Seinfeld’s Boat

Ah, man it’s good to be back…I think. I had a few setbacks on my way back, but I guess that’s par for the course when just about everything goes your way for a full two weeks.

 

NE hoo, lemme tell you bout this boat and the passenger on it…Mr. Seinfeld! Jerry Seinfeld was docked in a boat next to me. We were in contact with his crew and we even invited to a party that he was attending. It was an awesome vacation, I tell ya, but there is one thing that I learned from him that I’ll never forget…

 

They officially cancelled the festival, so we were all essential on a relatively remote island with nothing. Luckily, I and a few other festival goers were fortunate enough to have boats instead of being stuck with whatever the festival provided so we had the opportunity to instead explore the island.

 

We met Seinfeld’s crew when we were out trying to figure out the new game plan and we were discussing places to go. We had heard about pig beach and our captain was from there, so we decided to go north. Jerry and his crew said they would follow us, but in the morning he instead audibled and went south citing that there’d be too many people up north. Bad move…

 

You see, the waters heading down that way were pretty bad. So bad in fact that his boat ran ashore and cost him about 5 million in damages. (sheesh!!) Had he followed his instincts to join us, that wouldn’t have happened.

 

I can think of a ton of times when I doubted myself and came to the wrong conclusion. It hasn’t costed me $5 mill, but I’ve learned enough to know that going with your gut is something that can at least lead you to a swim with pigs on the beach.

P.S. Seinfeld’s comedy is great, but don’t trust him to sail your boat 😉

Talk soon…

Refuge Recovery

Man I tell you, I’ve never been on a vacation like this. It’s like some kinda lucid dream or something. Everything that me and my crew want to happen is literally HAPPENING. Well minus the cancellation of Fyre Festival

But I’ll tell you this, there is something huge that got us there. First though, I’d like to tell you a little story about Southwest Airlines.

Back in the 70’s they had a bit of a capital problem. They were faced with either letting go of one their flight schedules or one of their planes.

They ended up letting go one of their schedules and it worked out for them perfectly. Southwest ended up improving their service because they learned how to speed up their service to accommodate the increased capacity.

So what is this really all about?

When you know what you want to do, external circumstances have minimal effect on the outcome. It’s not a matter of work ethic, because people can work their fingers to the bone, but if they don’t have a sense of why they are doing something, they will undoubtedly eventually miss the point.

In respect to our vacation, the point was originally to see a festival, but why we were going down was because we wanted to have fun. So no matter how we did it, we would be happy.

So what’s in it for you? Why do you do what you do? Why do you go to work everyday?

Is it to make money?

Or is there more to what you do?

There is so much you can do to actually be fulfilled in everything you do, and I would encourage you to find it and make it a part of your daily habits.

Be more by finding your true reason for wanting to be more…
