Church at Home

Beginning the hour-long bike ride home last night.

Church at Home.

Religion is often full of habits and rituals.

There’s a reason for this.

The reason is that it maintains a standard, makes expectations and consequences clear, and allows for observable improvements to happen over time.

How we organize our home life – the structure and processes – for handling the administrative side of being a functioning member of society.

We can learn much from long-term sustainable structure and process.

We can also learn much from not being present, mindful, and motivated to change as times and conditions warrant.

Old after-Church routine

Disney FastPass app
Yesterday, a trip down memory lane….get FastPasses to Peter Pan. By 1130am Peter Pan was out of FastPasses for the entire day.

 

Mickey Mouse shaped drinking straws
After securing FastPasses, we had lunch at Columbia Harbor House. Our favorite meal was underwhelming. Everyone has an off day – but it’s never supposed to happen at Disney, right?

This storm front was hours away from our Magic Kingdom plans.

 

Columbia Harbor House view
We always sit in the alcove “bridge” – a table with a view.

My iPhone and watch mark our location.

Ooops.

 

Disney's Dumbo ride
Anticipation.

A final “we were there” shot.

 

Old after-Church routine we haven’t done in years….

Go home, change, go to Disney’s Magic Kingdom to ride Peter Pan and have lunch at Columbia Harbor House.

Back To The Lesson My Church And Disney Taught Me

Walt Disney said, "Keep moving forward". I hear ya loud and clear, Walt. Thanks.

Looking carefully at the Church’s model and Disney business model, it helped validate my intuition that life has five big choices: mind, body, spirit, money and hq. In trying to envision a balanced life with one or more of these missing, I can’t.

Insight: Mind, body and spirit are readily perceived as crucial, but what about where we spend a third of our life (career) and were we spend the rest of it (home, the headquarters of our life)?

I Used My Church And The Chain Of Excellence As A Benchmark

The door(s) to opportunity are not clearly marked, so literally try every door you can get your hands on.

 

I used my Church and the legendary chain of excellence as a benchmark for creating my personal priorities, in a dramatic effort to become a great parent. I call these five priorities “Life’s Big Choices“.

Common sense Insight: Some truths only become self-evident when you try to live without them.

Bothered Not Bored

The other night I told our son, “I’m bothered, but not bored.”

I’m bothered by the work load I put on myself.  Career, home, church, gym, home, family, retirement.

I’m not bored by any of it though.

Why?

Because I love it.  None of it feels like work.  So, being bored is the last thing on my mind.

Except for one small detail, and I must confess, “I’m bored with being bothered!”
