When Your Life Changes

You have two choices with the hard stuff

Core competencies
If someone asked you, “What are your top three professional core competencies?”, would you have a ready answer? If you were asked, “Do you get to do more than you have to do?”, would you know what this means and would you have a ready answer?

You have two choices with the hard stuff. The hard stuff in this context is getting and staying decently organized.

  1. Complicate the hard stuff.
  2. Simplify the hard stuff.

Is it challenging to easily pick one of the two?

Of course not.

But you need to be over-focused on picking your choices.

When you’re not over-focused, you are distracted, entertained, and medicated with life.

You have personal organization habits that are by default, not by design.

Did you do DU?

Ben Myatt
On the way home from lunch.

 

Florida living
It’s 5:30am as i write this…12 hours ago, downstairs.

 

We didn’t do Jungle Cruise…95-minute wait.

But we did do lunch at Skipper Canteen.

Did you do DU?

We stopped by as we drove home, but the doors lock after 5pm on a Saturday.

Here’s to hoping (and i have a great feeling) Thinking Heads becomes my exclusive booking agent.

You can pretend

caring
Note from an interaction i had earlier this week. The source escapes me.

 

You can pretend to care, but you can not pretend to show up.

 

Go.

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.

The work at Disney is grueling and joyous

The work at Disney is grueling and joyous.

A perfect balance of professionalism and silliness.

It’s the only way to survive a demanding, lifelong career in the public eye.
