The creative business ideas to put a bigger dent in our Universe

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Never gets old. In 1982, i looked out the window in the highest room, in the tallest tower. It was dark. And Magical.

 

The creative business ideas to put a bigger dent in our Universe have to be generated or you don’t have them.

Duh, right?

Idea generation comes from thinking.

Thinking comes from time during your day.

Your day is filled with stuff.

By intentionally carving out structure and processes that you control, you systematically create daily space for creativity to flourish.

In my former life, i would have immediately dismissed the notion of writing seven Disney Business books simultaneously.

Imagine publishing a series of business books based on spending your life learning, doing, and teaching the world-famous Disney culture secrets.

Can you imagine?

Would you rise to the occasion?

Would you announce it at the journey’s start?

Or would you wait until it’s fully completed?

In reality, you’d probably do both and then for good measure, you’d do a third option – a hybrid of the first two.

Don’t make it too hard for your employees

Talented, hard-working crew removed dead palm and then an acre of chain link fence in the backyard.

 

Insight from 30 years inside Disney…

Don’t make it too hard for your employees.

The easier you make expected employee behaviors, the more likely they are to become organizational habit.

Am I The Only One?

17 years of weekends and counting

This bead jar has been in front of me every day since August 2000. A remarkable payoff for a $10 investment and one hour of my time to drive to the craft store for a jar and a bag of beads.

 

Be careful that you are doing the wrong things well and with great velocity.

You may spend your entire life never knowing.

How wasteful would that be?

Your attitude about your boss and coworkers is predictable

Florida alligator in retention pond
Almost invisible, the 10-foot gator is even less perceptible when swimming. Train your eye and heart to see things you normally wouldn’t. If you’re not a Tom Brady fan what’s your honest answer for why? PS. Football is not even remotely important to me, but i respect long-term excellence.

 

Your attitude about your boss and coworkers is predictable, in my opinion.

Three days from now, the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles compete in Super Bowl 52.

If you plan to watch the Super Bowl hoping the Patriots and Tom Brady lose, your mindset is poisoned.

Rather than see a dominant team (or player) do something extraordinary, you are instead sending a message to yourself that greatness is bad, especially when it happens to others and not you.

This poisons your work ethic and severely limits your ability to excel at work.

No really

Where is your shop?

Glacier National Park
Ever dream of being a National Park Ranger? Where? Did you want to retire from it?

 

Where is your shop?

Shop is metaphorical for work.

Every generation experiences a major disruption during their career.

Some form of technological advancement changes the way work (and life) gets done.

The current digital age isn’t disruptive to the generation growing up with it.

It’s disruptive to everyone else who’s become comfortable (and complacent) with the status quo.

Note to self – there is never a time when we can coast and expect to not get left behind.

At work.

At home.
