Life without a deadline

Disney, service, speaker
A note card from Disney University the other day.

Life without a deadline.

Not my cup of tea.

The ten years from age 50 to age 60 catapulted an appreciation for the power of a deadline.

Now that June 8, 2019 has come and gone, life is different.

Glacier revealed to me that i need a new deadline and goal.

Six months to live, you’ve heard of the notion

Disney Keynote speakers
Art is doing what everyone else does but in a unique way.

It’s only impossible until you do it the first time.

No one i know and no one i’ve heard of, and, i certainly have never done it.

What?

Create and implement a 10-year plan with the (fake) goal of living as if 10 years from today’s date, you will die.

Where are you going?

Where are you going?

When do you want to get there?

Why is getting there the thing you want?

You only get today once.

Is today going to move you closer to, or farther from, where you hope to be someday.

i dreamt of changing the age-old question

Family photo
Four days ago, December 30, 2017. Annual end-of-year party at the Mitchell’s. None of them can comprehend my crazy dream. Today’s five posts are the catalyst for going public.

 

The Doctor said, “We estimate you have 15 months to live.”

Just a dream?

Sort of.

i dreamt of changing the age-old question, “What would you do if you had six months to live?”

Change it to what?

“What would you do if you had 10 years to live?”

So yeah, for 8.5 years, i’ve been living like my 60th birthday is my last day.

Now, i’m 15 months away from my last day.

PS. i’m fully aware no one knows the day of their death. This is exactly why this is an intriguing endeavor.

Does everyone know what the goal is?

jeff noel Disney Keynote Speaker
Does everyone where you work know unhesitatingly what the goal is?

 

Does everyone where you work know what the goal is?

And by everyone, i don’t mean most, i mean everyone.

And, can they tell it to someone else easily and simply?

Everyone?
