Greatest asset is mindset

Yearbook senior tribute page
Yesterday Yearbooks were distributed.

The greatest asset is mindset.

Why?

It frames up how you think.

How you think frames up your motivation.

Bottom line, motivation is your greatest asset, but you can’t get and stay motivated without the right mindset.

Son, of all the wisdom you’ve been exposed to, this ranks supreme.

Turn frustration into opportunity

Landscape home
In my mind, the landscaper has this one.
Home landscaping
Need to clarify whether he uses a ladder when necessary. And even if no, tell me so when i see an obvious and overlooked shrub, i don’t do it myself.

Turn frustration into opportunity.

Yes.

With no curtains on most of our windows, nature is glorious to look at all day long. Noticed an overburdened split-leaf philodendron that’s been climbing a palm tree for 15 years maybe. It wasn’t trimmed two weeks ago.

At high noon, in the heat of the day, grabbed a ladder and in the shade of the palms, delighted in being outside on a working break.

Being in the garden is an easy way to toss the world’s cares aside for awhile.

In college, get outside often. Even when you don’t feel like it. It’s great medicine.

The Walt Disney Legacy Award

The Walt Disney Legacy Award.

  • Dream.
  • Create.
  • Inspire.

Recipients of this Walt Disney Lifetime Achievement Award embody the three traits that Walt Disney himself embodied.

Recipients are selected without the selection team’s ever knowing the Cast Member’s name. The only criteria the selection team can use are the behaviors demonstrated through the specific examples written in the nomination forms by the nominating Cast Members.

Recipients are surprised by the official announcement and presentation and their Family members and other important people in the recipient’s life are secretly invited too.

Each Walt Disney Legacy Award recipient receives a large framed plaque featuring Walt Disney, a blue Disney name tag, and a special celebration dinner for two at the big banquet in their honor.

Received the Blue Disney name tag (photo above) in 2013.

Owners own everything

Glacier national Park
Hidden Lake Trail at Logan Pass. July 2018.

Owners own everything.

On Wednesday May 1, i proposed an introductory call. We had yet to speak and i figured the reason he hadn’t proposed a call was he is as busy as me, etc. So i initiated the phone meeting and we spoke Thursday, May 2.

It went great. Super excited to help him out; maybe a month ago, as a casual favor to a colleague, i offered to do it for free.

The call ended with him talking about the video recording of the speech. This completely caught me off guard. How does he not know i don’t allow video or audio recording? Period. He acknowledged he couldn’t find any. There’s no speaker footage of me anywhere, since 1999 when i began speaking.

In the moment, i made a judgement call to end our call graciously and to allow a good night’s sleep to see if it was time to lift the 20-year “lifetime” recording ban. Wanted to be open minded.

Embrace the simplicity of rigor

Snow at Logan Pass
The mashup of color is a gift to witness.

Embrace the simplicity of rigor.

You know how to do it.

You’ve been doing it all your life.

Cards, grades, gaming.

Apply it to physical wellness and have fun with it, even the parts that at times will not seem like fun.

Those times will pass.

You will be tempted to quit.

There is huge victory in failing to quit.
