What is the speed of excellence?

The challenge with speed, that is overlooked by harried CEOs, is the pace may seem appropriate, but the direction is off course.

Age-old conundrum: don’t mistake activity for productivity.

Take a career walk on your Disney side

Disney Institue Keynote Speakers
Used the Disney Institute umbrella to keep the sun off my head on yesterday’s walk to Magic Kingdom.

 

Finding joy and inspiration in talking to anyone, i never hesitate to ask questions.

Me: Who came up with the idea to create hidden Mickeys using mulch piles?

Her: I did.

Me: For real?

Me: What’s your name?

Her: Emily.

Me: Wow, This is so cool. i love what you’ve done.

We continued to talk a few more minutes and then we both moved on with our day.

How did you get to a work 10?

St Mary Lake
The trailhead was accessible by boat.

 

On a scale of 1-10 (10 is best) how do you rate yourself for achieving consistent work (exceeding expectations, thinking and doing differently, and better) excellence?

How did you get to a 10?

Do you spend every day at a 10?

What do you do to stay at a 10?

The road to excellence ends where?

Windermere 5k
The road to excellence has no finish line. Two days ago during 5k walk.

 

5k race bib
Always be driven to make the experience more hassle-free. Race packets used to contain a small ankle bracelet with the chip timer.

 

Running race chip technology
Continuous improvement benefits the customer and the company. No more chip bracelets.

 

The road to excellence has no finish line.

Would you prefer to go back to printing a boarding pass?

Or going to the library to do research?

You know the drill: lather, rinse, repeat

Glacier National Park
These views were imprinted on my heart in 1973, as a 14-year old.

 

A more consistently excellent work performance.

When?

If not today, when?

If not tomorrow, when?

If not ever, why?

You never hear people say, “I wish I would have waited longer to get started.”
