Final 120 Days

Riddle me this

Logan Pass Visitor Center parking lot is clear as of yesterday, May 31, 2019. This is super early in the season. I’m training to bicycle to this location from Avalanche Creek. A decent accomplishment for anyone, and particularly a 60-year old.

What attitude would you need?

What?

To easily deflect any peer pressure for complying with less desirable habits.

Our Son’s High School does mandatory beginning of the year drug testing using a human hair. Throughout the school year, every student faces random testing. The random testing and the possibility of expulsion make it easy for students to say no.

When faced with desserts at work and personal celebrations, just say you’re in training. When they ask for what, be creative.

I’m in training for total wellness.

Dear Son

What’s the difference between training and development?

What’s the difference between training and development?

Training to meet customer expectations:

  • Trainers
  • Procedures
  • Manuals
  • Objective evaluations
  • Compliance

Development to exceed customer expectations:

  • Leaders
  • No procedures
  • No manuals
  • Subjective evaluation
  • Commitment

We lump these two entirely different tools together as “Training and Development”.

Why is that dangerous?

Lost opportunity?

Easy opportunity?

Lost opportunity.

Which team will win, a well-trained and compliant team or an amazingly developed and committed team?

Balance (yeah right)

Should this move the needle on our personal satisfaction?

Apple Store Mall at Millenia
Apple Store Mall at Millenia. Yesterday. Is technology making us satisfied?

 

Does the proliferation of free quotes, insights, inspiration, real-life triumph stories – do any of these things move our needle for personal growth?

And is our growth enough to leave us feeling much more satisfied with our life?

i find this an exceptionally interesting question.

Why?

Because i don’t think it’s enough to transform a human being.

What?

i mean, all this stuff, all it does is medicate, distract, and entertain us.

An Old Ironic Habit

“It is an old ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way”.Rollo May

I’m tempted to question myself. Why? Because many I talk with, think I’m crazy to believe that people will want to change if the right recipe comes along.

There is a secret recipe. Everyone knows it. But because we ignore it, it remains a secret.

The secret is, “work hard and find your purpose”.

Most people don’t want to do either. I certainly didn’t. Most of my life was, “Work hard, play hard”. That’s a catch phrase for, “Hurry up, we’re lost”.

Then I regained consciousness and started looking around.  There’s much work to be done.  The harvest is great, the workers are few.

MidLife Celebration Is...

Mid Life Fanatic

Mid Life Fanatic. Why yes, yes I am.

Why wouldn’t anyone want to be a mid life fanatic? Actually, why wouldn’t anyone want to be fanatical about life? Period.

Fanatical. Defined as excessive enthusiasm.

Enthusiasm is just another word for attitude. Attitude is up to you. No one else. Period.

We get one chance to have enthusiasm. It’s the time between our birth and our death.

Ya with me?  Seriously.  Are you with me?  Carpe diem 🙂
