Wearing a hat is a pseudo​​ alcohol buzz

Disney World High School Marching Band
Disney World High School Marching Band, the difference a hat can make on the way people look, and even more importantly, the way they act.

Wearing a hat is a pseudo alcohol buzz.

Don a hat and we immediately feel more courage, more confidence, more bravado.

Why?

Maybe because…

Hats are often worn as part of an accomplishment: a team, an affiliation, a milestone – a proposed statement of proof that effort and dues have been paid, and that the hat stands for something important.

And sometimes, simply earning the right to go on vacation and celebrate by wearing a hat can signal proof we’ve earned something.

Put on a Disney Goofy Hat and see what permissions you immediately feel – silliness, fun, unconventional, etc.

Change isn’t hard at first

Verizon monthly plans
What would happen if i tried Verizon?

Change isn’t hard at first, specifically in our youth. Why? Because children are so experimental, so untethered with conformity, so excited about possibility.

Children dream wide open.

No filters.

There’s next to nothing to lose.

And then something happens.

We grow up and learn about fear, risk-taking, and status quo.

We take a lot for granted at Disney

We take a lot for granted at Disney. Our attention to details astonishes outsiders. For us though, it’s no big deal.

To consider skimping on details isn’t in our DNA.

Obviously, this cultural habit has evolved, and continues to evolve, over the decades.

So yeah, a neat article about not having mirrors over the Theme Park bathroom sinks seems brilliant to outsiders, we’ve long ago moved past that innovation and on to the next impossible challenge desperately needing a simple, low-cost, scalable solution.

Your actions should not come as a surprise

Walt Disney picking up trash
People go nuts when they see a photo like this. Why? Not sure. What stops any of us from picking up trash all the time? Walt’s actions shouldn’t surprise us.

Your actions should not come as a surprise.

When a CEO “gets caught picking up trash”, a buzz is created.

Why?

Because she’s setting such a great example, right?

Here’s my point (again), why would this ever become newsworthy? Isn’t the CEO always picking up trash? In my world, this should never astonish and inspire people.

Why?

Because everyone should be picking up trash all the time.

Disney University and Jeff Noel University?

Disney University Seminars
Before Disney Institute was a place, our programs were held at and run by Disney University.

Disney University and Jeff Noel University?

Years ago Disney University (DU) hosted “Disney Institute (DI)” seminars. Had lunch at DU two days ago and told my lunch companion about this fact. It was so long ago that only a handful of people remember, and even fewer care.

However, the insight for me is how small and humbly DI was and what a force in the training and development world it is now.

So to think there could be a Jeff Noel University sounds crazy. Then again, maybe not.
