The Photo Pass wow-factor

Photopass upload screen
While Disneyland Photo Pass waits to download, you get this.

Over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore. 

Repetition is the mother of all learning. 

Never get bored with the basics.

Hei Moana, share some Magic.

Ok.

These photos do just that.

Did you see what i did with the title?

Used a word from each of today’s previous three post titles.

Magic does happen.

If you over-focus on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Dream? Of course. Why? It gives us hope.

The Show must go on.

One of our (Disney) key world-class organizational principles is separating backstage from onstage.

If people knew how relentlessly hard we must work all day, day after day, people would not believe it.

It’s cool to be a business advisor who can help outsiders bring world-class Disney business principles to their own organizational culture.

Bob Iger stepped down yesterday

Jody Maberry at Pixar Pier
Jody can now say he’s been to Pixar Pier. His announcement and Bob Iger’s stepping down announcement was yesterday’s big news.

Bob Iger stepped down, effective immediately, yesterday February 25, 2020.

Stock closed at $128.

Covid19 is threatening the world.

When you live long enough, you know a stock’s rapid rise is not sustainable short term. Stocks are long-term investments.

This is a hard lesson to embrace because few of us can see long-term horizons.

Going the distance, so to speak, requires stamina.
