Determined to notice alone

Glacier National Park in September
GNP. Hiking partners, whom i had never met – i just kept them within eyesight. The trail was deserted. The bears are super-active eating machines in September, preparing for hibernation. PS. The horizontal line is not the trail, that’s Sun Road. The trail is well above the road.

Luck favors the determined.

He walked 20 miles to get to work (80 sec video)

 

He walked 20 miles to get to work.

Because his car broke down.

He was part of a moving company crew and it would be his first day on the job.

He had some choices.

He chose to show up on time.

His only option to do that was to start walking at midnight.

This story aired last night at the end of ABC Evening News with David Muir.

Twenty miles.

In the dark.

A blessing and a curse

Jim Ryun quote
Habits make us or break us.

 

A blessing and a curse.

Determination.

It can rub others the wrong way.

It can inspire others by illuminating how it works.

You’re free to pick.

Determination is a habit.

Lack of determination is also a habit.

It wouldn’t seem so magical if people saw backstage

Disney University lobby
Yesterday, a Sunday, my closest Disney writing location.

 

It wouldn’t seem so magical if people saw backstage.

Disney hides all the behind the scenes stuff so Guests only see the end result from painstaking attention to detail, including a chaotic environment fueled by all the things that make life challenging.

Disney isn’t immune to any of it.

Neither am i.

Find a million ways to eliminate excuses.

Dear Son

Life without a clear, concise, compelling goal

Shot putter's dirty t-shirt
Why is one side dirty while the other isn’t? Because he was practicing the Shot Put.

 

Every teen (even us back in the day) has the opportunity to discover small seeds of possibility within themselves…

He didn’t want to miss Track & Field practice yesterday, a Saturday.

It was only his third practice with the team that has been practicing for two months already.

This is a first on so many levels.

  • He’s never done sports
  • Never expressed interest in sports
  • Never felt confident enough to consider sports

He (independently) coordinated and followed up (and followed through) with Coach Williams.

And i have this vision that in the future he will recall this experience and it will give him what he needs to overcome fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
