Being decently organized is your best defense against succumbing to the stress and pressure of daily life.

Having a great attitude, being physically fit, being spiritually grounded, and doing work you love all contribute to being decently organized.

Pick up one end of the stick, you also pick up the other.

One in 40, maybe

Spider web closeup
Everyone, even the blood-sucking spider, is simply trying to survive.

 

The strength in a balanced approach lies not in individual excellence, but in the synergy generated by interconnectedness, also known as balance, wellness, harmony.

She said, “One in 40, maybe.”

The nursing assistant asks every patient, “Are you on any medications?”

She sees 40 patients each day.

Generally, only one in 40 says, “No, i’m not taking any medications.”

Being decently organized creates space in an overwhelming schedule to make time for better health choices, like regular exercise, a balanced diet, and adequate rest.

The ones who “make time” aren’t lucky, they are, simply, focused and disciplined. They see their health as something to be defended, not something they “have to” try and fit into their over-scheduled life.

Patience must dwell in both places – home and work.

Yesterday was another step forward as a Family.

Wellness does’t come easy to inexperienced or busy people.

Not only is technology cool, but so is initiative

Not only is technology cool, but so is initiative.

Through a Disney College Program Alumni Association, Stephanie asked for the opportunity to speak with me and ask questions. Neither of us knew it would last an hour.

Stephanie earned more time simply because she exceeded my expectations. She took the initiative (which was neither a requirement nor an expectation) to do some investigating (research) on the person she wanted to learn from.

Stephanie asked great questions.

She also revealed late in the conversation (which also exceeded expectations, because she never led with it to impress me) that she read 50 posts each on all five blogs (250 posts).

Wow.

She learned, eventually, how to use the easy hyperlinks to navigate from one website to the next. But that’s a story for another time.

She also ordered my book.

Initiative is difficult to hide.

Lack of initiative is also difficult to hide.

i talk to many ambitious people who are in the early stages of their career. Almost without exception, they ask without giving.

Stephanie stood out because she was a giver first.

A literal non-negotiable

Orlando Disney Leadership Speakers

Is being decently organized a pipe dream?

Is it impossible?

Here’s what it feels like to overcome this thinking:

There is something about preparing for the day, which in theory could be our last, long before dawn and watching the darkness change to light.

A bit like daily eating and bathing. A literal non-negotiable.

And as they say, ‘Every damn day.’
