Everyday stories

adult humor gag gift
From the same Sanibel Island gift shop…different day and year – insanely random. The context here is that you never have to talk about your “workouts”. Your strength, flexibility, endurance, smile…they all kinda snitch on you about your workouts.

Tell a great story today, no words.

Shit my dad taught me

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers

Book title idea. (June 3, 2021).

Dear Son, remember, you have everything you need.

Best time to worry at home

Home is your HQ. You are the CEO of You, Inc.

Home may be an apartment, condo, a backpack, RV, boat, car, bike, or an actual home.

How you manage the paperwork of life depends on your effectiveness as the Chief Executive of your home’s structure and processes.

The time to worry is well before the unending paperwork of life buries you.

Become well-organized. Simplify. Reduce decision fatigue. Prioritize your priorities and build your home’s organizational structure and processes around maximizing results and minimizing effort.

Or, become unintentionally and increasing more disorganized. If you don’t have time to do things right the first time, you will never find time to do it right the second time. This poor habit of unintentionally (under-focusing) goes viral and there’s no stopping it from ruining your mindset, your physical vibrancy, your peace and contentment, and your valuable work artistry. Victim-mentality is the common excuse for a disorganized, non-vibrant life.

Birds of a feather flock together.

Soar. Don’t waddle.

Live like you mean it. Life is not a dress rehearsal.

How forgiving?

Disney Institute Keynote speaker Jeff Noel
Oct 27, 2014…..4 days before retiring from 30 years at Disney.

How forgiving are you?

You can master forgiving others after you first master forgiving yourself.

There is no short-cut.

Self forgiveness should, and must, happen first.

This life-insight is self-evident, and irrefutable.

Remember how long it took me to answer you, “Will you forgive me?”

A nanosecond.

You asked. You received.

Then you were asked, “Can you forgive yourself?”

Our tension, our pain, our confusion…we must forgive ourselves for each being a full 50% of the problem (challenge).

Remember what i told you last night?

The house and everything in it means nothing without you in it.

Mom excluded, who’s my favorite person in the entire world?
