Focus on your stories

Steve Jobs quote
Every leader is telling a story about what he or she values, through their behaviors.

Focus on your stories.

Why?

It is the easiest and best way to communicate concepts and how they work.

Concepts and how they work is the essence of leadership.

Teaching a child how to become an adult.

Teaching an employee how to serve your customers.

Same difference.

Personal responsibility, joy, contribution, and growth.

Note: Everyday preach the Gospel, if necessary, use words.

The secret ingredient is optimism

Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Yesterday, the Castle forecourt was uncrowded, sunny and bright, loud, and Magical.

The secret ingredient is optimism.

This hit me yesterday while spending four hours, unexpectedly, at Magic Kingdom. Optimism is our (Disney’s) super power, not Magic.

i misjudged Walt Disney World’s closing by one day, and am so glad for the error.

Seriously, thinking about a Disney-less world, it was almost like heartbreak.

Our world needs Disney.

Our world needs optimism.

The Photo Pass wow-factor

Photopass upload screen
While Disneyland Photo Pass waits to download, you get this.

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore. 

Repetition is the mother of all learning. 

Never get bored with the basics.

You were born to work hard

Notes from yesterday. The left list are words to describe a speaker style. The right list is: would you take one million dollars now or a penny that doubled everyday for 30 days.

You were born to work hard.

Not just physically, but emotionally, creatively, purposefully, and joyfully.

As if it were child’s play.
