This Is Just For Me

One second a day app

Disney Innovation Speakers
Yesterday while biking to Magic Kingdom. Note date and time in upper right.

Was reminded yesterday of the One-Second-A-Day app.

Had downloaded it a couple weeks ago.

Forgot about it and kinda forgot yesterday was January 1.

Got out of bed and took the first one-second video.

We are creatures of habit and there’s a decent chance i will struggle to remember to do this every day.

Anything that’s new and different from our habits and rituals is always at risk of failing.

Even good and fun things that don’t take long.

Imagine the odds when it’s painful (changing a habit) and not fun (because it’s painful) and takes what seems like forever.

Update (today, March 2): It lasted two days and haven’t done it since January 3. Why? Guessing because it wasn’t that important.

Back To The Future

Are you keeping up with the future?

Disney Innovation Speakers jeff
Signed up for ConvertKit email marketing software three days ago. Needed a profile pic. Here it is, from 2014. Jody Maberry asked me to do this so we can allow Podcast listeners to subscribe to my new podcast. PS. i will be teaching, as Jack Ma suggests in the video below, the soft stuff.

Are you keeping up with the future?

Current education teaches from a knowledge-based curriculum from the past 200 years.

This is an antiquated system that can never teach our children (and us) to compete with machines (AI).

So, really, are you keeping up?

Are you shedding old systems?

Are you learning, unlearning, and relearning?

All Saints Day (iPad Pro homework video)

Disney Speakers
Last night (in real time) New Years Eve 2018. Happy 2019 this morning.

 

 

Is this my final All Saints Day?

If it is, i’m glad i had 59 of them.

If it isn’t, i’m already • rethinking “homework”.

Supposing the new iPad Pro will be key.

But there is one more thing

Apple live event 2018
Tim had big shoes to fill. Still does.

 

But there is one more thing.

Show, don’t tell.

Use story to “show” what you are telling.

Facts and theories stick better when revealed through story.

i can tell you our son is a risk taker, or i can share with you, one more thing…

Writing this morning from Towson, Maryland in a Sheraton Hotel room adjacent to Goucher College. The reality of “nothing is guaranteed” was hyper-real yesterday as we attended the admissions info session and walked through campus on the student-led tour, for the fourth time in two years.

High School seniors across the United States are well-advised to apply to four to six colleges. At the very least, if you are deadset on one college, have a suitable second-choice as a backup.

Makes perfect sense.

Except…

Chapin has no backup.

He is applying for only one school, Goucher.

As parents, we are not insisting, as we probably should, that he have a backup plan, “just in case”.

A common inspirational saying for being fully committed is “burn the ships“, attributed to the 16th-century Spanish explorer, Hernan Cortes.

He may not get accepted into Goucher.

He may be faced with an opportunity in his future that will require him to be all in.

No matter what, the lesson he learns from his current approach will serve him well.

But only because he is all in now.

No theory.

No what-if.

Only all in.

Here’s to the crazy ones.
