Please do not feel guilty for this luxury

Pikachu
On my desk the night i returned from Glacier.

Please do not feel guilty for this luxury.

What.

Loving what you do for a living that it no longer feels like work.

If Disney Ran Your Life is broad and deep

story board
As of February 12, 2019 this storyboard is the plan. This goes live April 12. We’ll see if we stayed true or detoured.

If Disney Ran Your Life is broad and deep.

This Podcast is one of the most fun, unpredictable, and rewarding experiences ever. Professionally, it ranks with starting a business in 2009, initiating the writing of 5 daily, differently-themed blogs (also in 2009), and retiring from Disney on Halloween in 2014. 

It does not rank as high as becoming a Disney professional speaker at Disney Institute in 1999. 

Why?

Podcasting is not a life-changer. But becoming a public speaker was. Until 1999, never knew i was born to teach.

A Disney Keynote Speaker career-defining moment

Disney Keynote Speakers
Joy. Can you please help me with my joy? i’d like it overflowing, please. Photo: random and unintentional yesterday.

 

A Disney Keynote Speaker career-defining moment is when you are intuitive enough to notice (and act on) what no one else is noticing (and acting on).

Climb the ladder.

How can you not?

Well…

If you pause long enough to keenly observe the obvious, you’ll notice something that is either invisible or, visible and ignored.

People in the levels above you – look closely.

Watch them over the months and years.

Are they filled with joy at what they do for a living?

Look at the Disney Leaders at every level above you.

Are they joyful?

This is not a dig.

This is an incredible insight.

An insight into a massive, world-class organization.

Not intending to ruin any Magic for anyone.

Chapin, be careful. There is literally no organization in the world that is immune from this….

What i realized was that there is no amount of (extra) money that would be worth more than the (abundant) joy i get from being a Disney Keynote Speaker.

Disney Keynote Spakers
Disney Keynote Speakers aren’t the focus on most conference speaker searches.

 

Be professionally amazed and amazing today.

How do you scale career excellence for an entire lifetime?

How do you scale career excellence for an entire lifetime?

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

Live as if every day is a new day (because it is).

Live in deep gratitude every moment of every new day.

Live as if you and the people you work with have a mission to make our world a better place.

If you can’t find people or an organization to make the world a better place, start your own organization – be an army of one if you have to.

Do work that is challenging and often difficult, yet simultaneously rarely feels like work.

See money as the reward, not the goal.
