What Are You Waiting For?

Initiative is gold

jeff noel Disney Speaker
A moment in time, capturing a marketing video location – Wild Goose Island on St Mary Lake. i’ve been sitting on a bunch of marketing videos. Why? Fear?

Initiative is gold.

Initiative is rare.

Initiative is one of life’s best teachers.

Initiative is scary.

So is regret.

Stop waiting.

Go.

Just go.

Final 120 Days

If you are afraid to fail, you’ve failed

Minutes ago this came in from Cristina.

If you’re afraid to fail, you can’t be creative.

For the first time ever i created a Twitter hashtag as a repository for a Disney Keynote speech…#jeffnoelMadrid

Will it benefit the attendees after the speech?

We shall see.

Son, spending 82 days out of 115 Summer days in Glacier National Park this year may be a mistake (failure).

We shall see.

Do Not Pass Go

Change isn’t hard at first

Verizon monthly plans
What would happen if i tried Verizon?

Change isn’t hard at first, specifically in our youth. Why? Because children are so experimental, so untethered with conformity, so excited about possibility.

Children dream wide open.

No filters.

There’s next to nothing to lose.

And then something happens.

We grow up and learn about fear, risk-taking, and status quo.

It's Not Over Rated

Thank goodness for risks and failures

Disney's Wilderness Lodge light pole
Can you tell where this Walt Disney World location is just from the light pole design?

Thank goodness for risks and failures.

What?

Thank goodness for risks and failures.

Without them…

We would never learn to walk.

We’d never improve.

We’d never come alive.

We’d never know fear.

We’d never know joy.

And we’d never know freedom.

No really

Better late than never

Disney Springs
i remember when Disney Springs was vacant land, next to Disney Village Marketplace (DVM). My wife started as a Merchandise Hostess at DVM.

Better late than never.

You know why i always worked for a big company?

Because it’s all i knew.

It’s what literally all my friends did or still do.

And i believe that the experience gained was indispensable, i also believe i could have been more entrepreneurial working in a big organization.

Except for one thing holding me people back.

Fear.

Fear of getting fired.

Fear from taking risks that others were also afraid of taking.

At this point in my life, the thought of not being my own boss is nauseating.
