Time flies in five year increments

This is priceless. Most organizations can not articulate a purpose statement. Five years from now this will be forgotten or it will be the DNA everyone talks about.

Time flies in five year increments.

One year goes by and we barely notice.

Five years go by and we are like, “Wow, i’ve learned so much in the past five years.”

In three days, it’s Halloween 2019 which means i’ve been retired from Disney for five years.

Disney Creativity & Innovation book

When and when not

Lots of photos of Mickey Mouse on the Internet. Lots of photos of Walt Disney too. Same with Bob Iger.

Why companies fail to innovate: tradition. It generates friction.

Bob Iger (excerpt)

Bob’s quote is in response to his big gamble with Disney +

i consistently and continuously gamble. For example…

Going paperless.

Abandoning the computer mouse.

Wearing merino wool clothing – clothing worn for weeks before needing a wash.

Giving up keynote speech slides.

Using a speaker agent – agents add 25% to your fees.

Retiring from Disney to start my business.

Traveling without a laptop – only using a computer that fits in a pocket (iPhone).

An endless list of doing uncomfortable and or risky things.

Tradition is both timely and timeless.

There are things that should change (timely) and things that shouldn’t change (timeless).

The tactics (above) were changed.

The strategy (my unspoken value) to continuously improve will never change.

The random list of changes listed here are all endeavoring to allow me to become more organized – managing time and effort to simplify and excel at my priorities.

Final 120 Days

Enjoyed the moment rather than capture it

For a guy who takes a lot of photos, i didn’t take many yesterday. This one was an afterthought.

Enjoyed the moment rather than capture it.

Rare.

Would i do it the same way again?

Probably not.

Do i regret not taking more photos?

Nope.

Son, it’s ok to be okay with not doing what you always do.

Remember, however, that great habits are scalable and produce superior long-term results. Aim for perfection, settle for excellence.

The absence of a group photo, when we had everyone here, would have been great but not having it doesn’t dimmish the memory of a wonderful day.

When Your Life Changes

Metamorphosis from consumer to producer?

Kindle library
Love reading, yet struggle to read books. This stage in life has more producing than consuming.

Metamorphosis from consumer to producer.?

There came a time in my life when i realized i was only consuming.

Never thinking original thoughts.

Never feeling confident about what i knew; was it mine or someone else’s?

Then what?

i began writing prolifically in 2009. When i began, it never was to last more than three months. Now it’s been a decade.

And writing has challenged and inspired me to not only think original thoughts, but to publish them too.

Still consuming, but the producing does the heavy lifting.

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?
