Living with this reality makes me feel alive.

If we don’t gloss over what happens around us

Red Tailed Hawk in yard
Yesterday while on a client call…

 

Sitting at my office desk, looking through the window shade, provides a great view of our front yard.

While talking to a Michigan client yesterday, i watched the Red Tailed Hawk (above) fly down from a tree with a fresh catch in its talons.

My guess is it was a baby squirrel.

Whatever it was, it was limp and much bigger than a mouse.

While nature is, in reality, brutal, it is also a literally perfect ecosystem that has been in place for millions of years.

What can we learn from this and how can we apply it to our daily lives?

The gift of life is not guaranteed.

Live like you mean it.

Those lofty quotes are manifesting themselves in reality

Disney Customer Service Magic Keynote Speakers
Man on a mission.

 

The lofty quotes i grew up on and thought only the most driven, talented, and successful people could epitomize are actually manifesting themselves in my reality.

It’s literally an out-of-body experience because what’s happening now is in line with my wildest dreams.

The challenge now is to figure out how to distill my own journey into simple, original, fresh, and inspiring quotes for coming generations.

Yeah, that sounded egotistical.

Another reality is that this kinda comes with the territory.

Praying for a marketing ambassador to say and do the right (and creative) things to promote my business so i no longer have to feel awkward saying nice things about myself.

Please don't tell me

Wisdom is…

Walt Disney quote
Walking to the High School Gym for the basketball game last night.

 

Wisdom is understanding that pleasure doesn’t bring lasting joy, contribution does.

And the only (impossible?) way to make this happen is to practice what you preach.

And the mandatory (impossible?) way to master this is to only preach what you practice.

Your contribution starts with helping yourself first.

Impossible?

Don’t promise, only do.

Crossroads – the metaphor for where we are and the decisions before us

orlando executive airport
Not LaGuardia or Toronto, for sure

 

Dear Son, last night’s talk may be forgotten years from now, however, it is the hottest topic we’ve talked about in a while.

Crossroads.

The metaphor for where we are and the decisions before us.

The fact that we only have 36 hours together in a 13-day window will challenge our creativity.

Return from Winnipeg one day, pause at home one day, leave again in a few hours for Halifax.

Real life in real time.

Insight: Excuses be damned.
