Know and understand in Disney-speak

Yesterday in LinkedIn.

Know and understand in Disney-speak.

Demographics and psychographics.

This is the Disney Way we use to explain going “above and beyond”.

It’s how the Disney Compass came into being as a way to visually explain to outsiders how we think.

Son, lean on needs, wants, stereotypes (+ and -), and emotions (+ and -). You know this inside and out. Use the compass to be a more compassionate, productive, loving, and efficient person.

A better Disney Compass?

In the Disney Compass of Needs, Wants, Stereotypes, and Emotions, i discovered a new name for Wants.

Continuously striving to improve (thanks to Walt Disney’s DNA), i’ve always wanted a better way to concisely explain the difference between a need and a want.

Eureka, 24 hours ago as i wrote yesterday’s posts before driving to Little Rock Airport, the replacement word finally arrived.

Here’s Why I’m Right

The title here will ruffle some feathers and simultaneously, get others to cheer.  Why?  Because, as the 1960’s psychedelic rock band The Doors summed up in one of their songs, “People are strange.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.  You get the point.

So how does working seven days a week lend itself to balance?

First, the big picture intent is to NOT work seven days a week.  When the early pioneering Americans had a vison to become farmers, they spent countless hours clearing the land.  We can’t even comprehend the hardships they endured.

Every time I fly and look out the window, I imagine America, long before it was tamed – covered with trees and forests for as far as the eye can see.

What I’m doing now, working seven days a week is this:

  • Working to become a world-class professional speaker
  • Establishing processes to teach our son “life’s big four”
  • Preparing a metaphorical “hurricane disaster plan”
  • Preparing for the responsibility that comes with aging parents
  • Figuring out how to become a speaker, author, mentor of choice
  • Working to hear, “Well done”

The reason some succeed over others, is that successful people outwork the others.  This shouldn’t surprise anyone.  It’s a basic survival of the fittest, of the smartest, of the most creative, etc.

So, in summary, I’m clearing a hostile land, cutting down trees, digging up roots, making piles to burn, removing boulders, caring for sick animals, hunting for food, building shelter from the seasonally harsh climate, dealing with the emotional loss of my home state or mother country, protecting my family from wild animals and unknown diseases.

So really, if you don’t come from a lineage of hand-me-down success or riches, you have got to out work the competition.

Don’t beleive me?  Try and do it any other way.
