Best time to worry physically

Sometimes you discover how cool your family thinks you are when you didn’t know it was a possibility. The smile in the upper left corner speaks the truth. Not to mention Hailey’s smile and Henry’s piling on his older cousin.

Remember the story about Lenn and Debbie in the Disney Institute break room talking about the Atkins diet they were on?

Chimed in and asked, “Why doesn’t anyone ask me what i do?”

Literally in unison, they said, “You don’t need to worry about it.”

To which i (hopefully gently) fired back, “i worry about it every day. That’s why it looks like i don’t need to worry about it.”

It’s the same way Disney Business Operations seem like “Magic” to outsiders. Outsiders believe Disney doesn’t have to work hard. When in fact, Disney works harder than anyone to run a great business. That’s why it looks like we (Disney) don’t have to work hard.

With everything that floods our schedule with unexpected worry and challenges to solve – and challenges to let go of – how would we maintain our sanity without regular exercise?

Life is hard. Everyone knows that.

When our four-year old Yellow Lab got sick this past summer and died 24 hours later, it was difficult (and still is) to tell whether it was denial or strength that prevailed afterwards.

Let’s go with strength.

And fast forward from July…

The doctor said he can’t say how much time is left.

If you’re reading this, don’t be sad or worried.

Of all the people that you know who realize that life is not a dress rehearsal and that the best way to approach life is to live like you mean it, none understand it more than the guy typing this.

Denial or strength?

We worry all our hard work will erode away

One of the most challenging things to do is slow down and take a break.

For like a week at a time.

We worry all our hard work will erode away.


Maybe not.

We will soon find out.
