Epiphany pedigree?

Epiphany pedigree?

When asked a question, the other person is telling me what’s important to them. i take this very seriously and have great skill in immediately sorting to the best answer from a lifetime at Disney.

When i’m asked to “share some Disney knowledge” i have no idea where to go with that.

Focus is key.

Invite me to be on your show, but only if you have important questions.

Speaking with Jody Maberry yesterday, this hit me. Thank you Jody.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Planting epiphany seeds

Parking at mountain cabin
Only one of 20 flew to reunion.


My keynote speaking and business advising company – featuring The Disney Way – is held up by four pillars:

  1. Simplicity
  2. Excellence
  3. Scalability
  4. Legacy

But it wasn’t until a minute ago that the pillars revealed themselves.

And it was last night’s dinner conversation that planted the seed for this morning’s epiphany.

Note: Two of my “brothers” are executives who have hired consultants. Their results are nothing they are ecstatic about.

The best epiphany of the WordPress Wordcamp Orlando 2013 session was a question

Striving for simplicity in everything. Everything.
Striving for simplicity in everything. Everything.


The best part of the first day at Wordcamp Orlando was the epiphany.

What do you use WordPress for?

I’m a writer.

What do you write about?

Right there in that moment…

The answer.

Have a clear, concise, and compelling answer.

In the walk to the parking lot the answer fell from the sky… second chances.

And excuses, regrets, hope, opportunity, permission

Excuses lead to regret.

Regret leads to hope.

Hope leads to opportunity.

And opportunity begs for permission.

Second chances, no?

The great Summer of 2012

So I started to stop talking about what I’m gonna do

we don’t get gold stars for dreams, only accomplishments

How often does your brain hurt from thinking too much? How often does this net you an epiphany (small or large)? Recently one hit me so hard, it took my breath away. I no longer talk about what I’m gonna do.

Why? Great question.

I finally had an epiphany the other night while swimming with our son.

You know what your problem is jeff?

No, what?

You ask questions that people don’t have answers too, but should.
