Is there a dramatic leap cause and effect

Orlando Disney Keynote Speaker
Waiting for a Disney Cast Member to join us. i buy four pairs of high-end running shoes and 15 pairs of running socks every year. Scale your processes – over-focus on what you used to ignore or neglect.

 

When you make a dramatic leap in something important to you or your organization, is there a typical thing or scenario that always seems to be the catalyst?

If you can identify common links, you can replicate dramatic leaps in other areas.

For example, is there an elevated mindset in you (or your organization’s) believing that something heretofore impossible suddenly feels within reach?

Spoiler alert: Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Need Help Not Giving Up?

Everyone wants to get better

Granite Park Chalet. Every day i’m looking at flights, waiting for airfare to drop.

 

Literally everyone wants to get better.

Yet few people are willing to spend their lives to make it happen.

Why?

Part of the process gets lost or is never learned…

  • Without a sense of accomplishment and contribution, we stagnate and struggle to survive.
  • With a consistent sense of contribution and accomplishment, we grow and thrive.

We must learn the value of a lofty goal, persistent effort, and managing doubt.

Everything Is Important

What should we measure versus what we actually measure?

What should we measure versus what we actually measure?

The challenge is that we can hide behind things that don’t matter nearly enough – certainly not as much as some other harder to measure and more difficult to improve metrics.

“See, my numbers have improved.”

Often what is convenient and measurable has the least impact.

Measuring my annual income doesn’t actually measure my happiness.

Measuring my body weight doesn’t measure my strength, cardio-vascular endurance, flexibility, or core.

Measuring my sense of peace and contentment, from a deep sense of contribution and balance, is challenging to quantify, but easy to feel a sense of accomplishment. Or not.

Three quotes worth internalizing

Inside a large Catholic Church
So many troubled minds in the world

 

So many troubled minds in the world, including ourselves.

Here is how I heal: I see what’s less than optimal in other people, and I find that behavior in myself and work to correct it. Then other people are healed by being around my healing energy. The circle of life. – Heather Hans

A harsh reality?

We must live as we think, otherwise we shall end up by thinking as we have lived. – Paul Bourget

We are in charge of our life.

Live like you mean it. Life is not a dress rehearsal. – jn
