Disney Brand Loyalty Book

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Thomas Edison quote
Waiting for the hotel elevator at 6:15am yesterday.

 

Ever work for an organization that’s never satisfied?

Disney is like that.

Never.

Satisfied.

Spend a lifetime working at a place like that and it changes you.

Big time.

Why? How?

Because progress is never made by coasting.

You learn that something is only impossible until the first person does it.

Walt said a couple things that allow a relentlessly focused culture of excellence to thrive…

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.

And…

While we should always take our work seriously, we should never take ourselves too seriously.

The art of creating often seems Magical

 

‘Shape of You’: Making 2017’s Biggest Track

Turn up your volume one last time for 2017 — here’s how Ed Sheeran made "Shape of You."

Posted by The New York Times on Wednesday, December 20, 2017

 

The art of creating superior products and services often seems Magical from the outside.

The reality is it’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic.

Even someone like Ed Sheeran knows this.

Ed wrote the song for someone else – to “give away” as he says.

Apparently, in 90 minutes, he created one of his biggest singles.

Let this karma of imperfect truth inspire you to go somewhere today you’ve never been – a place you dream of all the time but don’t think is possible.

What if it doesn’t work?

Then what?

If Disney Ran Your Life

Magic is chaotic to produce

Last night on ABC television the Disneyland Diamond Jubilee Special.

 

i’ve been saying this since i first became a Disney Institute Speaker and Business Advisor in 1999:

“At Disney, it’s chaos 24/7.”

The Magic is that we hide what it takes so you believe it’s actually Magic.

It comes down to this:

Disney’s success centers on over-focusing on the same things others under-focus on or ignore. Disney is intentional where others are unintentional.

Too tired to work?

Too tired to work?

Nope.

Work is only work if you’d rather be doing something else.

Actually worked harder than normal in Memphis.

Thought it was possible to run to Arkansas, but it is not.
