This Might Change Your Life

.think .differently

Jack Jack, Simba, Nemo, Dash – youth who will go on to become CEO of You, Inc. Right now, they are definitely not CEO of You, Inc. Teach them how to be a great CEO. Photo: Lillian, Walt, and Diane Disney.

i can never be bored enough, frustrated enough, or whine enough to think that my life would suddenly change as a result of thinking negative thoughts and behaving negatively.

Doesn’t work that way. Never has. Never will.

Whatever you are, you become better at and more of.

This “becoming better at” can be an asset or a liability:

  • Negative thoughts yield more and bigger negative thoughts
  • Positive thoughts yield more and bigger positive thoughts

You can change what you become by thinking different thoughts.

As CEO of You, Inc this is your responsibility, no one else’s.

Live like you mean it

Why would you not?

Glacier National Park…random photo choice for this post.

Why would you not pray first thing upon awakening?

Why would you not say Grace or an equivalent before every dinner?

Why?

Do any of your reasons sound legit?

If you do both of these with world-class consistency, do any of your reasons “for” sound illegitimate?

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Week

jeff and cheryl noel at Magic Kingdom
Cheryl at her Disney Cast Member Years of Service Celebration recently.

Here’s a train of thought for the new decade that begins in three days:

  • Moment
  • Hour
  • Day
  • Week
  • Month
  • Quarter
  • Year
  • Decade
  • Life

If Disney Ran Your Life, you learn to instinctively over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

You learn to be intentional where you used to be unintentional.

The power that a decision we make in a week has the power to grow and influence by the month.

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.

Please don't tell me

Generational DNA

Breakfast meeting notes written on the back of this paper wrapper for the napkin/silverware bundle.
So much power, so little space.

Generational DNA.

Met yesterday with a business owner, fellow High School parent, and an ambitious, insightful, and hopeful middle-aged man.

He developed and teaches entrepreneurial studies to high school students locally and nation-wide.

His conclusion is that teens are frightened, insecure, and literally paralyzed by their fear.

Further, he believes their ability to take in-person risks (not social media risks) is catastrophically (my word) low.

He theorized this phenomenon is the result of the first parental generation to raise digital natives.

Because this is a first-in-our-world’s-history, it will take a generation or two to correct any massively detrimental generational habits.
