First visit home as a freshman

Make your bed every day. Photo: Granite Park Chalet in Glacier National Park. Before we departed, we stripped our beds so the staff wouldn’t have to.

First visit home as a freshman is this afternoon.

Fall break.

Last weekend was Parent’s weekend.

Being together twice in two weeks is unusual.

We are organized for this.

It’s great to see our Son mold his own habits and rituals as he becomes independently organized.

Didn’t see it coming

Watched the Disney-Pixar movie Coco last night, in a college dorm.

Didn’t see it coming.

What?

Being invited into a freshman dorm on a Friday night.

Go the extra inch

Great grocery store and bank, a short walk from campus. We stumbled upon this.

Son, your business officially goes live today.

Not bad for a college freshman’s first week.

Build your reputation the same way we build ours at Disney.

Go the extra inch.

Insight: Running a business demands you gain clarity on your priorities and scale personal structure and processes to be able to consistently deliver on your priorities.

Noticed a few college quirks

While walking yesterday, a Sunday, morning.
Closer look.
Stunning contrast in color, and size.
Context. Note: first i almost stepped on it. Second, the color and size contrast had me first believe they were unrelated. Not sure why i bent over to look closely.

Noticed a few college quirks:

  • Every freshman guy wore a tee-shirt.
  • The staff seemed genuinely excited for a new year. Is it the new College President or is this par for the course?
  • The environment for great personal discovery is everywhere – as if it’s hanging in the air, everywhere.
  • Most freshmen seem to be playing it safe, cautious, reserved.
  • Parents do not use the dining hall by themselves (without their freshman child), if at all, at least during the four meals we had there.

Asking questions is a brilliant thing to do

Sent this to a potential client two days ago after learning her favorite Disney Character is Gramma Tala.

Asking questions is a brilliant thing to do.

So obvious, right?

Not really.

Asking brilliant questions is a brilliant thing to do.

Son, please remember my Disney experience from asking questions in a public (Disney) forum.

Unknowingly i was embarrassing and pissing off leaders because the questions i asked should have been simultaneously answered aloud by every team member attending the meetings.

Instead, the questions harvested crickets.

However, this equation changes when you are in deep self-reflection. It doesn’t matter if our audience (yourself) gets pissed off or embarrassed.

Discomfort with your answers is fuel for positive change. Lean into it.
