Public virtue, private vice

Same shoe, different colors. Same person, different behaviors. Photo: Yesterday at Millenia Mall after picking up Apple Watch.

Dr Jeykl and Mr Hyde, we all know the gist of the story.

By day one person, by night a monster.

In High School, one student’s dad was our Pastor and essentially, it’s hard to be the guy in the pulpit seven days a week.

Just because it’s challenging, doesn’t mean we should give up trying.

The Other Side

Running to something or from something?

florida pool owner
Did i mention there have been photo upload challenges since the website hosting platform migration recently? Of course i have. Optimistic for a resolution soon.

Regarding leaders (including our previous self) who are perceived with low integrity. You want to leave your company because of your negative perception of a leader?

Does quitting and moving on:

  • Does it change who you serve?
  • Does it change the way you serve them?
  • And does it make it harder to do those things?

Running away Leaving might be a sign of personal issues and blind spots.

Moving on just might be the most courageous decision of your entire career.

The challenge is this won’t become clear until later.

Son, my 2014 Disney departure (official retirement at 55) was six years in the making. It was the perfect move at the perfect time.

Please don't tell me

Truth and not truth

Truth and not truth.

None of us wants other people telling us what we should or shouldn’t do.

Especially when we were teenagers and adults (parents, teachers, coaches) could, and were expected to, tell us what to do.

And yet.

And yet there have been others who cared enough to share a blind spot i never knew i had.

Of course this is painful.

And once we get past the pain, we are free to transform as we move toward our next birthday.

How Can You Tell?

What you do thunders so loudly

clip bar history
Clif bar history…almost everything good (or bad) starts from a small and humble seed.

 

You are what you do, not what you say you’re gonna do.

What you do thunders so loudly, i can’t hear what you say.

Dislike your job (your boss, lack of opportunity, repetitiveness, hours, following orders, etc) and dream of being your own boss?

Guess how we can tell if you mean it.

Old emails from 2010

Epcot water pool
If this was a reflection pool (at Epcot, in 2012), what would we see in ourselves?

 

Removed the name of the person who commented on my Facebook conversation:

“I hope I’m wrong about this but it sounds like the exchange between you and Carl is you don’t care about what anyone else thinks…even about those who do struggle with depression or the lack of motivation everyday…all that matters is your ” happy, motivated everyday attitude and to the rest be damned”. If that be true for you both it’s a very self centered view. To be sure life is short but in part we’re here to help those who do struggle everyday. I think you need to get your “give a damn” fixed.”

Not sure how to comment on the reflection i’m having from an eight-year od FB conversation, but this is the one thing i’m leaning on now: Let she who has not sinned, cast the first stone.

Final note: This was placed in a file in 2010 with the intent to let some time pass and then respond unemotionally. Totally forgot about it until the recent email purge (in 2018).
