Final 120 Days

Four genres for self-reflection

Yesterday while sitting at home office desk. Swallow-Tail Kites (birds of prey) are rare.

There’s a book called Heart, Smarts, Guts and Luck. (This is not a recommendation, by the way…just wanted to give credit for the four topics)

Heart, Smarts, Guts, and Luck.

Or, as i am committed to self-reflection…

Mind • Body • Spirit • Money • HQ

Guts is another way to describe risk-taking and overcoming fear.

Luck is defined in my world as “over-focusing on the same things i used to under-focus on or ignore”.

Stay hungry

Stay hungry.

Never let your memories be bigger than your dreams.

When you feel stuck – and you will – don’t stay long.

Stay hungry.

Hunger helps you find a solution.

Ever think like this?

Disney author jeff noel
Writing last night at Magic Kingdom, Day 100. Moments later, the woman in green sat on the step behind me (where the camera sat to take this photo.)

 

Little did i know the self-timer would catch the 86-year old woman (in green) as i was chronicling Day 100 of an impossible one-year writing challenge.

We spoke for 15 minutes and several times i mentioned i must leave to make the short trip home for dinner with my Family.

Even mentioned having an annual pass to add context for why anyone would leave Magic Kingdom at 7pm on a Friday night.

Later last night, the realization that not once did she ask anything about me.

When we age, do we become self-centered? Do we become lonely?

This brief experience is an opportunity to question ourselves and look in the mirror. Are we more like, or unlike, her?

Does it even matter?

Being still and quiet should never be far away

Epcot’s Canada pavilion. Yesterday (a day early) i sent my client a text of this, telling her, “i’m in Canada today.”

 

Being quiet, still even, is rare. And valuable. Kinda like a power docking station for our spirit.

Even with a busy three-day business trip, i plan on carving out quiet, self-reflective space from otherwise busy days in unfamiliar places, surrounded by unfamiliar people.

When and how often should we indulge in self-reflection?

When do we have time to reflect on our life, what it means, and what we should do to help others (including ourselves)?

When, and how often should we indulge in self-reflection?
