Final 120 Days

Decision fatigue and our HQ

Iberia airline ticket
The return is off by 13 days and the final city is not Miami. Leaving Madrid June 7, landing in Orlando June 7. It’s May 3 as i discover this.

Decision fatigue and our HQ.

Bad news is the return flight’s date and destination city are incorrect.

Good news is the agency has a month to correct.

Had i not been looking for a photo from yesterday, i could have flown to Madrid and never caught this until June 6 when the 24-hour notice to check-in never arrived via email.

Son, life will deal you “bad or stormy weather”. It’s like the real weather, we get great weather, good weather, bad weather, and sometimes severe weather.

The only thing we can control is our preparedness for severe weather. We also get to control our appreciation for great, good, and bad weather.

Doing the wrong things right

Doing the wrong things right.

 

How does one know if this is true?

How does one balance the truth against a lifetime routine?

Is this a classic “activity equals productivity” dilemma?

Is this the Pareto principle in action?

Does doing the wrong things right insulate us from our fears and doubts?

Who would we have to become to embrace the notion of transformational change?

And could we ever convince ourselves to follow a different path?

When Your Life Changes

The one key action for getting and staying organized

Grinnell Glacier Overlook
Grinnell Glacier Overlook – a one-mile spur (each way) off Highline Trail, July 30, 2017. We decided to do it – making an 11-hour hike a 13-hour hike.

 

The one key action for getting and staying organized?

Make decisions.

Constantly.

Dear Son

Caught off guard and learning a lot about myself

Seth Godin quote
Do what you fear and the death of that fear is certain.

 

One door opens, another closes.

Finding a project manager was a blessing. This opportunity produced a new website, some sales sheets, and some logo samples.

Dear Son you will find that opportunity sometimes creates challenges, as surely as challenges often create opportunity.

This is my first experience were opportunity has created a scenario that is stretching me in unexpectedly uncomfortable ways.

The upside? It helped me see how high my expectations are and how patient i need to be while discerning these:

  • Pay by the hour
  • Pay a salary
  • Hire a replacement

It frightens me that i may be the issue.

It gives me solace that i am a good and decent person, leaning always to the more-than-fair side of things.

Meanwhile, i am graciously transitioning from paying a monthly salary in advance of any work being done to paying two-weeks in advance of any work being done and then moving to a traditional practice of receiving a work-completed invoice – for review before paying.

Seems more than fair.
