The paperwork of life doesn’t care about your comfort

Can you imagine coordinating the travel and safety logistics for 200 high schoolers, their uniforms and instruments, and managing the parent’s expectations, not to mention Disney’s expectations?

The paperwork of life doesn’t care about your comfort.

Never has.

Never will.

No one else will care about it either.

So it’s 100% your responsibility to get really good at it.

Best wishes.

When Your Life Changes

Your cascading catalog of to-dos

Your cascading catalog of to-dos. It never ends. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that you are in charge and can do whatever you want, you’re the CEO of You, Inc.

You can devise a completely different structure and processes for handling your life’s to-do lists.

You can move to a different place in your organization. You can physically move to a different place to call home.

You can do whatever you want.

Will it be easy? No.

Will it seem impossible? Yes.

Will you let any of that stop you?

Carving Out A Life

And then there’s the paperwork of life

And then there’s the paperwork of life.

Went outside yesterday (a Saturday) to get some fresh air from a long work day. Yes, the weekends aren’t immune from work, even when you’re the boss and “control” how and when work gets done.

Our landscape maintenance crew’s mower broke down Tuesday at our house and they promised to return Friday. They didn’t make it Friday, nor yesterday. i walk outside and spent two hours pulling weeds.

Day To Day

As soon as you make decent progress

Disney Institute speakers
Twitter screenshot yesterday. i told most audiences, “At Disney, it’s chaos 24/7. The real Magic is that you’ll never believe me.”

As soon as you make decent progress to get caught up with the paperwork of life, a storm hits.

And then being decently disorganized becomes the daily challenge.

Busy as a beaver fixing their dam.

That’s us.

Metaphorically.

Figure it out.

Too busy, right?

The paperwork of life should create positive energy

Bob Chapek
From Twitter yesterday. Always have a pulse on Disney.

 

Dog at foot of desk chair
Always be fun to work with. Sent a CEO’s assistant a real-time photo of my current situation yesterday at 4pm.

Always carve out time to do nothing. Early evening waiting for “Aunt Cheryl” to come home from Disney.

 

The paperwork of life should create positive energy.
