Thriving on doing things that might fail

The walk to the gym yesterday morning facilitated writing yesterday’s five posts. (CSN, can you text when you get here. Thanks.)

Thriving on doing things that might fail.

That’s another way of saying that i thrive on doing things others think are wrong or better left to be done the traditional way.

Saying it won’t work is like pouring gasoline on my fire.

It’s lonely, and, a huge responsibility

Being organized and focused and disciplined.

Being creative, hopeful, driven.

Being fearless, with some practical constraints, from representing one of the world’s most admirable companies.

These are characteristics of people who are labeled crazy, weird, misfits, outcasts.

Being compelled to ask questions everyone should have ready answers too, but when asked, leaders become quiet, embarrassed, and even quietly angry.

Yeah, it’s lonely.

And a huge responsibility.

Question – is it worth it?

He’s good like that

Thank God he decided to do the most ridiculous thing with writing.

He decided not only to write every single day, but to write five differently-themed blogs. Everyday.

No, seriously.

Five blogs a day.

Stupid idea.


No one does that.

Everyone thought it was ridiculous.

Now, 66 months, and well over 10k published blog posts later…

Decent odds they think he’s out of his mind again.

Yet he prays for the Herd anyway.

How can he not?

Every day.

All day.

He’s good like that.


Today’s home thought continues with a mental thought for the day at the Next Blog

Good Saturday morning, April 26th, from Disneyland in California

Disneyland Resort wifi
Notice the time of day in the upper right corner?


Notice the time in the upper right corner?

Seems early, yet it’s actually 6:03am at Walt Disney World (home).

Many say it’s crazy to stay on the home turf time zone when traveling.


Probably because that’s the Herd’s prevailing wisdom.

Walt Disney also faced prevailing business wisdom, yet he broke all the rules anyway.

Work that takes so long and is so hard that it is never finished or never begun

Mid Life Celebration check book
Haven’t written enough checks in five years to move to a second booklet… feels good


Turned in 2013 paperwork for Mid Life Celebration’s tax preparation yesterday April 3, 2014.

Not many checks get written, but the Visa card gets a serious monthly workout.

What are we called to do?

For the past 63 months (five years worth plus Jan-Mar this year), MLC has spent $1,000/month in building a platform and a solid foundation on which to raise money for a cure.

Some would ask cynically, why not just donate $63,000 to CCFA?

A low risk ,short term approach thinks this way.

A bold, crazy mind thinks about impossible.

Very few breakthroughs come without hard work. Long work.

Work that takes so long and is so hard that it is never finished or never begun.

Make no small plans.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.
