Yesterday’s extended horse and buggy ride was delightful. Our Bahamian driver Michael was born in New Jersey, and his horse, Dr Seuss, is from Lancaster, PA – within 30 miles of my hometown.

It’s a small world after all.

As it goes sometimes, there is a solid reason for missing the scheduled endurance (run) and strength (gym) activity.

Securing the home and driving to Port Canaveral yesterday were legit enough for me.

Who feels like going to the gym during a Cruise?

Almost no one.

Today, Monday, is a gym day.

Sustainable employee culture

Disney Cruise Line app
We decided to go about a week ago.

 

Sustainable employee culture?

 

Today’s posts were inspired by this one.

(repetition is the mother of all learning – we are what we repeatedly do – habits; culture is simply the collective habits an organization holds people accountable for)

Most executives, most staff, and most organization spend the majority of their days doing good or very good work.

This creates a leadership culture where good, or very good, is the bullseye by default.

What if excellence was the bullseye, by design?

What would it take for executives, staff, and the entire organization to spend most of their days doing excellent work?

The “what would it take” is precisely what my Disney-inspired corporate architecture solves for.

Thank goodness for time to decompress

Runner pain point
For posterity, yesterday’s debilitating pain point location.

 

Yesterday’s slow three mile jog to the High School to pick up my bicycle (from the night before) resulted in a flare up of the right calf pain from three days ago.

Was so frustrated in the moment, i was going to rearrange the whole day to accommodate storming into my Podiatrists office and demand answers – potentially firing him.

There is no justifiable reason for such a sharp pain to continue after i have repeatedly (over the years) shared my concerns and we have repeatedly run tests to find the cause. The end result is always, “Keep doing what you’re doing, everything looks fine.”

Yesterday’s pain (and Wednesday’s pain) was so severe i stopped jogging to walk the last half mile to school. The walking was painful too, like a major “charlie horse“.

Sharp pain simply in walking.

Come on.

There has to be a reason.
