Over-managing is not micromanaging

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park (GNP). St Mary Lake (middle), Continental Divide (horizon).

Over-managing and micromanaging are polar opposites. Over-managing is about being intentional where you used to be unintentional. It’s about over-focusing on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Why?

There’s a secret most don’t know

Cheryl and jeff the Disney retiree couple.

There’s a secret most don’t know.

Because most don’t know, most are on an unfocused chase to discover the one thing they have yet to discover – the secret to success.

Meanwhile, they try to survive day-to-day until they discover the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

The insecurity that comes from feeling like our foundation is weak or our future is uncertain can cloud our instinct to trust our gut.

The long way is the short cut.

Adventure is out there

Two days ago at Cheryl’s Disney retirement party at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Adventure is out there.

It may not be in focus.

That’s your job.

What?

To focus on it.

Over-focus is the ultimate habit

Disney Keynote speaker
Tradition when leaving Glacier to return to Disney calls for one last photo in Apgar from the shore of Lake McDonald. A present reminder (one of hundreds or thousands) that there’s a remote possibility this is the last trip ever.

It is impossible to overstate the importance of this particular action:

Over focus on the things you use to under focus on or ignore.

Strip away all the non-essentials.

Learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

There, you will begin your journey toward peace and contentment.

Moment

A moment in time in Apgar Village on Glacier’s West side. The 12 Park cameras snap a photo every six minutes but you don’t know exactly when, so you have to manipulate the moment in order to capture it.

Here’s a train of thought for the new decade that begins in three days:

  • Moment
  • Hour
  • Day
  • Week
  • Month
  • Quarter
  • Year
  • Decade
  • Life

If Disney Ran Your Life, you would learn to instinctively over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

You learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

The power that a decision we make in a moment has the power to grow and influence by the hour.
