Even 11 years ago, the seeds of world-class were looking for fertile soil.

All work systems go for year 12.

No really

No, this time i mean it!

Three cubs are rare. Three determined efforts to transform is rare too.

No, this time i really mean it!

jn

What?

Quit drinking.

Oh, and writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts for 100 consecutive days.

Both succeeded only after two failed attempts at, ” No, this time i really mean it!”

They say third time’s a charm.

True that.

Too tired to finish

Cast parking at DAK.

Too tired to finish?

Almost asleep at the keyboard as today got away from me.

If it weren’t for the fact that i’m four days from completing 11 consecutive years writing five daily, differently-themed blog posts, it would be so easy to say, “It’s not worth it. Today’s posts can wait until tomorrow.”

Never said it. Perhaps never will.

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.
