Keep your home in order

When everything that goes down every drain in your home has no place to go, you are in for a challenge.

The first day, we managed because we allowed raw sewage to flow into the landscape mulch, thinking the challenge was electrical.

It was mechanical.

Plan B.

Called Wednesday. Friday was the best response time.

What can you do?

Literally nothing except be grateful you have a big yard and big space between neighbors.

Phone call Thursday while driving home from blood draw downtown.

What normally happens in 30 minutes took three hours. 

Grateful to be there. Grateful to comfortably write a big repair and replacement check.

Just the photo please

Just the photo please.

Six tips (in above photo).

Gold.

Timeless.

Literally going against the proverbial current with everything i’m gonna say on Mike Simmons’ podcast in two hours.

  1. What is mindset? Our habitual attitude.
  2. What are common mistakes we make about mindset? Not being intentional about our sources/influences. Not being present nor motivated enough to improve. (Season 4 unpacks this)
  3. Why do we make these mistakes? Entertained, distracted and medicated. Herd mentality – if everyone is this way, it must be ok.
  4. How can we avoid these mistakes? Establish a clear, concise, and compelling goal that can only be achieved by dramatically raising your standards. A goal so compelling that trumps “Why am i doing all this hard work?” Because your attitude is worth defending.
  5. How does this change in the context of remote work from home? It doesn’t. Period. Of course there’s change, but change is nothing new – it’s the constant fabric of life.
  6. How does this change in Team context? Biggest addition is becoming a teacher not just through your example, but through intentional efforts to teach using VIP model.
  7. How does this change in Customer context? Now is not the time to start fawning and communicating like crazy with your customers. The time to do that was everyday before Covid-19.
  8. How does this change in Self context? Nothing changes, except this…you automatically gave yourself a grade for how prepared you are right now. You should be getting an A. If Disney Ran Your Life, operating below excellent levels would not be acceptable.
  9. Resources: Podcast, TED Talk, MLC book, LI content, Twitter.

When you are organized

Glacier Red Bus Tour
A Red Bus tour descending from Logan Pass to Rising Sun.
Mt Reynolds
Mt Reynolds. An angle that is less viewed. A side of Mt Reynolds that i stood at from the hike 99.99% never take.

When you are organized you rarely need to panic.

In fact, you may delight in your freedom from panic.

To be clear, panic’s magnetic force will tempt you, but you will take a deep breath and realize you are in a good place.

Being highly organized at home is great for everyday living. And it is exceptional for “life’s unexpected bad weather”.

If Disney Ran Your Life, you are well prepared for everything, even things that may never happen, or things that only happen every 10-20 years.

Trim then trim some more

Covid19 travel update
This upcoming trip is postponed for a future date.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Do it at a faster pace than you accumulate and you will gradually see margin on your shelves, in your drawers, closets, garages, and attics (and basements).

This ebbs and flows.

Aim for perfection, settle for excellence.
