To the future

Disney Podcast jeff noel
While the blogs are 10 years old, the “If Disney Ran Your Life” Podcast is only 10 weeks old.

To the future.

Keep moving forward…opening new doors. – Walt

It’s easy to make decisions when you know what your values are. – Roy

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough. – jeff

Profit was the goal for Roy. For Walt, profit was the reward.

Walt and Roy were a great duo.

Operationally, profit as the reward is the only scalable, sustainable, long-term way to engage the hearts of the people doing the hard work. With an engaged heart, you’ve got a committed (versus a strictly compliant) team member.

Seth Godin’s post word-for-word (it’s that good)

Disney Keynote Speaker
Photo is from a test conducted yesterday with external laptop charger, for upcoming Glacier trip #4, to see how long it takes to get to 100%.

 

Someone will appreciate (and be grateful they read) this, and that’s why i’m copying my fav biz author Seth Godin’s August 1, 2018 post word-for-word:

The motor

Here’s a simple hierarchy:

The self-driving car

Cruise control

Manual driving

Hitchhiking

Bicycling

Walking

The arc? As you move down the list, it gets harder and harder to coast. It moves from “set it once and forget it” to “one step at at time.”

The growth of audiobooks is outpacing reading. Why? Because audiobooks come with their own motor. Even readers are pointing out that they’ve forgotten how to read. But of course, that’s not true–we can still read a word, or even a sentence, it’s pushing ourselves through a chapter that’s difficult.

The internet is the greatest self-teaching resource ever developed. But few take advantage of it, because it doesn’t come with a motor. No tests, no certificates, no cruise control.

The decline of our personal momentum might be the great untold story of our time. That electronic media, incoming, ‘breaking’, please reply, didn’t you see that, react right now, click here… this has a cost. And the cost is our internal drive to initiate instead of to just react.

Someone’s driving. It’s either you, going where you choose, or someone else, pushing you.

 

Ok, back to my words…

You are the CEO of You, Inc.

You deserve all the credit and all the blame.

Credit is like eating an apple.

Blame is like eating an entire bag of greasy potato chips at 11pm.

The CEO is in charge of everything.

Staggering run of reading

Disney autograph book
Donna Flanagin, i need your autograph the next time i see you.

 

Perhaps the only thing that staggers my mind about writing for nine consecutive years without missing a day is the notion that someone other than me has (literally) read every post.

Thank you Donna Flanagin.

What is this blog about?

Orlando Based Motivational Speaker
Money

 

Orlando Based Motivational Speaker
Lower right corner.

 

This blog is about money.

Money is what humans get in exchange for their contribution to society.

More is not necessarily better. And be careful what you wish for.

It’s about our career ambitions and courage.

It’s about art, being remarkable, and excelling at the thing that we do that makes the world better.

Life is not a dress rehearsal

Orlando based motivational speaker jeff noel on Sanibel beach

 

Just last night, a dinner conversation in Canada inspired today’s post.

Only one person in charge of our life.

The world’s worst boss.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

Live like you mean it.
