Emotion Trumps Everything

The power of sincere feedback

College dining hall
Turned around last night to grab a photo of where we just finished eating dinner.
encouraging text message
This encouraging text message about my new Podcast arrived while we had dinner in Baltimore last night.

The power of sincere feedback. And i quote:

“Your joy is so pervasive in your delivery.”

A positive blind spot.

Didn’t know.

Why?

No one told me before.

It’s a hope that listeners feel it. Yet without validation, all you can do is wonder.

If Disney Ran Your Life

Confidence and the impossible

questions
Yesterday’s client call revolved around these questions.

 

Some call it the most important sports moment of the 20th century.

The hour-long documentary about the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey team is here.

i watched it but don’t expect (nor recommend) anyone else watch it. It’s a bit like one of yesterday’s posts called out:

When random chaos meets an open willingness.

Bank on being the expert.

Make a difference.

It’s what we all aspire to do.

Who recommends their stiffest competition?

Did i mention that one of the “management consulting” firms was  a recommendation? My other recommendation was Disney Institute.

They have not contacted Disney Institute because they already understand their pricing.

This makes me smile. Who recommends their stiffest competition?

Probably no one.

.think .differently

Professionally Speaking

It comes with the territory

Best Disney Conference Speakers
Doing a little extra is a habit. Most won’t notice it, but do it anyway.

 

The Vancouver client is taking a long time to confirm me as their speaker. This means one of two things:

  1. They aren’t sure how to nicely tell me no.
  2. They are simply crazy busy and the speech is over a month away.

One day, you feel on top of the world. The next, not so much.

It comes with the territory.
