jeff noel, Can You Give Us An Example Of How You Applied This Leadership Behavior?

I can draw you a map – right side, middle – to Crohn’s disease…

How many examples would you like?

When I committed to raising money to donate to The Crohns & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA), it went something like this:

Figure out how to raise $1000, wait, no, how to raise $3,000, I mean $10,000, $100,000 to help find a cure. A few more seconds went by and I remember who I work for (a big-time dreamer), dude, you work for WDW… $1,000,000!

One-million dollars got written down as 1 of my 5 big bucket items. It stayed there for some time until the epiphany.

One million dollars? Really? That’s all? How about jeff noel helps raise money until the cure is found. Then stop.

You gettin’ this or do you need a map? And I mean that in the nicest (funny) way possible.

  1. But if you aim low, you will surely hit it without much effort or reward. 🙂

  2. But if you aim high, it will be harder…but the reward is so much sweeter! 🙂

  3. Bob, thanks for your insights. It seems, to me anyway, that the difference is having peace or regret, not failure.

    Because we can fail, yet know we gave our all.

  4. You are right! And at that point, the reward may not be extrensic rewards. But the reward is the satisfaction in knowing you tried and gained some internal growth from it.

  5. It’s like David and Goliath.
    I didn’t realize til this morning that Crohns is an auto-immune like MS — I KNOW the researchers are going to find the key that unlocks the mystery of auto-immune disorders. And is it just my perspective, or are auto-immune cases on the rise?

  6. Bob, it is an often forgotten goal – not to succeed as much as to give our very best. For even in failure, we can succeed. And conversely, we can succeed and still fail.

  7. Natalie, was just speaking with a hospital executive who reiterated what you said. The technology to find the precise gene that is a culprit, or the gene that can be used for good is not far away.

    Plus the ability to laser focus cures and treatments is going to blow us away.
