Simultaneous translation gratitude

Diego and Vivian shared simultaneous translation duties backstage.

Simultaneous translation gratitude goes to Diego (pictured above) and Vivian (whom i met after the photo opportunity).

The original goal – and i asked permission to do this publicly – was to say thanks to Diego and Vivian at the speech’s start so the audience could feel a connection to the Spanish voice in their ear, translating the Disney Creativity messages.

Dear Son, i forgot.

PS. Asked Thinking Heads to get their emails so i could apologize. They were gone soon after my speech.

Ain’t no glamour on the road

While i missed being there Saturday night as our Son and his friends had dinner at our home, i remain content for being at all the other dinners they’ve shared at our place. After dinner, they went to Universal Studios for Grad Night.

Had the airport car service drop me off at neighborhood entrance and i walked home from there. Entering our back yard is an indescribably peaceful experience.

Ain’t no glamour on the road.

The effort required to make it back home from Kuwait was anything but joyful.

The world isn’t perfect, of course.

Sometimes, it’s not even excellent.

Then i remind myself that whatever is irritating me is only a first-world problem and i immediately return to a peaceful and grounded state of being.

Son, when you learn to recognize that your biggest “issues” are trivial compared to many people’s issues, you will find a peace and contentment that allows you to thrive.

Having an incurable disease is a huge lifetime challenge. The good news is you live in America with access to the best the medical world can offer.

Waiting at the hospital was exciting yesterday

Waiting at the hospital was exciting yesterday.

Why?

Because i was invited to discuss how i might help the CEO and his team.

It was a 12-mile drive one way.

The airport is twice as far. Then there’s a long wait to board, and then generally a long flight.

Round trip for this meeting was under one hour.

Stumble Upon

i almost lowered my over-focused standard

Hyatt Garand Hotel Bogota
Brand new Hyatt Grand Hotel.

 

The spirit of my over-focusing at the exotic lunch turned out to be highly noticed.

Last night Ben and i had a few hours of quality time together and during our conversations, it randomly came up…

Ben told me it inspired him.

What?

The fact that i acted so intentionally to prepare – the day before the speech – to be at my best state for the speech delivery.

Everyone you encounter can teach you something valuable.

i gave Ben a gift.

He gave me one too.

Stuff We Do

Missing Sunday Mass (again)

Bob Iger time magazine
Stumbled upon this article yesterday on LinkedIn. We’ve earned another amazing business award.

 

Missing Sunday Mass (again).

Catching a Lyft in an hour for Orlando International Airport.

Heading north (Charlotte) and then west (Littel Rock).

Delivering a Disney Keynote Speech tomorrow morning.

So yeah, preaching the Gospel according to Walt.

Finding solace knowing every step we take is “church”.

It matters little to walk to do the preaching if not the walking is the preaching. – unknown
