Retina scaring

Left is today. Right is one month ago. Worrisome is the retina “scarring” in the left photo.

You can’t plan for every adversity. But you can clear life’s runway for all types of landings.

Remove non-essential habits, things, beliefs, people.

Here’s why.

You then make more room (perhaps all the room) for essential habits, things, beliefs, people.

i cannot imagine missing a single day blogging.

Writing and publishing five daily, differently-themed blog posts since 2009 has made me wise, peaceful, optimistic, and grounded in my prioritized priorities.

i was all those things before 2009.

However, prolific writing for 5,500+ consecutive days transformed me.

Transformation is subjective, but universally, it means radical change.

21-second video: Perspective on where we’ve come from. And before this house, we were on a $7,500 lot and a $39,000 starter house. True story. Felt like we hit the lottery. Both making minimum Disney wage. One car and one bicycle. Thirty-miles one way to work.

Autopilot can be transformational and glorious.

Habits drive results.

We judge ourselves on our intentions. Others judge us on our behaviors.

A client sent the video. Didn’t mention that yesterday. This video reminded them of me.

Today, reflecting, it stimulates thinking about the message from an organizational vibrancy angle instead of the obvious personal vibrancy.

Think about that for a moment.

Imagine intentional things an organization could (and should) do, but doesn’t. Much like the lone human being depicted in two scenarios: intentional and unintentional.

People, and entire organizations, reap what they sow.

The damning habit they both have is thinking today won’t make a remarkable difference to their futures.

Or conversely, the remarkable habit that every company has available: over-focusing on the same things other companies under-focus on or ignore.

Reaping what you sow seems irrefutable. There are rare exceptions. Plan on not being one.

Writing this fifth and final blog for today, October 5, 2023.

Tomorrow our Son starts his day at Celebration Health Hospital’s infusion center.

Mine starts at Central Florida Retina Specialists.

The next day we dine at our family-favorite Disney restaurant. And we are joined by our Son’s three best friends in the world.

Happy present moment.

Be an example not a warning.

How long have i been saying that?
