Seems deathly legit

GNP.

Five regrets from the dying from Bronnie Ware:

  1. I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself
  2. I wish I had not worked so hard
  3. I wish I had the courage to express my feelings
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
  5. I wish that I had let myself be happier

The time to fix the roof is when the sun is shining.

John F Kennedy

A teacher until i die, and…

A teacher until i die, and…

In a perfect an excellent world, a teacher after i die too.

Tim Pollard made a name for himself (at Disney) by helping Disney executives with poor to good speaking ability to raise their game a level or two. For a short, planned, strategic speech, one that you would read word-for-word, brilliant.

For live, spontaneous, enthusiastic, organic audience interaction lasting one hour to five days, it’s a guide, not a Bible.

While continuing to purge a lifetime of Disney and home paperwork and “stuff” (like the orange coffee mug), these photos are stored in Apple’s Notes app and the physical cards and cup are gone.

Tim and i started out great and over time, his non-Disney character revealed itself and rubbed me in a non-Disney way.

The Disney Way is a thing – a cultural thing – like friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and courteous Cast Members are The Disney Way.

Any behavior that’s off even a little bit is easily noticeable, questionable, and without change, unacceptable.

Great speaking concepts are context neutrally great. Grateful to Tim for sharing his speaking wisdom. He definitely assisted Disney Institute (DI) at a time when standardized delivery became the new vision. Without Tim’s help, DI would never have done what we did. Incidentally, the bulk of this delivery change occurred after i retired in 2014.

Life's To Do Lists (Referrals)

Want to feel strong?

WordPress admin dashboard screen shot for 5.4
The new WordPress version 5.4, released a week ago, improves many features, for writers and for developers. This is a screen shot of the admin dashboard. Our personal life’s admin dashboard is the paperwork of life.

Want to feel strong?

Finish these forms by having them notarized and stored digitally in the Cloud and send digital copies directly to the respective people:

  1. Last Will and Testament.
  2. Durable Power of Attorney for Financial Management (including two separate Acceptance of Appointment documents).
  3. Designation of Health Care Surrogate, which includes a Living Will.
  4. End-of-Life Plan (your final, official, Earthly party plan).

The strength you’ll feel is not only from having them completed, but also from your process to complete them.

If you die, are you prepared?

That bottom text message (to myself). You’re in charge of everything. Are your funeral arrangements ready to go if tomorrow never comes? Awesome. Congrats.

If you die, are you prepared?

When Your Life Changes

Organized risk taking

Feeling vibrant. Looking North towards Canada from Swiftcurrent Mountain.

Organized risk taking.

Old habits, ingrained early, create a lifetime of choices that are made mostly, if not always, on autopilot.

Old habits that aren’t improved, discarded, or completely reinvented, will lead to a lifetime of subpar decisions, with subpar outcomes.

For personal vibrancy.

For organizational vibrancy.

We can become chronically tired from the drain of the time, energy, money, and resolve required to do what we know we should do, but we don’t, instead we take the easiest and safest route.

We know we can do better, and whisper to ourself that tomorrow we will.

This too becomes a habit we are too tired to change.

And then, like Walt Disney, we find our journey over when we really wanted to forge ahead with renewed vigor, starting ideally, tomorrow.
