Worth noting

No divas, no heros, all teamwork for a common goal.

Worth noting these things that don’t fit on a simple one-page business contract:

  • 9-hour days include one-hour lunch and one-hour admin time
  • a scribe is welcome in every meeting, i take notes only for me
  • you will schedule rooms, times, people, scribe, flip charts, notepads, pens, and any other admin activities you see fit
  • creative and fun collaboration between your entire organization and me is crucial to progress
  • an expectations document needs to be drafted and approved on both sides, before work begins…this is my contribution to it,
  • new structure and processes for BTL 2.0 are required
  • communication expectations between you and me are perhaps key
  • bonus eligibility (paid January 2021) up to 100% of original contract fee

Solving for 4 key issues

Three-city trip coming soon. March 20 actually changes to March 19.

Solving for 4 key speaking issues:

  1. What subject is he famous for?
  2. What does he look like on stage?
  3. Isn’t he too expensive?
  4. Where is his book?

Here’s how:

  1. Customer Service (build off of TED Talk)
  2. TED is too long, insert 30-second sizzles
  3. 2020 is the year of exposure vs revenue
  4. Go the Extra Inch is first Disney business book to release

It was amazing

Magic happens when you live admirably. Just yesterday we (Disney) repeated as the 4th most admired company in the world according to Fortune.

It was amazing.

At least three times my client said that.

In roughly five minutes between other people coming in and out of the conversation as the session concluded.

Later a text:

The team keeps talking about the presentation and YOU!!

To which i text back:

Wait, what? i’m just a messenger. Walt’s genius deserves the credit for the architecture. PS. Thank you.

Disney Jesus

Disney Jesus? No. Not even close.
Disney Jesus? Which one? Neither. Nice try.
Are you sure? Those eyes look heavenly.
Surely not the Disney Jesus.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
Disney Jesus? Probably. i heard (s)he rides a bike.

Disney Jesus?

What?

Jesus roamed the earth with only the clothes on his back.

He possessed wisdom for all ages.

No books, no notes, no iPhone.

In a dream, i envision me being like a Disney Jesus – carrying nothing more than the clothes on my back and an iPhone.

Preaching the Gospel according to Walt.

And a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.

Disney’s secret

Disney’s secret is illustrated here.
Disney’s secret is illustrated here too.

Disney’s secret?

Can you keep a secret?

Promise?

Okay.

Disney’s secret is to over focus on the same things that others under focus on or ignore. We have learned to be intentional where others are unintentional.

Please don’t tell anyone.

It’s a secret.

Note: Top photo shows three, not one, not two, wet paint signs. Vacationing Guests are incredibly distracted by all the stimulus and don’t always notice helpful things. Second photo shows peanut butter being spread on both bread slices – when jelly is used (instead of bananas), peanut butter keeps bread from getting soggy.
