7 Reasons why failure and excellence don’t like each other

Disney Keynote Speakers
Imagine Disney being Disney without a fanatical approach to excellence.

 

Reasons why failure and excellence don’t like each other:

  1. Excellence is a habit
  2. It’s challenging to do the right thing (habits) all the time
  3. You have to do the right thing all the time
  4. Excellence can’t be sustained without 100% commitment
  5. 100% commitment is challenging in a stressful, busy world
  6. Excellence shuns excuses
  7. Humans like excuses because the person making one believes it’s legit

Remember, very good and excellent aren’t the same things, just as good and very good aren’t the same things.

And the difference between good and excellent is staggering.

My mindset determines my goal, how well i strive for the goal, and how determined i am to always have the highest goals.

Note: One of my high goals is to be a minimalist. High goals are not about status and wealth (although for some they are).

High goals are about living (and dying) with peace and contentment.

How did you get to a mental 10?

Summer 2016, Glacier National Park.

 

On a scale of 1-10 (10 is best) how do you rate yourself for achieving a consistently positive attitude?

How did you get to a 10?

Do you spend every day at a 10?

What do you do to stay at a 10?

Walt Disney said keep moving forward

Prolific blogger
5 daily, differently-themed blogs, each one’s color has meaning.

 

Walt Disney said, “We keep moving forward.”

Yesterday morning was an opportunity to speak at Orlando WordCamp.

It was a give-back opportunity.

Why give back?

Because i started using WordPress in October 2008.

And in 16 days, i’ll hit the 14,000 WordPress blog post milestone.

You keep moving forward one step, one day, one blog post, at a time.

Are you satisfied?

Walt Disney's Main Street window
iPhone 7 Plus.

iPhone 7

 

Both photos were taken from the same location. Both phones are the latest Apple releases (Sept 9, 2016…15 days ago).

The difference is remarkable.

It’s a much more expensive proposition to own both versus just one.

The iPhone 7 is always with me because it easily fits in my front pocket and hand.

The iPhone 7 Plus fits nicely in my back pocket and i use it as a laptop – exponentially easier to carry than even the smallest, lightest MacBook.

Because i have had the 6s and 6s Plus, i’ve discovered the iPhone Plus is superior in allowing me to write anywhere, anytime.

The MacBook 12 which is bigger yet smaller than the MacBook Air, requires me to carry it in my hand or in a backpack.

Being hands-free and backpack free feels lighter, leaner.

i like that.

A lot.
