You have two choices with the hard stuff

Core competencies
If someone asked you, “What are your top three professional core competencies?”, would you have a ready answer? If you were asked, “Do you get to do more than you have to do?”, would you know what this means and would you have a ready answer?

You have two choices with the hard stuff. The hard stuff in this context is getting and staying decently organized.

  1. Complicate the hard stuff.
  2. Simplify the hard stuff.

Is it challenging to easily pick one of the two?

Of course not.

But you need to be over-focused on picking your choices.

When you’re not over-focused, you are distracted, entertained, and medicated with life.

You have personal organization habits that are by default, not by design.

What can a $10 keychain do for you?

Ice breakers
W did this last night at the dinner table. It was more fun than hoped.

What can a $10 keychain do for you?

For starters, the right keychain might transform the time spent in weekday routine dinner time conversation.

How?

The keychain holds 98 questions.

Fun, simple, and interesting questions.

It’s impossible to get in

GNP
Organized my personal and home life so i could do this bicycle ride to Logan Pass before Sun Road opened for the 2018 season.

It’s impossible to get accommodations inside Glacier National Park. Every time i go onto the two lodging company’s websites, nothing’s available.

Of course, if you’re not organized.

But if you’re organized, you have your pick of whatever you want and as much as you want.

Two people, one common goal, two vastly different outcomes.

Most of life works this way.

Luck favors the prepared.

Until you have your own list, study a lot of lists

Disney Leadership Speakers
Wrote this on an airplane napkin while watching Moneyball in 2012.

Good list from a 2012 flight home from France.

Number three caught my eye. There’s a time and a place for everything. Staying late is when your learning curve is blasting off.

Once you’ve reached a certain level, you’ll need to figure out how much of your life you want to sacrifice to keep moving forward.

Turning 60 in a couple months, i can tell you that staying late no longer works for me. The other 11 are still massively important to me.

Risk like you mean it

The Crow's Nest Adventureland
Yesterday’s Podcast recording experiment.
The Crow's Nest Adventureland
As a kid, i listened to the Swiss Family Robinson album over and over and over.
landscape plan design flaw
In three months, the Panera sign will be blocked. It will be 10-15 years or more before these palms clear the lettering. Sable palms grow 3″ per year.

Risk like you mean it.

Take risks when the need is low. Failure then will not matter much, if at all.

This is a glorious place to be.

The key to making this a habit is to be organized so you have time to dream. When you are overwhelmed with a busy schedule, you lose this opportunity. In this case, you take risks because you’re desperate and disorganized.
