Two Minute Drill: Death Vs Life

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today I’m coming to you from San Antonio, Texas. I was here this weekend for a conference. This week’s TMD topic of conversation is “death”.

Appreciate What You Have

Two experiences this weekend, the first one is a good friend of mine lost his nephew, a 25-year-old kid who died in his sleep. Not had some health issues, but 25-year-old boy, gone forever from the planet.

Then, I was scrolling through my social media feed and I saw a gentleman hugging his elderly mom and what looked to be a hospital bed. It was probably her final moments. Those things hit me hard and got me thinking about how fast life is going and how precious life is.

I know we hear it all the time, and we say it all the time, but are we really paying attention? Are we really internalizing the fact that our time is so limited and our time is so precious here that we’re actually making the most of the time that we have on Earth?

First, I’m going to ask everyone who’s reading this to really appreciate the things that they have in life. The second thing I’m going to ask you to do is to think about what’s really important to you and what matters in your life. The third thing I’m going to ask you to do is to go after it and go after it hard. If it’s really important, it’s worth it. Go through the trials and tribulations, go through the challenge, and go hard. Ultimately at the end of the day, you can at least say that you went for it.

So, death and life. That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. You guys have a great week.

Be safe and appreciate what you have. Talk to you all soon.

Two Minute Drill: Unforgiving Beauty

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today I come to you from Land’s End in Homer, Alaska. This place is both beautiful and also unforgiving. It made me think a little bit about how that’s kind of a metaphor for life. Life can be beautiful but life can also be a bit unforgiving. When dealing with life’s challenges, how do we also not let go of what’s beautiful around us? that’s what I have been thinking about this week.

Unforgiving beauty

I’ll give you guys an update on Hana. Thank God she had clean margins around the excision of her tumor. Last week, however; we did find out that she has the most aggressive form of cancer and therefore she is now getting chemotherapy.

How do I make sure that this unforgiving circumstance that came into our lives doesn’t adversely affect my ability to see beauty? I’m not talking about just the beauty here but I’m talking about all the beauty around me in my life the people that I work with, my friends, my family, my loved ones, and my other puppy deputy. Just remembering that I’ve got a lot of beauty around me.

How do I not just stick these feelings into a tiny little box? These feelings of despair, hopelessness, frustration, and curiosity, why is this even happening? Stick it in a tiny little box and just move on. However, my goal, and what I want to share with you guys today is I’m going to work hard on exploring these feelings.

I’m going to meditate, pray, journal, and all the combinations of the above to make sure that I figure out exactly how I’m feeling about this situation so that I can manage these emotions effectively and productively so that I can work and take action to support Hana’s recovery and just stay positive.

Going there with my feelings and appreciating the other elements of beauty around me in my life when unforgiving moments happen is this week’s Two Minute Drill message.

I hope you guys have a great week and I’ll talk to you all next week.
