No really

The truth is hard until it isn’t

It’s 6am and after writing this email reply (below) for someone on the other side of our planet, it dawned on me that there is organic wisdom in here that is applicable outside of our (Amanda and me) conversation…

Here’s the email…

Thanks for your notes Amanda.

Yeah, we should do a WhatsApp call next week. Or Zoom. Or FaceTime.

Couple quick thoughts about how i’ve personally attacked the issues: The best resource, i believe, is observation – and avoiding comparison at all costs. Watch what people and companies do, never listen to what they say. Words are crafted by marketing, actions are crafted by culture.

Words are crafted by marketing. Actions are crafted by culture.

If you are willing to listen to If Disney Ran Your Life from the beginning, you will see how everything builds and how habits are the key. Especially habits in what we think and dream and do. Life is always happening…to you or for you…doesn’t matter…life is always happening…this is never gonna change…what and how you react now, and plan ahead for, are foundational for life – are you familiar with the story about Three Little Pigs?

The truth is hard until it isn’t.

Accept this reality, put structure and processes in place to become a great CEO of You, Inc, and soar with personal vibrancy.

Life is not a dress rehearsal. Live like you mean it.

Final 120 Days

Collaborated with our Son and a trusted colleague

Lee Cockerell highly recommends this book.

Collaborated with our Son and a trusted colleague to run a few thoughts by them before i sent an email or made a phone call to the event owner in yesterday stories over the past week.

The colleague referred to a book (photo above) Lee Cockerell highly recommends.

While i will likely never read it, there was solace provided by my colleague in his recommendation.

Basically, do not compromise on your video and audio recording are strictly prohibited.

Son, this is why working at Disney takes special people to constantly give much more than any industry standard for resolving Customer, Employee, or Vendor tensions. Not all people are able to do this generously, for a lifetime. Some are challenged to do it for a single day.

Could This Change Your Life?

How we falsely judge ourselves

Disney Podcast jeff noel
The partnership with Jody Maberry involves the transferability of using .think .differently in everything we do.

Picture a 17-year Disney Resort Operations Leadership veteran starting a new career as an official Keynote Speaker for Disney Institute.

Talk about a career change.

And the new speaker never carried a desire to become a public speaker.

Ever.

Pause and contemplate this…

We judge ourselves on our intentions, others judge us on our behaviors.

It was a personal mission to make the above statement my thesis for Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence. 

i learned, embraced, and taught this Disney Leadership business insight my entire Disney Institute career from 1999 – 2014.

Note: When i began teaching the four-day open-enrollment classes at Walt Disney World in 1999, i began asking questions i thought everyone should have a ready answer to, but no one did.

Astonished, yet optimistic, i forged my own hypothesis based on 15+ years in Disney front-line and front-line leadership roles.

It was the catalyst for my life mantra:

.think .differently
