in their devices.

Think of the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s stereotypes of a dad at the breakfast table reading the newspaper while mom cooked breakfast and got the kids ready for their day. The newspaper was the “screen” back then.

A pleasure to the senses

Housekeeping card at Disney
Yes. This is true.

 

The card in the photo above is from Disney’s Grand Californian Resort at Disneyland:

A clean setting is a pleasure to the senses.

i didn’t say it, Disney did.

The same applies to our mind.

Disney didn’t say it, i did.

A cluttered mind leads us to the following thought by Bill Gates, to a fault…

Most people overestimate what they can do in 1 year and underestimate what they can do in 10 years. —

Dear Son

Manufactured mental energy

St Mary Lake from high Eastern vantage point.

 

With what ease are you able to manufacture positive thinking?

Or, does thinking positively need no assistance because it feeds off of itself?

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Balancing adventure with adulthood

Sign about zero excuses
Yesterday during a High School classroom tour.

 

There are different types of security. A roof over our heads, clean water, a stocked refrigerator, a ‘good’ job. The well-worn path society the herd travels.

Nothing destroys our sense of adventure more than a secure future.

The outliers movement challenges us to do something great.

To be adventurous…

Mend an important relationship before it’s too late, help raise money for a cure to something without one yet, or something in between.

Zero excuses?
