How often does your work feel like play?

When you click on the video you will get a message and a link to “watch it on You Tube” – click that. Take note of the video’s timeline…you may have to manually start the video at the beginning.

 

How often does your work feel like play?

If you can spare 48 minutes, you’ll treat yourself to inspiring business insights from a guy who in 1994 started an online bookselling business.

Now, 24 years later, he’s the richest man in the world.

This isn’t about getting rich, it’s about being creative to offer the world something it wants.

Have fun.

If you aren’t, ask yourself how much fun you are to work with.

Another screen shot, not a hyperlink embedded video.

 

This 43-minute video is packed with subtle business insight from comedian Brian Reagan.

He’s spent a lifetime honing his art.

Three tips i gleaned (without intending to):

  1. Decide what you stand for (he decided to be a “clean” comedian).
  2. Make as many mistakes as you can in order to perfect your art (he worked every night at a comedy club – for 2.5 years. Other wanna-be comedians didn’t invest a fraction of this effort.).
  3. Be aware about what stirs your soul and explore it (his college speech teacher laughed at his jokes – as he walked back to his dorm, he felt special in ways he never had before).

This clip i’ve hyper-linked for you (above) serendipitously came across my path on Father’s Day.

The genius of Walt Disney Imagineers (video)

 

The genius of Walt Disney Imagineers is humbly captured in this video.

So many insights.

So discreetly revealed in such an understated way, most will miss the gold.

Quick story: For Fantasia, Walt had theater owners install special effects devices in their (small town) theaters, like a second pair of speakers in the rear so the audience would have “surround sound”. He had them install misters in the ceiling so you could “feel” the movie at the right moments. Red carpet from Main Street (USA) across the sidewalk to their theater’s entrance. Pre-printed show Playbills and ushers in tuxedos so arriving patrons would feel like they were attending a Broadway premier.

The theater owners didn’t do any of it.

They couldn’t grasp the vision and didn’t have the time nor money to go to these extremes for a movie that was passing through.
