Waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings of destruction

Disney culture speakers
Stumbled upon this doing WordPress 5.0 updates.

What can you see that others can’t?

Do you have an entirely different approach that is unknown to the world?

Do you have a clear, concise, and compelling purpose that lights your fire every morning?

Are you literally the only one who can deliver what you deliver?

Note: With 16 days remaining in 2018, i’ve been in the planning stage, since Summer, for radical change in 2019.

Do you wait for the New Year to arrive before planning an attack?

Do you do nothing until the new year arrives?

Overcoming the failure to start because of fear

Overcoming the failure to start because of fear…

Maybe someday i’ll use this website…www.ExcuseWhisperer.com

Perhaps it could become the eighth book on my list of books to write.

Sure, someday, right?

That’s what we always say, “Someday”.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Mid Life Crisis Is When...

The guaranteed antidote to regrets

Blurry photo
Life goes by in a blur.

 

Is procrastination to blame for my regrets?

Is it to blame for yours?

Yes and yes.

Consider this guaranteed antidote – a deadline.

If we want to have a better future (healthier, wealthier, smarter, more content, etc) we create wonderful dreams in our minds about how we’re going to change.

But we fail to attach a deadline, thus enabling procrastination to never feel compelled to end.

The reason we avoid deadlines is two-fold:

  1. We think we have forever
  2. A deadline is too much pressure for something we don’t need right now

Long-term procrastination makes us a spectator in our own life.

The frustration is severe because it wasn’t that we never finished our dream, it’s that we never got started in the first place.

Deep regret.

Back To The Future

Do we spend too much time in Tomorrowland?

Disney World's Space Mountain
From this morning’s run…passing the real Tomorrowland.

 

Do we spend too much time in Tomorrowland?

We make a lifetime habit of going after the easy stuff on our to do lists.

We’ll get to the hard stuff, “Tomorrow”.

Our long-term dreams are so easy to postpone because tomorrow always sounds promising.

One Question A Day?

The big, daily, relentless question is ridiculously simple

quote about struggle
Reprise: From someone’s Facebook update a few days ago. Quote attributed to Ralston Bowles.

 

The big, daily, relentless question is ridiculously simple.

When?

When will we quit promising ourselves that things will change “tomorrow”?

Today is yesterday’s tomorrow.

No?
