Could This Change Your Life?

How we falsely judge ourselves

Disney Podcast jeff noel
The partnership with Jody Maberry involves the transferability of using .think .differently in everything we do.

Picture a 17-year Disney Resort Operations Leadership veteran starting a new career as an official Keynote Speaker for Disney Institute.

Talk about a career change.

And the new speaker never carried a desire to become a public speaker.

Ever.

Pause and contemplate this…

We judge ourselves on our intentions, others judge us on our behaviors.

It was a personal mission to make the above statement my thesis for Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence. 

i learned, embraced, and taught this Disney Leadership business insight my entire Disney Institute career from 1999 – 2014.

Note: When i began teaching the four-day open-enrollment classes at Walt Disney World in 1999, i began asking questions i thought everyone should have a ready answer to, but no one did.

Astonished, yet optimistic, i forged my own hypothesis based on 15+ years in Disney front-line and front-line leadership roles.

It was the catalyst for my life mantra:

.think .differently

So What?

Been a vivid dreamer since birth

Disney speaker’s iPad
Already finding the keyboard to be a challenge. Practice was invented for situations like this.
Me:
.think .differently
What Seth is talking about is the path i find crowded. He and i (possibly you) don’t like crowded paths – in business nor in GNP.

Jody:

Me:

Ain’t it?

It also ain’t popular 
Like sayin’ ain’t isn’t popular
i hope i don’t create tension for u or ur biz with my .different .focus
It’s all i know.

Jody:
I don’t hear many people say “ain’t” anymore. Perhaps I ain’t hanging out with the right people. 
 
My 8th-grade teacher told me ain’t is not a word and I should not say it. Who says she gets to make the rules?

Email conversation ended there.

The Chronicles of Nuwanda

“Thought of you today” was the email “subject”

CEO emails me last night:

“I saw a documentary today called “won’t you be may neighbor “
It was awesome. I recommend it”

Margy Whitmer, the film’s producer, in the early description in the trailer, says…

“You take all the elements that make up good television and do the exact opposite, you have Mister Rodgers Neighborhood. Low production values, simple set, an unlikely star. Yet, it worked.”

Wow.

So i asked why…

He said:

I saw in the documentary you. I think you strive to make the world a better place in everything you do. Your not perfect but an inspiration

Upon reading his answer, it occured to me, “i did not know this.”

Professionally Speaking

Is the industry standard something you have to accept?

Speaking of failing to succeed…

Are you a purple cow?

No?

Then why should anyone pay attention to you?

The aspiring Disney animator jumped at the chance to speak with me (for free).

Our conversation was yesterday while walking to the gym.

One of the first things he shared was a story of him dragging his mom to the wall he had drawn on, “Look mommy, it says I am an animator.”

From that, later in our conversation, i suggested that maybe what makes him a purple cow is his ability to pretend and (possibly) to get others to pretend.

He was astonished and inspired.

What’s your purple cow?

.think .differently

New inspirational video at jungle jeff today

 

New inspirational video at jungle jeff today.

Personally, it’s so powerful, i’ve placed it in this blog’s sidebar, along with a few other important videos.

The Soviets hadn’t been beaten in 20 years, not even by the NHL’s All-Star team.

And then in 1980, a miracle…

What the coach had to do to accomplish this was treason from conventional thinking.

This type of .thinking .differently is oxygen for the right people.
