The end of an era?

A favorite Disney character that goes everywhere i go, for a specific reason – love, Ohana.

The end of an era?

Asked our Son two days ago on our weekly touch-base call, “What would you think if i stopped blogging?”

He said, “It would feel like the end of an era.”

An era usually implies a long run with something that has been a fabric of everyday life.

After 11 years without missing a day, perhaps it would be the end of an era.

The script getting whispered during the daily two-hour writing commitment is, “This blogging is keeping you from finishing your Disney business books.”

If there was no job nor income to worry about and i could do anything, i’d start every single day by writing, just like the past 4,000+ mornings.

And now there’s a new script, thanks to our Son two days ago, “Of course you can do them both. You can blog like normal AND finish your first book about Disney Customer Service.”

The frequency is a general indicator

Writing has happened every single day beginning April 1, 2009. Closing in on 11 consecutive years. i can write from anywhere at anytime. No Wi-Fi or cell signal is needed.

The frequency of a repetitive thought is a signal you need to pay attention to.

The thought can be about anything, good or not so good.

Been thinking for six months about not writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts.

Just before i deactivated my personal Facebook account

Family at Walt Disney World
Family often get only the crumbs of our time and our attention.

 

 

You should DEACTIVATE Facebook, the voice in his head repeated….

Why?

Family often get only the crumbs of our time and our attention.

A few months ago, just before i deactivated my personal Facebook account, i had an epiphany.

Rather than quit, what about starting over?

Just Family.

And maybe a handful of people i’ve known for 35-50 years who are not family.

To illustrate how desperate i was to fix what was bothering me (not being able to keep up) i don’t have a single Disney colleague on FB.

From over 400 connections to less than 60.

Now i’m able read everyone’s updates, everyday.

The 360 connections that are gone – everyone of them is still my friend, and always will be.

Plus, if you really think about it, Facebook doesn’t define who our friends are, we do.

PS. In the 100+ days since i said i was able to keep up, i’ve found the “victory” hasn’t lasted. i remain challenged to keep up. But at least it feels less overwhelming – i’ll take that.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Get them to beg for mercy

Landscaping truck near Disney World
Who’s looking after your temptations to quit?

 

Organized to make stuff happen?

The temptation to give in to the constant pressure, and life’s unpredictability is often overwhelming.

Get used to it.

Let it piss you off.

Let it compel you to commit to slaying it.

Let your determination to succeed be enough to get your temptations to quit…to beg for mercy.

Quit wishing and start doing

Apple email inbox
It’s not that there’s no email, it’s that it’s constantly being handled decidedly differently than in the past.

 

Two weeks of zero in-box emails.

Talk about freedom.

Wow.
