Final 120 Days

Personal responsibility is your highest priority

Technology isn’t the answer for organizational creativity.
John Faurote, the owner, credits the middle guy for his company.

Technology isn’t the answer for organizational creativity. Technology is simply one of many delivery systems in which you exceed your customer’s, employee’s and shareholder’s expectations.

Religion isn’t the answer for emotional vibrancy. Religion is simply one of many delivery systems in which you manage your emotions, relationships (including the one you have with yourself), and life-purpose.

One Question A Day?

What does humanity gain by not changing?

Disney Keynote Speakers
University of Iowa, a few years ago. Invited back again and again because of the ability to help them .think .differently

Most people need love and acceptance a lot more than they need advice. – Bob Goff

Read this on LinkedIn yesterday.

It stopped me.

i thought for a few minutes and then had to type this train of thought…

i agree with Bob.

But betting i differ on where “most people” would find enough generous love and acceptance.

In the mirror.

Love and acceptance is an inside job.

The Internet (or a library) offers unlimited learning. Somewhere along human evolution, we’ve neglected teaching our youth the power of the growth mindset and personal accountability for our mind, body, spirit, work, and home.

We shun this opportunity during public and private education.

And thus send generation after generation into adulthood, and parenting, only to perpetuate our current reality.

We may assume that we, ourselves, have also been sent into adulthood unprepared, because our parents were sent out unprepared.

As a misfit, i’m simply a dad that recognizes the much is and decided to break the chain.

In a perfect world, Son, you will be much better at this than i have been.

Unanswered Questions?

Parent, how dare you

Common sense health advice
Yesterday while waiting for my monthly allergy shots (i get 3 shots every visit). Common sense, eh?

 

During yesterday’s hour-long client meeting, we discussed purpose and meaning – professionally and personally.

His good friend (married, kids, established medical doctor) wants to be a screenwriter.

The impression i got is that the Doc no longer finds enough joy in his work to continue practicing medicine.

It was a career expectation that began with his parents.

Decades later he’s miserable, uncertain, and fearful.

Why?

He helps so many people.

But it’s not enough to fill his void.

i saw me through Your eyes.

(“Your” in this case is God)

Chapin, acceptance and attention make you happy.

This is true for nearly every human.

Learn how to feed yourself and you will find constant acceptance and attention.
