The times they are a changing

themed mailbox
Mailbox gets themed-makeovers multiple times a year.
Disney's Space Mountain
Yesterday.
New Disney Tron Attraction
To the right of Space Mountain, Tron under construction. Also yesterday.
Transplanting a Disney tree
Bicycling South on World Drive. On the right just before the Main WDW Toll Plaza overpass. Yesterday, you guessed it.
translating huge Oak Tree at Disney
The crew told me it takes a month to dig up and transplant.

The times they are a changing – a Bob Dylan song. And a global reminder 24/7 right now.

This is always true.

In the midst of our global pandemic outbreak, we have already experienced unprecedented change.

More on the way.

Then there’s you.

Your daily, lifetime change is insidiously small, literally undetectable, the way a tree grows in your front yard.

You never see things changing until you move away and return years later.

Wow, look how big that tree has become.

Note: World-class wakeup calls are gifts sent from the Universe to get our attention. What we do with the message we receive is generally a big sigh of relief when the bad thing has passed, and then life goes back to the way it was before.

Pretty sure we should not let that happen.

Unanswered Questions?

Always get bored

Are we there yet? How much longer?

Always get bored?

Yes.

What?

Always get bored with unanswered questions.

Become so bored with unanswered questions that you take action to become un-bored.

Figure things out well enough that your poor habits and rituals make you ill and impatient to transform.

Never get bored – motivation to transform is an inside job.

i know you know this.

Yes, and…

Knowing and not doing is the same as not knowing.

Dear Son

Now, i’m crystal clear on the opposite

quotes
Recent FB memory, from 4 years ago, populated my feed.

 

 

In the past, rejection used to define me.

Why?

Because i let it.

Because i thought that is how it’s supposed to work.

But solitude, self-reflection, teaching, writing, and focusing on being an example rather than a warning have allowed me to see, think, and do differently.

Now, i’m crystal clear on the opposite.

Rejection doesn’t define me, my reaction to rejection does.

Please don't tell me

One small change can change everything (good or not good)

A break from Disney storyboarding because i just stumbled upon this video and it’s so important because it reinforces the power of small change. And a storyboard allows for identifying, and then either adding or eliminating, small changes that can make something better or detract from it.

Wolves had been gone from Yellowstone for 70 years, when 14 wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995. This five-minute video is remarkable and astonishing.

 

 

Every action we take has a ripple effect.

There are positive ripples and there are less than positive ripples.

The good news is that a positive change can reverse years of poor choices.

The bad news is it works the other way too.

Is it worth the discomfort of changing?

Is it worth the discomfort of changing?

To move from being intentional most of the time to being intentional all of the time.

Is it worth it?

Why would any of us deny ourselves the freedom to choose?
