It’s the reason all three of us took the risk

Snyder Creek and Lake McDonald

Lee Cockerell and i enjoyed a half-hour together yesterday.

Left the house at 5:50am for the hour bike ride to arrive 10 minutes early for a 7am breakfast at “Lee’s Starbucks”.

Lee’s son, Dan, recently left Disney to do what Lee and i do – help others by sharing our Disney wisdom in speeches and advising.

We shared how our Summer is going and weaved in and out of business talk.

Lee asked me if i ever expected the freedom i currently enjoy with controlling my time.

Yes.

It was the reason i took the risk.

It’s the reason his son, Dan, recently did the same.

So excited for Dan – almost as if he’s my brother.

On the 12-mile return bike ride, i carved out 50 more minutes at the gym to focus on strength, core, and flexibility.

An entrepreneurial riff never hurt anyone

edgy
Edgy, to say the least.

 

You’re an entrepreneur.

Compelled to compete.

Desiring to dominate.

Hyperbole?

Or, perhaps, maybe just to survive.

You may want to leave a legacy and transform and influence an industry.

That’s the ultimate goal only achieved by the elite lucky few.

But daring to dream is what makes us human.

The stark reality is that to compete and dominate you need to obsess about where this fast-changing world is heading.

You can’t ignore reality any longer.

So what are smart successful entrepreneurs focusing on?

Rupturing industry stereotypes.

Becoming a category of one.

Hyperbole?

Forgive yourself when you drop the ball

wrinkle in time movie
Yesterday at Disney Springs.

Amazingly simple and creative.

There are even a few Minnie Mouse sculptures. Wow.

 

As organized as i am, i dropped the ball yesterday afternoon.

A friend’s daughter (a 12-year-old entrepreneur) made 40 Mickey (and Minnie) Mouse paper sculptures.

i promised to put payment (and gratuity) in the mailbox.

While at the Movie, i received an email that they dropped off the items.

The envelope was on my desk.

Who is this crazy, determined person?

Who is this crazy, determined person?

Oh, that would be an entrepreneur.

A person who takes on greater than normal risk.

Understatement of the year, right?

The odds of failing vs the odds of succeeding

Gym
It was cold yesterday as i began the 13-mile bike ride to the gym. But it was the heavy rain that caused my retreat and ultimately i drove a car. It would have been much easier to cancel yesterday’s workout. It’s 30 degrees as i type this january 4, 2018.

 

The odds of people sticking to their New Year resolution is roughly 1 in 10.

The odds of someone starting a business and making it sustainable is less than 1 in 10.

Here’s what this reveals:

  1. Accept that it’s going to be challenging and the odds of failure are astronomical.
  2. The people who “make it” are rewarded, over time, with enough lucky breaks to tip the scale.
  3. Longevity and desire is the recipe for lucky breaks.
  4. Remember that things turn out better or worse than you dream.
  5. When it’s worse, it’s only temporary.
  6. Quitting never leads to lucky breaks.

Sorry, wish it was more complicated than that.

Go.
