My route ended at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort.


He thinks it’s easy, based on the way i explain it. So i need to find a better way to explain it.


Because it is anything but easy.

Simple, yes.

Easy? Not in a million years.

But the opportunities are dramatically better with hard work and perseverance.

Among the few sounds bites to re-explain it, i reminded him it took seven years before i made my first dime.





On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Think Big. Start Small.

As an adult, have you given any consideration to the things you want young people to remember? What if you did simple and easy habits or rituals that would leave an indelible impression on children?

Habits that help teach and shape their young lives and become memories they never forget.

Why? Because this is how we turn the world around.

How? Keep it simple, but profound.

And because your habits and rituals are ridiculously simple to do, and so easy to do, that the only excuse for not doing them is not caring. And how could you not care?

Please consider passing on this concept of care to the next generation. It may be the only hope our planet has.

And it starts with you.
