Balance (yeah right)

Prevention is the best cure

Work for a Company like Disney for 30 years and try to not be over-focused. Island time. Ever heard of it? It’s a cool place.

Prevention is the best cure.

Prevent what?

Burnout, and everything that burnout attracts.

So yeah, prevention.

Takes focus and discipline.

Be a beast at focusing on the basics.

Be relentlessly disciplined to keep your eye on the ball.

The ball, by the way, is the basics.

Three underrated personal assets

This photo would have never happened had i not started my own business – to help people and organizations do their scariest, most important work.

Three underrated personal assets:

  • Time
  • Discipline
  • Focus

My life has been on an upward spiral since 1999, when i was promoted to Disney Institute.

To teach is to learn twice.

i learned to be intentional.

i learned to over-focus on things i used to under-focus on or ignore: time, discipline, focus.

Nothing is the same as pre-1999, not even close.

Talk about joy and gratitude, wow!

Two rocket-fuel type questions

home office
Every day at home starts here well before sunrise. Recently replaced the desk and made things simpler.

Two critical, rocket-fuel-type questions we should have a ready answer for:

  • What’s my next?
  • How long do i have to achieve it?

Why?

Because without purpose and a deadline, where does your passion, motivation, and plan come from?

Final 120 Days

Resilience

Yesterday. In the backyard.

Resilience.

Nature has seen it all, except perhaps a human population that grows by one-billion every 13 years.

From Google:

Exponential growth of world population. It took 127 years for the world population to double from one billion to two. By contrast, it took only 47 years, from 1927 to 1974, to double from two billion to four. Since 1960, world population has grown by about one billion every 13 years.

Mother Earth has adapted and evolved over 4.5 billion years. She serves as a benchmark for our own existence. Adapt and overcome.

Over and under

Glacier National Park from a distance
Water is so soft compared to a rock. Yet water can carve a river of stone, given enough time.

We overestimate what we can do in a week. We underestimate what we can do in a month.

We overestimate what we can do in a month and underestimate what we can do in a year.

We overestimate what we can do in a day, and underestimate what we can do in a decade.
