So What?

i wish i would have started a year ago

Mt Clements Glacier
Mt Clements, July 24, 2014.

 

If we do not change the way we teach, 30 years from now we will be in trouble. —Jack Ma, CEO

 

My advice is to start with yourself. This has a ripple effect of your kids (or the young people in your life if you don’t have kids).

My other piece of advice is twofold: do something different within 72 hours and become more positive, healthier, more grounded, remarkably better at work, and more organized at home – that you don’t say, “I wish I would have started a year ago.”

Nature is like leadership: beautiful and brutal

Nature is like leadership: beautiful and brutal.

Many wonderful things are visible when great leadership (or stunning Nature) is present.

What’s brutal is the harsh reality of survival.

Glacier reminds its visitors that there is a food chain and death is a natural and necessary part of the beauty.

Leadership reminds us that some companies thrive for decades and others suffer a quick, or lingering, demise.

Disney is not interested in these people

Disney Institute Speaker
Enthusiasm is contagious.

 

Disney is not interested in people who sort of care.

It’s okay to not care deeply (commitment) about your job.

Just know if you want to work for Disney, you will find your greatest joy when you figure out how to scale your commitment for a decades-long career.

There is never a time when you get to coast at Disney.

i’m climbing literally and figuratively.

Climbing at Glacier.

Climbing with over 900 pages in seven books.

Surrender to imperfection

Disney Keynote Speaker
The focus (out of my control) creates an energy and a karma that using an iPhone allows to happen organically.

 

The iPhone has an automatic focus.

No turning a lens to control what’s in, or out of, focus.

You can influence focus, but not guarantee it.

The iPhone’s “organic” and automatic focus creates an energy and a karma that requires the viewer to accept – and appreciate all photos as little or as much as the viewer would like.

The imperfection is the part i appreciate the most.

That, and the surrendering to imperfection (which flourishes).

Now, apply today’s insight to writing sentences and paragraphs for a series of books that encompass “The Disney Way”.

i love to write

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
Variety is the spice of life.

 

i love to write.

And take pictures.

And to sometimes write about the pictures i’ve taken.

Haven’t missed a day of writing in 9.5 years.

Not one.

The first two writing trips to Glacier required more effort than expected to gain momentum.

But here’s the thing, i plan on everything taking longer than expected.

Hoping, however, that none of the seven books exceed 130 pages.

The page count is the benchmark from my first book.
