A half-hour has been blocked at 3:30pm today to gather for jungle jeff’s ‘Disney years of service’ award. Thirty years at Disney used to be rare back in the day. Most of the people receiving that milestone were hired as part of the opening team in 1971 or hired shortly thereafter.
You felt privileged to be in attendance at their special recognition.
Nowadays, 30 years isn’t such a big deal.
Unless it’s you.
Then it’s pretty surreal.
While 30 years at Disney isn’t rare, 30 years with a single organization in 2014 is.
The nervous part?
Hard to explain.

Repetition of keywords is a leadership proposition if you want Google page rank. Google page rank is needed if you want to reach your audience – say, 1.2 million male Baby Boomers. If your dream is small (and that’s okay) or you don’t want or need page rank, this seems superfluous.
At the end of the day, trying to help make the world a little nicer by posting five blogs a day for nearly three straight years is a gracious offer – by anyone’s standards.
