Lucky for us he got caught (and fired)

40 years since the interview. Visiting Sanibel since 1989.

Lucky for us he got caught (and fired).

Without that interview, we would have never met.

Without the vacancy created by his firing, and without me being on the alternate’s list (wasn’t good enough to make the first round selection), i wouldn’t have been positioned to be interviewed.

Ellie (unintentionally) caught him sneaking beer into the dorm. She could have given him a warning but there were other student witnesses.

Ellie was forced to terminate his coming year contract.

What are the odds?

Their work dreams are both

Three college-bound young men. Together at a Florida beach.

Their work dreams are both different and the same as mine.

Different in that they have much less desire to have a stable, lifetime career with a single organization.

The same because they too have the alluring goal to try to do work that matters – work that makes our world better.

It would be a privilege and an honor if they asked me for career advice.

Disney is everywhere

Toy Story 4 debuted the day before we arrived. We hope to see it at the Island Cinema (next to Bailey’s Store).
Cheryl noticed Mickey as our groceries were scanned. Never noticed it as i selected it in the produce section.

Disney is everywhere.

Disney is so pervasive that it can be right in front of you and you can’t see it.

Attention to detail in world-class service can be similar.

So much detail that you can’t recognize the superior attention to it.

You might only recognize something when the detail is missing.

Take cleanliness at a Disney Theme Park for example.

You expect it but you really don’t notice how remarkable it is.

You’d only start to notice if we weren’t keeping everything so clean.

Do you know your company’s values?

We are trading high-mountain snow banks for sea-level sand beaches.

My company’s six key priorities, in order:

  1. Honesty
  2. Behave admirably
  3. Personal responsibility
  4. Self-control
  5. Initiative
  6. Fun
  7. (Bonus) Contribution

The last one is most important, but everything has to start with honesty (the conduit for trust). Trust is the most important value.

Slowly digging out

West Orlando WordPress meetup is the third Thursday of every month. June’s meeting was last night.
West Orlando WordPress meetups are now at Scribble Space, not far from home. A dream come true.
This “Members-only” business card display reinforces the challenge with business cards – standing out in a noisy world.

Slowly digging out of the office administrative backlog created by nine days with limited internet access.

The Lodge wifi was so slow, that i had to blog using notes. This creates a time-consuming task of transferring everything from Notes to WordPress websites.

Transferring photos is the most laborious. A multi-day process.

Then there’s the speaking and busy Summer business-travel logistics.
