Finding wisdom from a sit-com?

Young Sheldon
Today’s post is inspired by watching last night’s recording of a Young Sheldon episode. Here young Sheldon is in a dream talking to God who reveals life is binary – made up of ones and zeros.

 

Finding wisdom from a sit-com?

Yes.

Last night.

Young Sheldon.

His “Mamma”, a strict Baptist, finally came to a beautiful realization with her son, a genius.

After much parental struggle, she told her 10-year old son, “Seek your own truth.”

Duly noted.

Which would a Marketer use to attract “believers”?

WPS 2016 Boys cross country
Can you picture “believers” (whatever that means) racing to get closer?

 

At last Sunday’s service (at LifeBridge) the preacher read, “Demands of loyalty and obedience”.

And i immediately thought what about demands for generosity, forgiveness, non-judgement, compassion?

Which would a Marketer use to attract “believers”?

It’s not going to last, so don’t try to make it last

Space Mountain
Walking back to the car, i’ve never seen Space Mountain lit like this before. The combo of artificial light and the sunset was remarkable.

 

It’s not going to last, so don’t try to make it last.

None of us will live forever.

This means absolutely nothing to most of us.

Now imagine if it meant everything.

Can’t do it, right?

Too intense, no?

Dying with regret sounds too intense, to me, to be honest.

So let me say this in plain English – there has always been a finite time span for each of us.

Time.

Limited.

Extinguishable.

No exceptions.

Period.

Clearer?

The goal, therefore, is to live in the moment, because the moment, in reality, is all we have right now.

Live like you mean it

The time is now (and always has been)

Disney executive coach jeff noel
Took this yesterday and reflected on the temptation to back out of my decision to retire after 30 years.

 

The time is now (and always has been).

In 2009 i created a 10-year plan.

Six years in the making and commencing at age 49, i planned to retire from Disney at 55 (in 2014) after my 30th Disney anniversary.

Two years out (2012) i started questioning if the first four years of convincing myself this was a great decision, well, if it was still the right decision.

It would have been insanely easy to say no.

Winnie, can you help my Dad?

Nursing home double occupancy room
Winfield is behind the curtain. A 15-year old is bedside.

 

Winnie, can you help my Dad?

i know you’re 101 year-old, bed-ridden body leaves you physically incapacitated, but my goodness, your mind – your mind is astonishing.

Can you help me, educate me, and encourage me to develop a deeper and wider wisdom about what it’s like to stare death in the face every day?

And through this and with this, help my 90-year old Father-in-Law fight a good fight every day.
