it's overrated

It’s a long way to the top

This ain’t Broadway, but it’s a step in the right direction. The road from here is crowded, and way too long.

They say it’s lonely at the top.

They say you have to be someone special to make it to the top.

What they don’t say is you have to believe what you say.

Why do you want to be on Broadway? Is it worth the grind? Are you raising the bar so high because that’s what everyone who’s anyone says you have to do?

Disney Brand Loyalty Book

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Thomas Edison quote
Waiting for the hotel elevator at 6:15am yesterday.

 

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Disney is like that.

Never.

Satisfied.

Spend a lifetime working at a place like that and it changes you.

Big time.

Why? How?

Because progress is never made by coasting.

You learn that something is only impossible until the first person does it.

Walt said a couple things that allow a relentlessly focused culture of excellence to thrive…

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

And…

While we should always take our work seriously, we should never take ourselves too seriously.

Dear Son

Your career is about making as much money as you can

Disney Institute speakers
From a Google search last night using “Disney Institute”.

 

Your career is about making as much money as you can.

Until it’s not.

And trust me, it’s not.

A You Tube clip featuring an interview with my former Disney Institute colleague Scott Milligan. Scott’s life ended tragically.
