The three things in speaking work here too

Disney’s Epcot Mexico pavilion merchandise table.

The three audience objectives i use in keynote speeches work here too.

  • Have fun
  • .think .differently
  • Lean into discomfort

As you reflect on what’s at the core of your spiritual and emotional beliefs, do these three things and you will find greater clarity and more joy.

The Other Side

You can observe a lot by watching

College dormitory corner room
This open-windowed corner dorm room caught my eye from the dining hall last night. The higher (3rd floor) view and the rare, additional window make it a prized location for an over-focused student. Th fact that you gain (unauthorized) roof access is also appealing for the right college student.

You can observe a lot by watching.

Watching is more difficult, and perhaps dormant when our devices supersede our desire to grow and interact with our surroundings.

From my experience, college is the single most important opportunity to interact with your life.

Why?

Because you only cross this threshold between teenage years and early twenties once, and then it’s gone forever.

The loss of slowness

florida living
Yesterday afternoon’s nap location. The rain encouraged me to sit outside, and eventually, convinced me to close the MacBook and get comfortable. That sign, upper right…

 

going to the sun road sign
Going-To-The-Sun Road. T-minus 10 days.

 

The loss of slowness.

The rarity of quiet contemplation.

The battle between the overwhelm, distraction, connectivity – and – solitude, reflection, and peace.

Where does this battle leave you in your day-to-day?

Are you ok with it?

Still fighting for victory?

Given up?

What’s your next move?

Hurry, the clock is ticking.

She said her brain exploded

 

She said her brain exploded, after we talked for close to an hour, while i was out for a run.

We talked about small business entrepreneurial challenges and opportunities, branding, creativity, vision, and more. Afterwards, i sent her the video (above) and the photo at the next blog, because it capture the essence on my personal (Disney) brand.

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.
