OQP Mental

For my podcast, If Disney Ran Your Life, picked the category business with the subcategory Entrepreneurship.

OQP mental.


Only Quality People, mentally.

High quality mental attitudes breath life, love, humility, optimism, and joy on you, around you and into you.

Low quality mental attitudes obviously can’t compete. Poison does not breath life.

HT (hat tip): Les Brown for OQP.

I’ve noticed my writing the past two months or so

Glacier Lilly and Mountain Goat
Glacier’s Hidden Lake Trail last a year ago (2015).


i’ve noticed the way my writing makes me .think .differently the past two months or so to be less captivating than i’m used to.

Yes, the way it challenges me to .think .differently does captivate me most of the time – three months after it’s written – because i have no idea what’s coming. i like that.

So what’s happened has been a conscious experiment to exclude photos.

While it lessens the time commitment – the primary goal – to write five daily blogs, it leaves me feeling less attached to the messages and insights.

The past 60 days by the way have been more work intense as i gear up to write Disney books and build structure and processes around my new website.

Anyway, i’ve noticed and i’m guessing you have too.

The 2016 Rio Olympics began the Track and Field portion yesterday (August 12) and this is an important every-four-years tradition to watch as much of it as possible.

Perhaps as early as tomorrow i’ll start adding photos back.

Update (Aug 20): i went back and added photos to the previous 10 days or so. i didn’t want to wait until tomorrow.

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.


Dear readers, something we can all agree on

Rising Sun Motor Inn and Cabins Cabin


(photo: Simple living helps us manage our responsibilities. Our Cabin at Rising Sun Motor Inn, GNP)

The quality of our work is dependent on many things.

We have all experienced this. And continue to experience this. Even as we read this.

Same with our attitude.

Sometimes we wish we had done a better job yesterday.

Go easy on yourself.

And don’t let the notion of not producing something amazing stop you from producing.

Writing everyday is a metaphor for this.

Focus on our attitude everyday. All day.

PS. Taking a break from Glacier National Park today.

How much is enough?

I Love Mickey Mouse t-shirt
How much Magic is enough? How much joy, peace, and love is enough?


Do we lower our standard, our passion, our hope, our expectations because we sense others resent our energy and joy? Do the others feel trapped and think we don’t know what feeling trapped feels like?

There is nothing inherently wrong with going through the motions, if living like that is a good enough standard.

Which ought to prepare us at any time for a simple, direct, legitimate question.

Are we satisfied?

(Or do we believe we deserve more, better, different?)

Social Media Sites Like Facebook, You Tube, Flickr, Twitter Have Exponentially Exploded Information Sharing

Social Media Feeds On The Unedited Real Life, In Real Time

Social media sites like Facebook, You Tube, Flickr, Twitter have exponentially exploded information sharing. What was once a scared cow is simply another boring cow. There’s so much information, society is even becoming numb to what was once shocking.

We no longer critique the content, the quality, or even the spelling of r txt.
