Want a mental benchmark?

Want a simple measure of your attitude?

Do nothing, and see how it feels.

Sit quietly for 30 minutes.

Or an hour.

Or, go for a walk alone, with no electronics.

How was it?

Could you do it again tomorrow or in a couple days?

Initiate thinking

Disney Institute speaker jeff noel
October 2014, the final month with Disney. A lifetime Disney career, surrounded by multitudes of people.

The monotony of the Covid-19 global self-quarantine opportunity is a first in the history of humankind.

It’s a gift.

It’s a panic-inducing event of epic proportions for the unprepared.

Most people are woefully unprepared.

For the prepared – and they deserve no shame nor guilt – it is the chance of a lifetime.

When we change what we see, what we see changes.

I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.

Albert Einstein, 1933

It's All We Have

This is what i would do if i was dying

Yesterday from 4:00 – 4:30pm.

One of the reasons our hard drive (brain) gets corrupted and slows down our operating system (mental attitude), is the harsh reality that our lives are incredibly busy.

In an effort to defragment my hard drive i spend 30 minutes each afternoon sitting on a bench. About 30 minutes later, at 4:30pm, there’s a High School freshman looking for a ride home.

In the quiet and stillness of doing nothing but waiting, i think to myself, “This is what i would do if i was dying.”

Back To The Future

The upside to being down (surgery recovery).

Mushrooms in well manicured lawn
On a slow walk we see things we always see

A slower pace offers an opportunity rarely taken – a closer look

 

The upside to being down (surgery recovery).

Time to look back, and remember why we started.

Time to inventory the original passion.

Time to decide how to continue moving forward.
