Temptation please?

GNP.

Virtue alone can’t build character. Temptation must have a hand.

What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Inhale goodness

Spirit Airlines
There’s an energy in this photo that is stimulating. Yesterday leaving Orlando. Our pool reached 91 degrees.

Sitting directly across from the dining hall dessert table, it was tempting to find a good reason to break from the no-sugar commitment.

Two tables offered up a dozen enticing dessert selections (plus there’s a self-service hand-scooped ice cream station nearby).

Freshman 15 (or 20) is a real thing, that’s how it became a phrase.

Be careful with habits, rituals, self-control, and personal vibrancy goals.

Inhale excellence, not desserts.

PS. No desserts were harmed last night…only inhaled the goodness.

Consistently attacked by a busy schedule?

Hang glider failure
On ABC Evening News with David Muir last night, a report of a tourist mishap during a Swiss Alps hang gliding flight.

 

Hang glider failure
The pilot failed to strap the tourist to the hang glider. It took a while until the pilot could land the aircraft. The tourist broke his wrist on the fall and tore his bicep – how he hung on for so long is a miracle. They were at heights that had he lost his grip he would have died. Was the pilot in a hurry?

 

The drive to do good is consistently attacked by the pressure and stress of a busy schedule.

It is infinitely easier to succumb to this daily pressure using the three main human go-to responses to reduce or eliminate the friction (pain).

Distraction, entertainment, and medication.

This becomes a habit quickly.

Be careful.

Better to fight it while the fire is small than after it has become a raging wildfire.

Great storytelling through animation.

That’s Disney’s DNA.

Even live action movies are animated.

Loved the conflict between good and evil.

The Other Side

Some days it doesn’t happen in the morning

10 grade XC runner
Three days ago he had multiple reasons to quit, but he finished anyway.

 

Some days it doesn’t happen in the morning; writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts every day.

Everyday for 7.3 years.

Normally, all five are written before sunrise.

On those days when the pressure of a busy schedule is higher and the duration is long, i’m tempted to finally make an exception to the not missing a single day part.

But i don’t succumb.

Ever.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
