The power of a milestone or anniversary is easily lost

Disney's Town Square
World class organizational culture is by design, not by default.


Disney, and other “intentional” corporate cultures, use milestones to operationalize their culture.

The power of a milestone or anniversary is easily lost.

The simplest way to understand it’s power is to comprehend what’s lost when you don’t celebrate a critical milestone.

For example…

Tomorrow, December 30, 2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the last day i drank alcohol.

This is transformational for the person who drank every day for 28 years.

And when this post goes live on March 29, there are two days left to complete the eighth consecutive year of “5-a-day blogging”.

And this is transformational if you were the one who never wrote more than two consecutive days in a row.
