One Question A Day?

What does humanity gain by not changing?

Disney Keynote Speakers
University of Iowa, a few years ago. Invited back again and again because of the ability to help them .think .differently

Most people need love and acceptance a lot more than they need advice. – Bob Goff

Read this on LinkedIn yesterday.

It stopped me.

i thought for a few minutes and then had to type this train of thought…

i agree with Bob.

But betting i differ on where “most people” would find enough generous love and acceptance.

In the mirror.

Love and acceptance is an inside job.

The Internet (or a library) offers unlimited learning. Somewhere along human evolution, we’ve neglected teaching our youth the power of the growth mindset and personal accountability for our mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

We shun this opportunity during public and private education.

And thus send generation after generation into adulthood, and parenting, only to perpetuate our current reality.

We may assume that we, ourselves, have also been sent into adulthood unprepared, because our parents were sent out unprepared.

As a misfit, i’m simply a dad that recognizes the much is and decided to break the chain.

In a perfect world, Son, you will be much better at this than i have been.

What about a TED talk on fitness?

What about a TED talk on fitness?

Absolutely.

How about a TED Talk on anything?

Absolutely.

After today, there are only nine days from completing a full decade of writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts. Plus, this month marks two consecutive decades of being a full-time speaker.

If it was someone else, i’d think, “Bet they could talk intelligently about anything relating to life-balance”.

Be careful what you wish for

Santiago, Chile
Santiago, Chile from the W Hotel.

Santiago, Chile
Home for 36 hours.

Santiago, Chile
Room with a view.

Santiago, Chile
Loaners.

Be careful what you wish for.

The goal is to do moderate travel – most likely internationally – until our Son starts college in nine months.

There’s a chance this thing (demand for my speaking) could explode.

Inspiration is derived from emotion

detachment
Yesterday another random find on Pinterest. Spiritual strength is required for detachment and healthy, balanced living. Detachment and serenity are twins.

 

Listening to a podcast yesterday on balance i was struck by the absence (in the podcast message) of any sort of spiritual element.

Perhaps this omission is driven by the adage, “At work, never talk about sex, politics, or religion.”

What else could it be?

Spiritual awareness, spiritual values, and spiritual action.

Inspiration is derived from emotion.

Emotion is to spirit as movement is to health.

Foundational.

Necessary.

Non-negotiable.
