Back To The Future

Should we start talking about our funerals?

Great communication tools. Photo of notes from a webinar i listened to yesterday. It seems these four tactics would make eulogies better, especially if the future holds many.


Should we start talking about our funerals?

With our families?

With our lifelong school friends?

With our closest work friends?

What if we did start talking about it?

What if we never do?

Insignificant dates

Yesterday morning, a water break at Disney University on the way to Magic Kingdom. The Pinocchio statue is awarded to Cast Members with 30 years of service.


Insignificant dates.

Living like we mean it.

Things that we don’t have time to worry about until it’s too late.

June 8, 2019 is insignificant.

Yet it’s the day i turn 60.

Back on January 1, 2009 when i officially incorporated a small, solo, entrepreneurial LLC business, i gave myself 10 years to do everything in life i wanted to do. It felt good to be six moths ahead of the “official” starting line (June 8, 2009) when i turned 50.

The first half of the vision is over – “spend five more years at Disney to reach the official retirement age (55) – and the 30 years of Disney service milestone – and then five more years to put a dent in the universe.”

There are just over 3.5 years left to do everything in life i hope to do.

Self Control (Impossible?)

He’s going to tell everyone at the funeral

Disney Inspirational Leadership Speakers


(photo: Who are those people?)

While unwrapping gifts yesterday our son (14) said, “I’m going to say this at your funeral, ‘My Dad avoided answering a lot of questions’.”

Is this intentional or by default?

Great professional speakers know if they tell an audience the answer, the audience will never remember. And if the facilitator helps the audience discover the answer themselves, they will never forget.

By design or by default?

Would Your Life Change?

And so it goes, one day after another, until there are no more

And so it goes, one day after another, until there are no more.

By the way, do you know when your funeral is?

Why ask?

Because for the right person, this is an extraordinarily powerful question.

Maybe even a transformational question.

It was for me anyway.

Until Further Notice

Here’s a tough question, when’s your funeral?

Until further notice, mine is postponed.

If you don’t often think about dying, you probably don’t often think about living.

Don’t die with a book in you. The clock is ticking.

Can’t die now, there’s a book to write.
