Make It Simple

The time to worry about it is when you don’t need to

Christmas Music
Started to listen to Christmas Music yesterday, prompted by an email from Apple Music. Yesterday, used bluetooth to connect to a small Bose speaker. Right now, just using the phone as it sits on the desk next to this laptop,

 

One of the guiding visions i use to motivate me to reduce, reuse, and recycle is the vision of moving into an assisted-living facility, and having a one-bedroom efficiency apartment.

Part two of that vision is moving to a nursing home room with two beds, one for me and one for my roommate. We’ll each get half a room for all our stuff.

It inspires me to be intentional now.

And in the process, be a role model for our teenager and my wife.

Dear Son

Never again after a lifetime?

homeowner tax preparation
Two full days, working off and on, to get it organized.

 

Finished this year’s tax return paperwork organization and calculations yesterday, March 22.

Told our Son i want to prepare next year’s paperwork and calculations in real time throughout this year so that it’s as automated as possible.

So today i’ve got only three months (Jan, Feb, Mar) to process instead of 12. And from this day forward, it’ll be literally done daily.

Consistency is the hallmark of world-class effort

Glacier National Park Lodge availability
Notice the 2017? Already planning next year’s visit.

 

Live and learn comes from the common effect of procrastinating.

The longer you wait, generally, the fewer available options.

This often leads to stress because “what could have been” ain’t gonna happen.

Don’t live like that.

How many adults rode their bike to the gig?

School Spring Festival
Roughly 20 booths total.

 

School Spring Festival
Pie in the face, using teachers and staff as targets to raise money.

 

School Spring Festival
Business “expo”.

 

School Spring Festival
Top thrill ride.

 

The School’s Spring Festival last night was much better than expected. Rode a bicycle due to anticipated parking challenges. Scoped out the business vendors area to see if it feels worth it for next year.

It did.

Pondered these:

  • What makes a business booth stand out?
  • How do you not make people walking by feel nervous about getting spammed with an unwanted “pitch”?
  • What is the driving purpose and desired outcome from a booth?
  • Is the outcome a pipe dream or tangibly within reach?

The clock is ticking. Always.

A year from now will seem like yesterday.

Suddenly, there’s a massive threat and everyone runs

Disney Leadership expert speakers
The Disney Half-Marathon staff over-focuses on excellence, even at the water stations.

 

Big snow storm predicted for mid-Atlantic states today. Every winter this is a possibility. Quiz time…how prepared are you?

Same thing happens here in Orlando every late Summer, early Fall – hurricane season.

Suddenly, there’s a massive threat and everyone runs to the stores to stock up.

What if stocking up was a pre-season to-do habit?
