Surrender helps even in small details

selfie stick
Purchased at Apple Store in Maryland yesterday but it accidentally got shipped home. Neither i nor the Apple employee could figure out how to cancel it.

Surrender helps even in small details. Didn’t need to purchase a selfie stick yesterday, but the idea of having one to improve my business videos intrigues me. So in the moment, i made a decision to buy on the spot rather than wait and debate it’s value.

Because it’s small, i knew it would fit in my backpack for the flight home. And, i could experiment with it today on our college visit.

Inadvertently, the purchase was shipped, so i couldn’t leave the store with it.

The quickest solve for this was simply to accept it and let it go.

Is it your goal or your reward?

Yesterday. A great tool for my speaking, writing, coaching, and podcast business.

Is it your goal or your reward?

What?

Money.

And peace of mind.

The Facebook Messenger note had the seed of death

Disney Business books
Disney Business books fill some of my shelves.

When we are at our best, we are unafraid of death.

When are we at our best and when do feel this way?

Never?

Maybe.

A week ago, the Facebook note was sent to nine people in messenger…the first people that came to mind in sharing the news.

i was in that group.

The message said that a dear Disney Institute colleague was “very sick” in the hospital.

First glance made it sound bad but not terminal.

My take leaned to terminal.

So i reached out to someone in our group i thought knew the most.

i , unfortunately, was correct.

In a matter of days, the Disney Institute (from the early 2000’s) group has grown to 40+.

Most of us will see each other in two days at her funeral.

At some point, our daily efforts should slowly and steadily begin our preparation for our exit.

We’re in charge of this and it ain’t no secret.

Too busy, right?

Blessed Beyond Measure?

Are you living the dream yet wanting more?

What a privilege to visit Disney’s Magic Kingdom with Jody Maberry.

 

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
We are by Lee Cockerell’s Disney Window on Main Street.

From serious to not-serious in 0.06 seconds.

 

Lee Cockerell's Disney window
This was where we stood, in the shadow of greatness.

 

Jody Maberry at Disney
A 30-second walk further and we stopped to enjoy the locals dancing and singing.

 

Jody Maberry and jeff noel
A few minutes later, more singing and dancing by the locals. It was cool for Chapin to meet Jody at our house and tag along to Magic Kingdom.

 

Are you living the dream yet wanting more?

Here’s how it probably shakes out for most of us.

  1. We have everything we need but can’t see it.
  2. We have an inaccurate definition for “having it all”.

To help me process this as i neared my 50th birthday in 2009, i wrote a book that focuses on:

• rethinking

• reprioritizing

• recommitting

 

Jody Maberry hosts Lee Cockerell’s podcast, Creating Disney Magic as well as Dan Cockerell’s podcast, Come Rain or Shine.
