Giving as a way of life

Ubered home from Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Giving as a way of life.

Giving to yourself.

Giving to your Family.

Giving to your colleagues.

Giving to your community.

Giving to the world.

Any of the above are challenging to do when you are not decently organized.

Even more out of reach is doing them all when not decently organized.

Focus on the solution idea

TED talk karma
TED wants ideas, not problems.

The world wants ideas and solutions.

Exposing an issue is the easy part.

Solving the issue is what adds value.

They are both important, both necessary, but like i say about Christmas – Christmas means nothing without Easter.

State Farm postcard arrived 150 days late

voice message transcript
There’s no need to “prove’ what i say is true, yet sometimes having a “the fish was this big before it got away’ photo adds a nice level of authenticity to what sounds made up.

Jessica, my favorite State Farm agent, left a voice message yesterday to say thanks for the thoughtful postcard message.

You see, 150 days after sending a Glacier National Park postcard to her, she finally received it.

Grateful she took a moment to touch base.

Often when you go the extra inch, you never know if the recipient benefited. And if you ask why do it, it’s because it’s fun, the success rate is high, and to withhold fun and success because of some unknown outcomes would be short-sighted.

And sometimes, the recipient lavishes gratitude that’s disproportional to the effort invested. Those rare moments are exceptionally reinforcing that all it takes to spread joy is one extra inch of effort beyond what you normally do.

The audience is heavenly, the traveling is hell

The audience is heavenly, the traveling is hell.

When this post goes public at the end of April 2019, i’ll be only four months away from literally being able to travel anywhere (that’s safe) for any length of time.

With our Son in college, the desire to be home and available for him is a non-issue.

Will i log 270 days on the road, as Duncan has?

Will i see it as a gift, a burden, or something in between?
