Dear Son

So you know everything?

Most of what is important is hidden because of its familiarity and simplicity.

So you know everything?

No.

But i know a lot about what matters and what doesn’t.

Everything comes with a price.

A positive mindset.

A negative mindset.

Over-focus.

Extra inch.

.think .differently

Life’s five big choices.

Envisioning a future that’s not only better than now, but much better than now.

And so on and so forth.

While nurturing my spirit, a mental and a career idea bloomed

notes
Notes from an idea that surfaced during yesterday’s 8:45AM Mass.

inspirational sayings
Pinterest sends me occasional emails with a few things they think i might appreciate. Here are two. You’d never know i struggle because i never focus on the “problems”. And, mistakes are some of my favorite teachers.

exercise wisdom
As you move from Mid Life Celebration’s blog to Lane 8’s blog, this message (from Twitter yesterday) is solid wisdom.

While nurturing my spirit yesterday morning, a mental and a career idea bloomed. Reference the top photo.

Jody Maberry has agreed to take me on as his final podcast customer. He doesn’t have room, but because of our relationship and my Disney wisdom, he is doing it.

He is smart.

And i am lucky.

(And blessed, humbled, excited, relieved, and grateful.)

When you get to Jungle Jeff’s blog, you’ll see why the note’s ideas (top photo above) are important.

Peace In Your Soul

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

fosbury flop statue
Fosbury flop. Screenshot from Twitter yesterday (Oct 24). The University of Oregon revealed this statue yesterday.

 

 

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.

What’s your Super Bowl?

Disney Speaker
Walt’s wisdom transforms the work we do every day.

 

What’s your Super Bowl?

Nike has their new campaign with Colin Kaepernick.

At Disney, we have “I’m going to Disneyland”.

So yeah, right now, i’m just doing it – going to Disneyland.

.think .differently
