Left, today’s photo. Right, two weeks ago. Dr Kumar used his handheld lens/light to physically look into my eye. He said there is (physically observable) definitive improvement.

Bad things happen when you least expect it. So it goes with good things too.

Positive begets positive.

Never forget that.

Bank on it, invest in it.

Oldest or youngest, at work

Handwritten notes on a post it note
December 1 (2023).

Be cautious when someone’s motive to help you is to reach a monthly financial goal. Conversely, enjoy when their financial motive is the reward, not the goal.

dad

Better to be the oldest person in the office or the youngest person in the nursing home?

Bonus: Bog Iger‘s November 2023 returning to work reflection (4:49 video) is here.

As a business advisor, my job, the one that only i can do, is to write organizational vibrancy prescriptions.

It’s up to the C-Suite to follow the prescribed course.

Teaching differently brings me joy

The bead jar officially emptied in 2018. This photo was from 2016 or 2017.

Teaching differently brings me joy.

Over-focus on the same things others, who do what you do, under-focus on.

Strive to have fun becoming a category of one.

Lessor versions (goals) include:

  • Being good enough for government work.
  • Being above average to make better money.
  • Being excellent to compete for promotions.
  • Becoming the best in class (category) for any number of reasons.

But at the end of the day, being the best in your category relegates you to taking your place behind the lead dog, the one who creates a new, and better category.

Improve at work, don’t preserve

Burn the ships.

dad

Improve yourself at work.

The goal is more than becoming a remarkable, artistic professional.

The goal is to do that, then continuously improve beyond your wildest imagination.
