Please do not settle

M-I-C-K-E-Y.

Notes to self…Middle of night awoke with this self-conversation…

  1. Does this sound unreasonable?
  2. What are you prepared to do to achieve it?

Unpacked…(remember, it was 2am)…

  1. Wouldn’t it be great to live with mental vibrancy, physical vibrancy, spiritual vibrancy, career vibrancy, and home life vibrancy?
  2. Now, what’s your answer?

Assuming your answer is yes, what are you prepared to do to achieve it? Because, you do believe you deserve it, and that it would be wonderful to live that way,

Then the only question, really, is, what are you willing to do next? And for how long?

Improvement Coaching

Photo of a bicyclist's shadow at Walt Disney World entrance
During the height (April-May) of 2020’s Covid-19 stay at home order, Florida allowed outside exercise. Bicycling at WDW was perfect, logging 30 miles per day. Creative use of a deserted space.

Improvement coaching to drive creativity and innovation:

  • Create a cultural environment that instinctively knows how to proactively spot improvement opportunities and quickly brainstorm multiple ideas.
  • Create cultural norms for selecting from a long list of inside-the-box ideas that are best aligned with Company reputation.
  • Establish Company mantra for low-cost-to-no-cost solutions to guide quick, nimble, effective implementation.
  • Every leader embraces creating an environment where great ideas have no choice but to flourish and consistently encourages and recognizes smart, proactive risk taking.

Where i’m from there are 3 kinds of people

Disney Keynote Speakers
Biking is always a possibility. Certain times of the year have restrictions when you can be on Going-to-the-Sun Road, usually no biking between 10am-4pm.

 

Let’s do some math.

Where i’m originally from there are 3 kinds of people.

There are those that can count and those that can’t.

Wait for it…

Haha.

Twenty-four hours, an hour at a time, spread over one full year.

Expand the box – crazy idea but totally in line with my core competencies.

Twenty-four hours, doing three eight-hour days in a combination of intentional and organic time, focused and unfocused time, fun and serious time.

Student teaching togetherness in a place covering 1,000,000 acres, 734 miles of trail, and 300 Grizzly Bears.

Twenty-four hours of togetherness in Glacier National Park.

Sample timeline for five-day, four-night life-altering trip.

Arrive on a Day One with no agenda except to get settled in.

Day Two morning through Day Four evening, “24 hours” of thinking, asking, telling, dreaming, writing, hiking, resting, looking, dreaming.

Day Five morning catch a 6am or 7am flight home.

You cover your airfare and souvenirs, i’ve got everything else.

  • Four nights in-the-Park accommodations.
  • All meals.
  • Rental car.
  • Entrance fees.
  • Bus, boat and/or bicycle fees, time permitting.

You book and pay for airfare to Glacier International Airport in Kalispell, MT (airport code FCA). Delta and United are main carriers.
