What does an excellent day look like?

Simple. Never get bored with the basics. Have a clear, concise, and compelling goal.

What does an excellent day look like?

If someone said to you, “Never get bored with the basics.”, it’s likely to go in one ear and out the other. Why? Daily overwhelm.

First, to be clear, excellence resides closer to controversial and extreme.

  • Balancing (1)mind, (2)body, (3)spirit, (4)work, (5)home
  • Giving substantial energy to all 5 categories
  • Brimming with enthusiasm
  • Constant gratitude
  • Mindful
  • Present

Second, and also to be clear, you have to be controversially and extremely motivated to believe that balance is not a myth and personal vibrancy in all 5 categories is the gateway to balance.

The fine print under the name: “For keeping the magic alive through exemplary performance and commitment to the traditions and ideals established by Walt Disney.”

You are on a path to self-destruction.

You do not have balance.

You confessed it, but it has never been a secret to me.

Not only not a secret, but a glaringly obvious proposition.

When was the last time you celebrated in a significant developmental accomplishment from a direct report?

When is your business (and life) going to slow down.

Here’s what i see coming…

You’re 60, wishing you’d have listened to the whispers.

But you’re never getting that decade back.

Sure your business gave you incredible financial rewards.

Is that feeding your soul in the way you want, at 60?

What example have you set for your children?

Epiphany

Who will make us believe balance is possible? Who will teach your children if not you? Photo: Epcot yesterday, American Adventure.

Epiphany.

Yesterday was the Catholic Church calendar’s “Epiphany”.

Epiphanies are rocket fuel.

Here’s to your blast off with new awareness.

Waiting and doing nothing are the twin siblings of self-destruction.

Twenty years into a 30+ year Disney career, i had an epiphany about work/life balance.

Searching unsuccessfully for a role model at Disney, it hit me.

i must figure this out for myself.

These five daily blogs are a manifestation of my strategy and tactics.

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Protect your warm heart

Yesterday during bicycle ride past Disney Springs. Disney’s attention to detail is a happiness trigger for me. So is Stitch.

Protect your warm heart.

What?

A simple life hack for experiencing a degree of career freedom is to have happiness triggers.

Happiness triggers are images, words, phrases, prayers, people, habits, rituals, places, memories, etc, etc.

Happiness triggers do not permanently and overwhelmingly solve for an imbalanced life, but they do help buy moments of relief as you journey to need fewer and fewer moments of relief.

Climb that mountain

Yesterday, At Orlando’s Mall at Millenia.

Do you have peace with who you are?

Are you content with what you have?

Do you feel grateful for the way you love and are loved?

‘Tis the season.

Ya know?

Only your spirit can fulfill what you need. Only your mind can discern what makes sense. Only your body can do the work required for whatever you decide. Only your work ethic will keep you motivated when the going gets tough. Only your home will provide daily respite and refreshment from your waking hours.
