Homemade bank

Homemade bank.

We’ve never owned an ATM card.

Ever.

We (meaning mostly me) don’t carry cash.

We might keep $20-50 in a drawer for cash tips for whatever.

This is a challenge because sometimes it’s nice to have a little cash for whatever.

Created a small “home bank”.

Now, when i go to Kuwait, i can grab a fifty and stuff it in the wallet “just in case”.

Yes, i traveled to Kuwait recently with zero cash.

If we want to give, as a thank you gesture, a three-person landscape crew $20 each for lunch or dinner, there’s no longer the need to borrow $60 from our Son.

He also doesn’t use cash, but generally has a couple twenties.

Son, you know i’m doing this for mom and that’s the insight…be willing to create a process that doesn’t benefit you but it’s a process you own and manage.

Never forget that mastery takes too long

Jody Maberry setting up his podcast recording equipment yesterday at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Never forget that mastery takes too long.

Use this to your advantage.

If i tell you what this means, you’ll never remember.

If you figure it out for yourself, you’ll never forget.

Most popular TED Talks of all time

Play the lottery? Not a chance.

Most popular TED Talks of all time are available here.

No delusions that my upcoming TEDx Talk from Kuwait will make the list.

And yet, it could happen.

Just like playing the lottery.

Odds are higher that we’ll die in a plane crash, yet we buy lottery tickets.

Weird ain’t it?

Ended it where it began

Yesterday i ended where i began – sitting on the bench outside the High School office overlooking the courtyard.
“My bench” as i affectionally named it freshman year (2015).

Yesterday, ended it where it began.

The first month of our Son’s High School freshman year something happened.

He (we) found himself with the discovery that making friends with people you didn’t grow up with was harder than it looked.

One of the things i did was arrive 30-60 minutes earlier than our scheduled daily pickup time.

i’d sit outside the High School counselor’s office and watch the world go by.

It was an attempt to familiarize myself with the “landscape” of after-school karma.

In hindsight, my new business (post Disney career) was slow and i had discretionary time.

Bottom line, the time on that bench was valuable because i met many teachers and staff and built relationships with them, becoming an after school fixture, a familiar face, an involved (concerned) parent.

One of the best investments a parent could ever make.
