A lifetime of deconstructing

Love the Toy Story 4 character. Love that i’ve deconstructed my life and continuously reconstruct it, as seen in this view from Mt. Reynolds (9,156′). This experience crushed the person i used to be with a severe fear of heights.

A lifetime of deconstructing Disney’s DNA so that i can reconstruct Disney’s DNA in brilliantly simple ways in order to be the best teacher.

To teach is to learn twice.

Teach what?

World-class, time-tested, massively-implemented Disney business insights.

My job is to remove the Pixie Dust and Magic from what outsiders think are secrets.

My second job is to reintroduce the world-class Disney basics to outsiders so that they clearly see it’s not a Disney proprietary insight, but simple common sense that uses focus and discipline to flourish.

Focus.

Discipline.

Focus on the basics.

Discipline yourself to never take your eye off of the basics.

You’re welcome.

Just use what’s around you

Florida inlet from airplane
Florida inlet from airplane two days ago. Unable to identify it.
Wisdom on a napkin
Faculty member joined us at lunch and shared wisdom so profound, it was necessary to capture it.
Wisdom on a napkin
Wait, there’s more.

Just use what’s around you.

You can type on a phone.

You can write on anything.

Always carry your phone and a pen.

A dining hall napkin may be your quickest way to scribe wisdom.

It was yesterday at lunch when a stranger imparted something profound in a way i hadn’t heard before. Instinctively reached in my pocket for the GNP pen.

You made it to 60, now what?

Family Christmas
Life is a blur. Enjoy that. Having Chapin along for 19 years has been icing on the cake. So insanely lucky.

You made it to 60, now what?

Live like you mean it.
Life is not a dress rehearsal.

Read a great book today. A masterpiece in your eyes. Yeah, read that one. Hopefully it’ll only take an hour.

The book is generous, gentle, direct, and compellingly hopeful.

Think deeper, smile more, feel grateful everyday.

Talking trash at an entirely ​new level

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.

Talking trash at an entirely new level.

Disney trash cans now have “self-notifying” sensors inside signaling when it’s full enough to be emptied.

The road to excellence has no finish line. Never be satisfied that you have “finally arrived”.
