Peace In Your Soul

Merry Christmas, thank you Christmas for being an annual part of my life

Why the Fosbury video?

Because Twitter planted a seed yesterday.

And the seed grew into a thought about being a pioneer.

Pioneers change things.

Maybe the way i think about death (and the 10-year plan) is pioneering.

Time will tell.

And no, i didn’t do it to pioneer anything.

Dick Fosbury didn’t either.

Dick was simply looking for a way to not be the worst high jumper on his High School team.

And i simply don’t want to die with regret. i plan to die with peace and contentment. Peace with who i am. Content with what i have.

Merry Christmas, thank you Christmas for being an annual part of my life.

According to my 10-year plan, this is my final Christmas.

i’m at peace with having such a non-conforming approach to life.

The critics, and there are always critics, used to be people i worried about what they would think of me.

Maybe 3-5 years ago i started asking, “Why?”

Well, for starters, some of them are family and friends.

People i’ve known a lifetime.

To this unnecessary worry, i’ve surrendered.

Free at last.

Thank God almighty, i’m free at last. (ht MLK)

Note: ht = hat tip.

How much time do you spend and when do you spend it?

apple calendar
Yesterday. Do you remember what you did? Do you remember why you did it?

 

 

Self-reflection…

How much time do you spend and when do you spend it?

Does your answer inspire you and fill you with peace and contentment?

Does your answer spark a panic attack (or denial)?

Reflection is like money in the bank

Delta priority boarding receipt
Had forgotten i purchased priority boarding for the trip out.

 

Reflection is like money in the bank.

Being cash rich but time poor means you have money in the bank, but you are too busy to spend time on yourself and with people you care about.

Your time is spent on being excellent (a positive assumption) in your career, but not having enough time to get a decent night’s sleep.

So yeah, self-reflection is a special kind of wealth.

When you start sleeping well and start awakening early enough to self-reflect, you’ll still be busy.

A “healthier” busy.

And then you can be bold enough and brave enough to be true to yourself.

If not now (or soon), when?

If not ever, why?

It’s not a race, is it?

Wild Goose Island
Wild Goose Island, early evening.

 

Wild Goose Island
Could i have spent more time here? Sure. Could i have spent less? Absolutely.

 

Wild Goose Island
She’s from Japan.

 

Disney characters at Glacier National Park
She followed my lead and got on her belly to get a better angle.

 

Disney Speaker
Pausing to create some Magic for others (and myself).

 

It’s not a race is it?

What?

Your life.

Where?

To the graveyard.

A busy person has little (or no) time to perceive time’s passage.

This is why we receive (if we’re lucky)  a wakeup call that shakes our core.

Finally getting out attention.

Hopefully.

Buy more time by cultivating peace of mind.

Cultivate peace of mind by doing the three transformational steps.

Some new and unique leadership thoughts are being cultivated on this trip.

Stuff i hoped for but couldn’t explain back in Orlando.
