Wisdom comes from experience

Disney Culture Speaker
It’s called conviction.

 

Wisdom comes from experience. Experience comes from making mistakes.

 

Developing and nurturing your convictions takes time.

You will have some – and possibly all – of it wrong as you grow and mature.

Lead with love, gratitude, generosity, forgiveness, self-control, honesty, initiative, and fun.

The details will fall into place as time goes by.

Mistakes are a gift

Disney Culture Speaker
Life’s trifecta.

 

Mistakes are a gift.  Every situation, properly perceived, is an opportunity.

We needed last night’s car ride

American Idol 2018
American Idol 2018, last night, Maddie sang “The Bare Necessities”.

 

American Idol 2018
Last night was the Disney episode. Katy Perry as Snow White.

 

We needed last night’s car ride to sort through a couple things.

You didn’t want to come along because it only takes one person to go get the Olive Garden order.

You were thinking it was an inconvenience.

i get it.

The fact we had to drive to an additional 35 minutes round trip out of our way was a gift – the gift of time.

When this goes live, will the two of you be actively engaged in physical activity?

One (not you) knows the long-term effects of a sedentary life.

The other (you) cannot yet comprehend the compound interest of a lifetime of smart and consistent wellness habits.

Being decently organized at home helps you find the time you need to move, rest, and eat well.

Today’s posts could be a mistake to publish

 

Today’s posts could be a mistake to publish.

You know, a strength overused becomes a liability.

A glaring blind spot for the perpetrator (me).

That said, here’s my bottom line…

There is no progress without failure…

No forward movement of society without making many uncomfortable…

No boundary expanded by playing it safe…

And when your time on earth has run out, no second chance to take the risks you wished you had taken.

Shouda, woulda, coulda.

Don’t die with regret.

Die with failure – and what you learned and taught from it – but please don’t die with regret.

Mistakes layer my foundation

Southwest Airlines aisle seat
Client texted to ask if i got a good seat for the flight home. i responded with this photo.

 

Writing about my high personal expectations and the ability to consistently deliver on those is not boastful, although it feels that way.

What’s critical to remember is that the way i got so good at what i do is because i’ve made more mistakes than anyone else.

As sales pitches go, i’d say yesterday’s (first one ever) was packed with more “i’ll never do that again” than it was with “that worked brilliantly”.
