Be replaceable

Disney Keynote Speakers
The job of a great leader is to make more leaders. Better leaders.

Be replaceable?

What does that mean?

Will a younger person be able to build on what you’ve accomplished and make their life better than yours by any metric you pick?

Will a younger person be able to build on what you’ve accomplished and make our world a little better than you made it by any metric you pick?

If you’re not thinking about death every day…

Disney Pixar Coco
Disney-Pixar Coco arrives in two days.

 

iPhone X
It arrives today.

 

If you’re not thinking about death every day, you’re missing out on living like you mean it.

Being intentional helps you become as prepared as you can be.

Being prepared means you are in a great position should adversity strike unexpectedly.

Your mileage may vary.

Arriving home late is not worth it

Airport departure sign
Note time in upper right corner. Third flight from top is ours.

 

An alarm chiming at 3:30am in Montana is the price paid for a decent arrival time in Orlando. The 20-minute drive to Kalispel airport and an easy rental car return process made it undemanding to arrive early for a 6:15am wheels up.

.

PS. Note to self for posterity: 08.06 Saturday fly home 730am

When was the last time we spent a few minutes visualizing this?

Emily Ann from The Voice Finale
Underdog Emily Ann could upset Jordan Smith.

 

When was the last time we spent a few minutes visualizing our dreams?

The Voice’s 2015 winner was crowned two nights ago. Last night i watched the recorded Final competition. i (gratefully) still don’t know who won. i would bet it’s Jordan Smith.

But after watching Emily’s recorded performances last night, there is the possibility that the impossible could happen. Pretty sure that’s what she and her Family is dreaming of.

What crazy, impossible dreams do i have that are still worth pursuing, even though they are “impossible”?

What Happens Next?

Allentown, Not Helsinki

How often do we spend time taking a moment looking ahead?

Not talking about mid-morning, trying to decide where to go for lunch and with whom, even though that can qualify as an important decision.

Rather, looking ahead ten years.

What?

It’s hard isn’t it? That’s why we rarely, if ever, give it considerable thought.

Considerable thought.

Substantial thought.

The long and hard discussion with ourselves about our future.

It’s like reaching the top of Maslow’s pyramid.

I’ll be spending several precious days with a couple of 80-somethings. Wonder what we’ll talk about.
