Organization reaped some decent rewards yesterday

Organization reaped some decent rewards yesterday.

  1. Intentionally walked away from a nicely priced, but too low, speaking opportunity.
  2. Contracted a project manager. A person i trust and a highly-esteemed former Disney Colleague.
  3. CEO gave verbal commitment for October engagement.

In all three, i was willing to walk away.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Commitment is not a campaign slogan

Commitment is not a campaign slogan, not something that has a shelf life or a season.

Commitment is organizational vibrancy fuel.

No one will be more committed than you.

You set the temperature.

You are not there to maintain things, you are there to make them better.

Continuous improvement.

Never satisfied.

Always grateful.

The road to excellence has no finish line.

The long way is the short cut.

Find a million ways to make the daily grind fun and exciting

Apple Watch Mickey Mouse face screen shot
Apple Watch screen shot. Date in upper right corner (May 30) was yesterday.

 

Still getting used to the Apple watch i received four days ago. Driving home from the track meet, Cheryl called and i answered from the Apple Watch.

It was a moment.

A random, seemingly insignificant moment.

Like the baby steps i began taking in 1999 after a health scare from a cholesterol report. The motivation to get healthy or risk heart (attack) complications.

Do one thing that is easy, important, game changing.
