Happy Summer Solstice

Couple days ago. Photo: Louisville, Kentucky where we met in 2018. It was all i could do to not smile. This moment lasted .5 seconds.

Use your talent to deliver your punchline.

Your punchline is what you offer that others benefit from.

Use your skill for the well-being of humanity.

Sent the photo to Michael Jr yesterday and a note. He replied back and sent a link to his March 20, 2020 Covid-19 comedy movie, More Than Funny. It’s funny, but no longer public.

He’s has a ton of free videos, he’s clean, and incredibly funny (and inspiring).

Note: On this April 21, 2020 morning, Summer Solstice seems so far away. It’s not. Grateful for being mindful that it’s coming and find it interesting that the solstice’s arrival is the same day before (yesterday) this publishes.

Luck?

Make your career your ministry

Christmas card.
Peeked out the bedroom window at 3:05 AM.

Make your career your ministry.

What if everything we did “as a career” was directly tied to our call to serve others?

Magic happens when people not only see and think differently, but especially when they act differently.

Helping others see, think, and do differently is why i exist.

Give for pleasure

Doing a repetitive job as our main focus is boring, eventually, and rather quickly, actually. At Disney we capitalize on the discretionary efforts of every employee – making others happy by going the extra-inch makes the giver happy too.

Give for pleasure. When i teach about going the extra inch to exceed customer expectations, it can, and if it suits you should, be done selfishly for pleasure.

At the end of the day, employees should have no option except this one – to deliver the wow-factor.

What is generous, is for an individual as CEO of You Inc, to pick from whatever lights your motivational fire.

Motivated to do it for altruistic reasons? Perfect.

Motivated because in the giving you receive? Great.

Motivated simply for the pleasure it brings you? Wonderful.

Serve so others benefit, especially yourself.

Big shoes to fill

Big shoes to fill.

What?

My office bookshelf is filled with Walt Disney inspiration. There are a few Steve Jobs, Glacier National Park, and Seth Godin items too.

And then there’s little old me.

An insignificant army of one.

What will we do with our remaining time on Earth?

Big shoes need to be filled by somebody.

Why not you?

Especially if you can have fun doing it and if it doesn’t feel like work.

My next is getting inspiringly clearer

Jeffrey Gitomer’s email message arrived yesterday. To which i have been espousing this personal mantra since 10th grade (1975), “Repetition is the mother of all learning.”

My next is getting inspiringly clearer.

Do you have a “next”?

What is your next?

Congrats on having an immediate answer. That’s a powerful self-signal.

My next is a three-year goal from June 8, 2019 to June 8, 2022. This means i’m five months into it already.

It is a reprise of the audacious and inspiring 10-year goal from June 2009 – June 2019.

What is inspiringly noteworthy is the fact that i’ve already made peace with life from that decade-long goal to do everything in life i wanted to if i lived only to my 60th birthday.

No male on my dad’s side lived past 60. i am the first.

This “next” is sharper, more poignant, and 70% shorter, making the urgency heightened.

A deadline (urgency, if you will) is a remarkable decision-making tool.

There’s no time to put things off.

Saying no, saying maybe, or saying later is no longer acceptable.

This inspires the heck out of me.
