Whatever we blame

Demand Excellence message from Disney executive
From Leslie Ferraro’s (joined Disney 1999) notepad gift to all Disney leaders. Maybe 2013-ish?
Foster creativity and innovation message
Leslie didn’t last long, unfortunately, as a female Disney Executive.

Whatever one of us blames in another, each one will find in his own heart.

Seneca

A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.

Thomas Merton

We judge ourselves on our intentions, others judge us on our behaviors.

The Other Side

Saint Patrick

Roy O Disney statue
Saint Roy. Roy came out of retirement after Walt died in 1966. Roy stood here in 1971 to deliver the dedication speech.
Roy O Disney statue at Magic Kingdom
Roy and Minnie statues followed several years after the Walt and Mickey Partner’s statue in the Magic Kingdom Hub.

Saint Patrick is credited for bringing Christianity to Ireland.

He’s lessor known for green beer and nationwide worldwide drunkenness.

The power over alcohol is the power over anything you want.

Conversely, alcohol’s power over judgement is power over everything.

Being drunk is basically an anesthetic medication to numb the pain of your reality.

The cure, if we can call it that, is to live a life that doesn’t require an habitual escape from pain.

How do i know?

A lifetime of personal experience.

Our Choices Make Us

Tailgater grace

Disney University
Yesterday. Joy to the world is so appropriate. Every day. All day.

Tailgater grace?

Yes.

On the two-lane road behind Disney University, a driver began tailgating my car.

Younger versions of me had varying degrees of impatience, anger, retaliation, etc.

Those pangs are still mildly felt occasionally.

They surfaced for an instant yesterday and in an instant, they evaporated.

Pulled into the subdivision right-hand turning lane and let the tailgater pass.

Eased back onto the highway and life was instantly peaceful again.

Disney Customer Service book

As i sit and write, who’s busier?

Disney Speaker
From here, only a 7.5-mile walk to the “hotel”.

 

As i sit and write, who’s busier?

The small rugged room is filling with people who are chatting with other hikers, yet they themselves are hurrying along – they spend less than 24 hours in this most beautiful setting.

Why?

Because they are busy getting on to the next stop.

All of them.

One night and then dust in the wind.

Then there’s the guy with his laptop, intentionally distancing himself the others, shunning the small talk.

Why?

He has work to do.

We can bet a few may feel sorry for the person who can’t get away from his laptop. (i’d be tempted to think that if the roles were reversed)

And i smile and remind myself (to shed any temptation for personal guilt) i’m at work.

The purpose here in Glacier National Park isn’t to escape, it’s to work.

How glorious is that?

The conversing i get to do happens later in the day when today’s work is done.

Dear Son

Here’s how to test if you’re judgemental or not

inconsiderate car parking
Do unto others? Do not judge.

 

Do unto others?

Do not judge.

As we were leaving last night’s College Admissions presentation at the High School, we spotted this.

First thought is, “What a jerk the car on the left is.”

Right?

That would be judging. No?

So don’t fall prey to weakness.

Here’s how to test if you’re judgemental or not.

Ask, “What if the car on the right parked after the left car parked and made a conscious choice to exit out the passenger side?”

As one of the first arrivals to the 7pm meeting, we saw a few parents and students arrive after the session started.

The pressures and choices of daily living can be stressful and influence our decisions.
