If Disney was running your life

Season 3 is missing. It was set to publish at 1:00AM.

If Disney was running your life you wouldn’t miss the launch window.

Why?

Because people trust you to do what you say you’re going to do.

iPhone launch 2007

Jan 9, 2007. Missed this yesterday. Twitter reminded me, and many others.

Do you remember your first smart phone?

What was it?

Mine was an iPhone 3GS, in 2009.

Still have it as a museum piece.

Thank you Steve Jobs for your attitude.

Seriously, what if his attitude wasn’t as positive as it was?

It is so easy to back down from living in the now and pushing forward

It is so easy to back down from living in the now and pushing forward with our big (or simply enjoyable) dreams.

When the tough decisions have to be made to continue forward in the direction of something uncharted, we are tempted to wait.

If the decisions were easy, we wouldn’t need, or want, more time to decide.

And waiting becomes a (bad) habit.

Today is yesterday’s tomorrow.

Should we retire this year, at 55,  and go full on with our retirement plans, or should we wait until 60 or 65?

See what I mean?

What would you do?

Retire in 2014 (55), 2021 (62) or 2024 (65)?

The longer you postpone retirement, the bigger the pension.

The sooner you launch your dream, the longer you get to work on it.

None of us had a definitive answer.

Reminds me of Steve Jobs’ garage, and Walt Disney’s uncle’s garage

Walt Disney quote on sign at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park
Hire for attitude, not aptitude

 

Something special is happening in Indiana. Reminds me of Steve Jobs’ garage, and Walt Disney’s uncle’s garage and their used camera in 1923.

Seriously.

All those inspirational sayings that turn us on?

All those stories about the crazy ones, the misfits, the ones who challenged things…

You know the ones.

Ever since eighth grade he wanted to help people lead healthier, more balanced, and joyful lives.

Some advocates have stepped up to help him.

Two of them are in Indiana.

He didn’t ask.

And they didn’t care if he said no thanks. They were prepared to move forward irregardless.

And this Friday, February 28, 2014, in Valparaiso, Indiana – it will be one of those stories told in the future about “the early days” of the Movement.

It’s gettin’ real.

And it may not work, because we aren’t even sure we know what to expect.

But one thing we know for sure.

Those inspirational sayings are no longer sayings, they are our battle cries.

We will launch, learn, revise.

And then launch again.

To the ones crazy enough, and bold enough to go first…

Break a leg Monica and Donna.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

Live like you mean it!

PS. Whatever you need. Whenever you need it.

Our timing will never be perfect. If we wait, what happens?

Nothing.

Exactly.

The best time to start was yesterday. The second best time is today.
