Guilty Feeling

Wide Open Spaces
Wide Open Spaces

What makes humans feel guilt?

What makes you feel guilty?

Know what makes me feel guilty?

Goodness.

This week, my son and I have taken several sunset walks. We end up in our back yard. A really big back yard. The sun has set, and now it’s twilight.

“Son, look around. Do you see how much space is here in this yard, from one side to the other?”

He says, “Yes.”

“I’m not saying that other sized yards are better or worse. I’m just saying that Mommy and Daddy worked really, really hard to make this yard possible.”

For something like seven years, Cheryl and I spent, what seemed like a majority of our weekends looking for a big yard near Walt Disney World.

The first 15 years in Central Florida, I worked every weekend, and had either a Saturday or a Sunday off, but never both.

And on that lone weekend day off, we combed the area north of Disney, south of Disney, east of Disney, west of Disney.

The result? Nothing. Year after year. Nothing.

Until one day….

jeff noel Lane 8 Continuous Improvement

jeff noel from Lane 8, in a short You Tube video clip, speaking on continuous improvement and Disney creativity.

You can not improve what you do not measure. How would you know?

This is why I run with a stopwatch. Pretty simple solution, but it wasn’t apparent initially. I had contemplated driving home or just completely not worrying about it.

Once I decided to do without, the creative juices, from 25 years in a Fortune 100 Company, kicked in.

It worked out great and was a nice solution.

The harder I work, the luckier I get.

Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
