The beauty of home creativity is no rules are required.

There are a million ways to live a home-life.

Your job is to find the very best way for you.

Run your home life as if Disney Ran Your Life.

Highest standards.

Everything matters.

Nothing is optional.

Nothing is prescriptive.

Continuously improve.

Reap what you sow.

Teach others who are willing students.

In hindsight, patience

Sleep deprivation insidiously and negatively impacts our rational thinking.

Getting negativity caught off guard or being predictably put into an un-optimal situation attracts tension, anxiety, and impatience.

Note to self, impatience solves nothing.

.do .differently

STOP PRE is a battle cry Steve Prefontaine’s competitors made to intimidate him. Never worked. Steve was a rebel, who also happened to be a runner.

Creativity is worthless without action that changes something.

Same principle, thinking differently is worthless without action.

Business as usual is business in decline.

The antidote for decline?

Radical action.

Doesn’t have to be complicated.

In fact, it should not be complicated.

The antidote?

.do .differently

Life works thanks to habits

Walt Disney picking up trash
i have always taught outsiders that Cast members have one of two career habits: consistently pick up trash or consistently walk past it. Both habits are career-long habits.

Habits are primal.

Evolution invented habits to increase survival odds.

Behaviors that kept us alive got repeated.

Behaviors that fed us got repeated.

Behaviors that enabled reproduction got repeated.

How do your habits form now?

Work at any time, with any one

Work from home? Easy peasy.

Work from anywhere? Why not? What’s stopping anyone?

Work whenever you want and with whomever you want? Again, why not? What’s stopping anyone?

Free thinker?

Doubtful.

You’re almost guaranteed to be entrapped in a career prison.

Your only antidote is to .think differently

About everything.
