Carving Out A Life

A blinding flash of the obvious

Orlando Motivational Speaker
Life comes with few guarantees.

 

Life comes with few guarantees.

Trusting your gut isn’t 100% fool-proof.

Sometimes our gut is wrong.

It’s rare.

But it happens enough to tempt us to play it safe on the really big things.

Shedding material things that clutter our home offers a rare freedom from attachment.

Fear is an attachment to people and things.

Taking risks is risky, so is playing it safe.

Experiment with reducing, recycling and reusing stuff that you are emotionally attached to but may never (ever) use.

Dear Son

Dear doubt

Disney business insights
From a lunch meeting yesterday.

 

Disney Leadership speaker and author
Last evening on the Peoplemover.

 

Dear doubt,

Why you even cross my mind anymore is crazy.

Crazier still, i think about you nearly every day.

There must be something wrong with me.

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.

When Your Life Changes

For everyone in doubt, especially myself

For everyone in doubt, especially myself.

 

THE GAP by Ira Glass from Daniel Sax on Vimeo.

Just yesterday, i took a giant step.

Giant steps only happen after hundreds – more like thousands – of small, normal steps have been taken.

The long way is the short cut.

Completely Different?

Organize like you mean it: You fail if you don’t get really good at failing

West Orange High School 9th grade center

 

West Orange High School 9th grade center
It’s a huge campus for approx 1,400 ninth graders

 

Trying a crazy idea on for size and discovering it’s too small or too big is a gift.

Not trying is the quickest way to drive yourself insane.

Plus, the more you fail, the less failure feels uncomfortable.

Fail frequently. Fail better.

Failure, the gift that keeps on giving.

Thank goodness.
