It’s been a while, but Coolness is back and what a place we find ourselves in.
I’ve been watching the Disney series The Imagineering Story, sharing the story of WED, the team founded by Walt Disney to oversee the production of Disneyland. He once said:
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” -Walt Disney
I’ve been ramping up my activity, listened more and created content. A few to note if you missed them:
I have more to share over the coming weeks, including a renewed Remote Sprint community, a book club and more opportunities to Ask Me Anything.
Talking of me, how am I doing? I’m doing ok thanks. I’ve had good days and bad days. I’ve been able to spend time with my family, take up running and focus on helping as many people as possible through this time. On the flip side, I haven’t been riding my bicycle much (which I love to do), I’ve found focus quite hard (alas, no home office), and my impatience has sky rocketed.
However, with the addition of a studio-sized coffee machine (thanks to my wife Steph - check out her new book by the way!
), some cost savings and setting up new routines, I feel this has been a formative time. I’ve made some discoveries and I’ve built up my self-discipline.
I hope you are doing as well as you can right now. If you want to say hi, do reply to this email - it would be great to check-in on each other.
Thank you for supporting this issue,
