If Disney Ran Your Life

Bob Iger stepped down yesterday

Jody Maberry at Pixar Pier
Jody can now say he’s been to Pixar Pier. His announcement and Bob Iger’s stepping down announcement was yesterday’s big news.

Bob Iger stepped down, effective immediately, yesterday February 25, 2020.

Stock closed at $128.

Covid19 is threatening the world.

When you live long enough, you know a stock’s rapid rise is not sustainable short term. Stocks are long-term investments.

This is a hard lesson to embrace because few of us can see long-term horizons.

Going the distance, so to speak, requires stamina.

Work For Money?

jungle jeff, Daily reflections on Excellence, has an overarching theme.  Money.

As I teach our son about life’s four big quadrants, jungle jeff’s blog is focused on only one.  Money.

Money is not the root of all evil. It is the love of money that is the root.

Whatever you believe, I’m teaching our son that every human should contribute to society in some way.  In return, society pays you with money, generally speaking.

With money, you can buy food, shelter, insurance, transportation, and even use money to help others.

And one more thing I’m trying to teach him, “He is rich who owes nothing.” — Hungarian Proverb

Wait, There’s More

My friend, a true Disney fan, even went as far as suggesting, “You really need to be an expert before people will follow you”.

And I thought out loud, “Really”?

So this led to a decent discussion about:

  • How do you become an expert?  It certainly isn’t overnight
  • How do you develop a following?  It too, isn’t overnight.

I boldly, but with unseen humility, stated that I’m a wellness expert.   What makes me a  “wellness expert”?

Mind.  Body.  Spirit.  Money.

Expert?  Really now?

The ability to deliver great results.  That’s what makes you an expert.

When you can make common sense, common practice.

Bold?  Absolutely.

Boastful?  Depends on the strength of the person doing the “judging”.  A small mind will probably say, “Boastful”.  A humble mind, “Not boastful at all”.

It’s a test we’d all like to pass, but few have the courage to take.

Being fanatical about quality and practicing what’s preached, I take the test daily.

Carpe diem, jeff noel, honor student.  🙂
