Rest story

Note to self when an idea struck yesterday. After a couple years at Disney Institute (was there 1999-2014), i realized i never again wanted to pursue a promotion.

We know rest is critical for our physical health.

The same concept is easily, and appropriately, transferred to work.

Covid-19 is causing many to be furloughed.

Unemployed – my former colleagues at Disney – are reaping the benefit of maintaining their healthcare benefits for a year.

The downtime, absent of healthcare coverage worries, will be an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rethink their trajectory and their career ambitions.

Magic happened when, convinced i had found the perfect level of work, there was no longer a desire to climb the proverbial ladder.

The catalyst?

Noticing that none, in my opinion, of the leaders in any level above me had remarkable joy in their life.

Slowest of the Fastest?

What does this metaphor, “The slowest of the Fastest” mean?

It means very simply this:

We have a choice every moment of every day.

To be positive, or, to not be positive.

Here’s one of life’s invisible truths:  Everybody is fighting a hard battle.  Everyone.  Even the people who appear, on the surface, to have a great (easy) life.

We all have a choice on how we live our lives.

There are two choices:

  1. To be the fastest of the slowest.
  2. To be the slowest of the fastest.

On our deathbed, if we are lucky (blessed) to have this moment, we can look back on our lives and say with a peaceful joy, “I gave it my best effort and have no regrets about what I could have, should have or would have done“.

Carpe diem, because if you don’t, who will.  If not today, when?  jeff 🙂
