Adventure is out there

Jody Maberry had not been to Pixar Pier until last night.

Adventure is out there.

Indeed it is.

In a busy world, we can become incredibly inactive and have poor stamina (cardio, endurance).

We don’t notice how ineffective we’ve become because it happened so insidiously. Plus, most of the people we see everyday are in the same inactive, low-stamina place.

This is not good for our spirit.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

From not being able to afford a tent

From not being able to afford a tent for the 1982 cross-country bicycle trip, to having a Disneyland Hotel room facing Disneyland, Downtown Disney, and Disney’s California Adventure…

How did this happen?

Feeling deep humility and gratitude for the opportunity to do work that matters.

Near mile marker 12.

 

Have been walking without orthotics for over a month. Experimenting with the notion of detaching from the 12-year effort using prescription, custom foot supports to help manage chronic plantar fasciitis.

A week ago, i began running three miles at a time without orthotics.

Praying i don’t do too much too soon.

Praying, also, that none of us do.

Journey On

Semper Gumby

We make big, exciting plans and then the unpredictable happens. What then? Our 14 year old runs a fever and isn’t up for walking around a hot theme park all day.

We abandon the happiest place on Earth and opt for plan b. Laguna Beach here we come.

Make the best of whatever comes our way.

Change what we can and let go of what we can’t.

Reliable spiritual mediocrity

Disney Customer Service Speaker jeff noel

 

Disneyland's Carnation Cafe

 

Disneyland's Main Street Burger

 

Reliable spiritual mediocrity.

Do what the herd does and shoot for customer satisfaction. Or use exceptional focus and discipline to exceed every expectation at every touch point.

Disney over manages things most ignore or completely under manage.

It’s like an enlightening spiritual experience the way Disney creates such a consistently fantastic Guest experience.

Like drilling down to the insignificant detail of having a “Main Street Burger” on the menu, on Main Street, USA.

How can you visit Main Street and not have one?
