If your goal isn’t impossible

perseverance
You are a runner and writer but not in that order. Cross Country race Saturday, read your book (what you’ve written so far) yesterday.

 

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

Reading the first 30% of your book yesterday blew me away.

Only a glimpse of amazing

Rising Sun Motor Inn room
He was 12 on his first Red Bus Tour. And almost 16 on his second yesterday.

 

It was 1973 and roughly 40 Scouts plus chaperones arrived at Glacier National Park early evening and checked into Swiftcurrent Motor Inn, had dinner and went to bed. After breakfast the next morning, we drove an hour around the southern Park border to Lake McDonald Lodge. It was there i boarded and enjoyed my first Red Bus tour.

That first time, in 1973, i was 14 and all my fellow Red Bus tour passengers were fellow Boy Scouts from my Central Pennsylvania Council.

Yesterday (Aug 1, 2016) was my third tour.

.

Recap from Sunday 07.31…6-hr Red Bus tour, lunch at Lake McDonald Lodge, Henry driver, dinner at St Mary Lodge, look at shops, ice cream at Two Dog Flats

The paradox of finishing

Mid Life Celebration

 

(photo: Looking forward to one last day at the office as an official Disney leader)

The paradox of finishing.

Today, Halloween 2014, is the final day as a full-time Walt Disney World Cast Member and Leader.

What looks like the finish line is actually not the end at all.

At. All.

It is the beginning.

A gutsy move to serve more, as if that’s even possible.

And it is.

PS. Intentionally picked Halloween because leaving something that’s in your DNA and that you love to do is really scary.

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

Identify Your Highest Skill

“Identify your highest skill and devote your time to performing it.  Delegate all other skills”. Ronald Brown

Mid life adults get to mid life for a variety of reasons, including luck, passion, focus, discipline, etc.  What we do once we get to mid life is a different game though.

How?

Why?

Many reasons to be sure.  Well, at least if we pay attention. Many people at mid life have the proverbial Mid Life Crisis, lasting from a few hours, a few months, and even a few years.

One of the mid life tips to consider is to do what Ronald Brown suggests.  Only one challenge with that though?

Most have no idea what their highest skill is.  None.  Crisis?  What crisis?
