Analogy

TEDxAUK speakers 2019
Omar Nour over my head, and other integral volunteers for TEDx AUK, April 2019.

Analogy…

Knowing you should work out, knowing where the gym is and how much a membership costs, etc, etc…is not the same as being vibrantly healthy, because vibrancy requires that you actually breathe life into your health routine all day, everyday.

So in moving from physical vibrancy to organizational vibrancy, knowing that being decently organized makes a person’s life better…is not the same as putting structure and processes in place, continuously improving, and using that to keep up with the paperwork of life.

Amazing quotes or insights from a Biblical or historical giant?

Disney's Epcot Imagination pavilion creative door
From a person with 30+ years at a special place, including the past 15+ at his favorite

 

The 50 simple, common-sense, yes-or-no questions in Mid Life Celebration are not from some amazing quotes or insights from a Biblical or historical giant.

They are from a simple guy with a simple message:

Life is not a dress rehearsal. Live before you die.

The hope would be that every reader would have 50 ‘yeses’.

Uncommon Sense

If Common Sense Is Logical, What Is Uncommon Sense?

Uncommon sense says this is a perfect place to have lunch, rather than in a restaurant.

Google uncommon sense and there’s nothing substantial. But Google common sense and we quickly get Wikipedia’s answer – “sound and prudent judgement based on a simple perception of the situation or facts”.

So, my definition of uncommon sense: “sound and prudent judgement based on a simple perception that humans readily, habitually and abundantly ignore common sense”.

Insight: Knowing is never enough. We must apply knowledge.

I Am

I Am Aggressively Unfancy

Honeymoon On Bikes
Honeymoon On Bikes

Do you know who you are?  Do your loved ones know?  Could they describe you the way you hope?

Aggressively Unfancy.

Working for a Fortune 100 company in Central Florida for 27 years, I’ve grown accustomed to wearing suits, ties and shiny shoes.

When not at work, cut-off jeans, no shirt, no shoes is more of my style.

Jimmy Buffett or Z88.3 playing in the background.

My car is 21 years old, while those around my community drive new, upscale vehicles.

Our Honeymoon cost less than $200, for 2.5 weeks.

I color my hair, slowly. Gray.

I do a lot of other important things that nobody sees. Like starting each day on my knees.

Or pausing to pray every time we hear a siren.

While others read good books, I’m busy writing them.

I am inspired to be a Husband and a Father, and, um, one more thing – I’m aggressively unfancy.
