3 Announcements yesterday

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Ty did all the arranging himself, with no input from me.

3 Announcements yesterday

  • Gary V LinkedIn videos inspired my video challenge (did you ever see the first video ever posted to YouTube?)
  • Yesterday morning i completed an epic 10-year (3,652 consecutive day) writing challenge (and start year 11 today)
  • Quietly mentioning on video a new podcast, If Disney Ran Your Life, which has 11 episodes available on iTunes and Stitcher (Cast Preview Days…practice episodes to be sure)

Will short (60-seconds or less) videos become a thing? Time will tell. Writing was never supposed to become a thing either.

Insane is as insane does

Disney loyalty speakers
Branded photo? Of course. When you Google “World record for most blog posts by a single author”, you will hopefully see this photo.

Insane is as insane does.

Not sure if there’s any point in starting an 11th year of daily prolific blog writing.

Two mornings from now, that will be one of two options. The other option is to stop writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts.

What’s the point of continuing?

The cumulative effort from a decade of five-a-day blogging (minimum) has resulted in having written over 2,000 more blog posts than the current posted world record for the number of blog posts written by a single (professional) author.

The posted Guinness world record is 17, 212 posts.

If formulaic approaches work, why isn’t everyone successful?

absence of human diversity
Only two (woman in center and the balloon) look like they don’t fit the hiring and promotion mold. Habits and rituals in hiring and promoting also lead to habits and rituals for a tolerance of risk-taking and pushing boundaries. Photo: yesterday on social media.

If formulaic approaches work, why isn’t everyone successful?

There’s a decent chance by the time this goes live on January 21, 2019, i will have launched my Podcast, If Disney Ran Your Life.

Along with the Podcast will be the highly suggested option to join an email distribution list.

i have avoided this formulaic process like the plague.

Why?

Because it’s formulaic.

So please know, the goal for Jody Maberry and me is to create a hybrid formula.

Writing advice 101

Disney Leadership Speaker
Case in point, Peter Drucker, thank you.

The goal of the sentence you’re reading is to get you to want to read the next sentence.

 

On a recent call with an aspiring future Disney Cast Member – who lives in New England – i was disenchanted by the sheer size and quantity of her cover-letter paragraphs.

i didn’t want to read her cover letter (i promised i would) because it looked so typical.

And boring.

Mind-numbing, really.

A week later, i finally mustered the patience and energy to tackle it.

Ugh.

My summary…

“I’ve loved Disney since I was a child.”

“My first trip to Disney, etc, etc.”

“I truly admire the Disney way.”

“I’ve always wanted to work for Disney.”

Typical.

Predictable.

Plain vanilla.

She took the feedback well yesterday.

Perfect.

Excite, inspire, and motivate, Disney style

Disney Institute Speakers
Yesterday on Twitter.

 

Disney Institute Speakers
Big convention here at Walt Disney World.

 

Disney Institute Speakers
My buddy Ernesto, from Disney Institute.

 

Excite, inspire, and motivate, Disney style.

It’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic.

Common sense.

Not common.
