Do a lot but not so much you can’t seize a moment

inspirational quote
Yesterday in the Resort hallway. Catch the three sentences at the very bottom? “The better the question. The better the answer. The better the world works.”

 

 

Do a lot but not so much you can’t seize a moment.

Notice an inspirational quote on a wall.

Invite someone to do something they never get invited to do.

Both of these were available to 450 attendees.

How many of us were so swamped and distracted we barely noticed?

i can handle no, but will you watch this 20-minute video right now?

 

Will you watch this 20-minute video right now?

(btw, i can handle no.)

The video is a story of a self-imposed experiment to live through rejection for 100 days.

Key takeaway when you get a no:

  • Ask the person, “Why?”
  • Mention and ask about something you’d be thinking if roles were reversed: For example, “Does my question sound weird?” This defuses emotional tension.
  • Don’t run. Rejection doesn’t define you, your reaction after the no defines you.

When Your Life Changes

Live like you mean it

 

Live like you mean it.

 

What inspires you?

Focus on that.

Please.

Don’t wait until tomorrow to get to it.

Waiting becomes a habit, and then we never do.

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.

Disney’s biggest fans are their Cast Members.

They love Disney so much that they left everything behind and moved to Orlando or Anaheim just to work there everyday.

They love Disney so much that they stay for a lifetime, just to get the lifetime annual pass that comes with their Disney Retiree ID card.

So yes:

#IamDisney
