The reason we avoid deadlines is twofold:

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

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

Planning to watch my final Olympic Games this Summer

Planning to watch my final Olympic Games this Summer. (More on that as i approach my 57th birthday in 24 days)

Last week on the flights to and from Pennsylvania for client meetings, i read 11 chapters of “Finding The Next Steve Jobs”.

It’s a compelling and inspiring read from “the man who founded Atari and launched Steve Job’s career”.

Both author Nolan Bushnell and Steve Jobs are bona fide crazies, and creative geniuses.

Each of us has our own crazy.

How well we develop that is up to us.

i’m 210% committed.

Dream like you mean it

Dirty shirt of a shot putter
This dirty shirt may be the start of personal transformation.

 

Take your dreams seriously.

Seems so obvious.

But alas, we rush through our day, hoping to get back to our dream tomorrow.

We all know what happens with this habitual cycle.

MidLife Celebration Is...

It’s not about the money, even when the money is great

Refundable airfare rules
Our life is not eligible for a refund.

 

Sunset at Epcot with Monorail
Our days come to an end one at a time.

 

A great friend shared this yesterday:

“My 21-year old cousin had just been in a motorcycle accident and died twice on the table, but he miraculously made it. Then i get the invitation from you…everyone was happy at your retirement party. A few days later at my company’s (near Disney World, Time Share, obsessively money and numbers driven culture) quarterly breakfast celebration, no one was happy. That’s when it hit me that it’s not about the money.”

A blinding flash of the obvious only becomes obvious well into our life, usually decades into it.

The temptation is to rationalize that it’s too late to transform.

At 13 years his senior, was honored that he thought i could offer sound perspective and wisdom.

August 3, 2015

Podiatrist office patient chair
Yesterday morning, discussing someone else’s options.

 

August 3, 2015 (yesterday).

This is the day a Baby Boomer did three things on the journey to authenticity:

rethink  •  reprioritize  •  recommit

i witnessed the first day which was yesterday.

It will change this person from surviving (like the Herd) to thriving (like the Movement).

Being authentic begins and ends with the person in our mirror.

Authenticity has nothing to do with what others think.

Only a wake up call is powerful enough to get our serious attention.

But it may not be enough. Time will tell.
