The subtly painful truth about growth

Obligatory photo. From Rising Sun Motor Inn, head East and you’ll you leave Glacier and can drive North a few miles before re-entering Glacier.

This was a first for the teen, and a second for me.

Yee-haw!

 

Overcoming is the path to growth.

Little did i know yesterday morning that the day would end with a major personal achievement – overcoming a severe fear. And it had nothing to do with horses.

.

Note to myself for posterity: 08.02 Tuesday breakfast at Many Glacier, Cracker Flats two-hour horseback ride, lunch at Swiftcurrent, relax at Rising Sun, dinner at Logan Pass, Cheryl was not up to hiking Hidden Lake Trail so Chapin and i did the High Line trail entrance. The Highline Trail has always frightened me.

MidLife Celebration Is...

Irrefutable always lives up to it’s reputation

Flip flops on Sanibel Island beach
Three years ago this week, a good friend passed away unexpectedly. He was 47, a husband and a dad.

 

Irrefutable always lives up to it’s reputation.

We are all going to die.

Embracing this everyday, to me, makes living like you mean it a more tangible goal.

Back To The Future

What if we took a road trip?

Great observation
From LinkedIn yesterday.

 

In the pursuit of the unknown there’s a default solution we used to take back in college…

What if we took a road trip?

That feeling when it feels right to try a tried and true, but long abandoned strategy.

Two of my college buddies retired at 55.

That makes three of us from the group of 36.

Rick and JD would be great thought partners.

Time for a road trip?

Glacier National Park, see ya real soon.

One Question A Day?

Are you satisfied?

Disney Management Keynote Speaker
Keynote slide i use in my speeches. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

 

Are you satisfied?

The typical response is, “With what?”

My answer, typically, is, “With your life.”

Are you satisfied?

What do you plan to do about it?

When?

Why are you waiting?

What are you afraid of?

i hated my fear of failure and rejection.
