Are you fascinated by the way people…

Inspiring vision for waste management
Our job as an employee is to continuously make what we do better than it used to be done. See the question in the white box?

 

Are you fascinated by the way people can easily see the faults of others yet appear to be blind to their own?

At some point in life, we should mature to a place where anything other than striving for excellence, continuously improving, and teaching others is a missed opportunity.

Agree or disagree?

Why?

She was waving to every Guest that walked by. i said something to her that made her laugh.

i turned around and she had stopped waving to provide VIP (Very Individual person) treatment.

 

Are you clear on your career goals and expectations?

Your career is your contribution to society.

Your contribution is directly tied to your spirit.

Your spirit is tied to your attitude.

And so on and so forth.

Do you know what my hope is for you in 11th grade?

Yesterday morning while you were attending the first day of 11th grade.

Evil step-sisters: one face is red with rage and the other green with envy. Why? Because the slipper fit.

 

Do you know what my hope is for you in 11th grade?

That you glean as much as you can from me and Mom about how Disney runs its business.

The link below takes you to a 16-second video clip i recorded yesterday featuring a mailbox and a business question.

How important is enjoying your work?

At Disney, we teach brand new Cast Members – on day one – the principle of “finding your own applause”.

There will be many things about the various jobs you’ll have throughout life that will be unpleasant and perhaps even downright annoying.

Find the get-to-do parts of your job and accentuate those.

That’s where your joy will come from.

Nurture it.

Grow it.

Harvest it.

i used to feel guilty because i…

Without the tug-cart pushing the Jet back, what would happen?

 

Over the years, i used to feel guilty because i thought my bosses should pay more attention to how great i was.

Then i realized my bosses were super busy.

i used to feel guilty because i couldn’t figure out how to get their attention – so i could feel like they really cared.

Then i realized every leader (even Disney’s leaders) is trying to keep their own head above water.

Survival.

Survival doesn’t harvest great leaders.

i used to get stressed wondering why i struggled with this so much – and why literally everyone else i knew struggled similarly.

Then i made a six-year plan (at 49) to retire from Disney at 55 and start my own enterprise.

My respect for small business owners exponentially increased.

My respect for survivors (the ones not willing to leave) has weakened. The good news is that this respect is a non-issue when you let it go and move on.
