A fascinating day.

We will be back inside Disneyland today.

It was good to have a dose of reality for a better appreciation of life in general.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Disney Legends and Starbucks meetups

Three former Disney Cast Members meeting near Disney
Not enough seating at Axom Coffee so we went next door (here). We know how the Magic works.


What do we believe as truth that couldn’t be farther from it?

For many of us who grew up in small towns, the big time city news from places like New York, Chicago, and Hollywood was fascinating. The glitz, the glamour.

Meeting in an hour with the best mentor anyone could have access to, Lee Cockerell.

In real life, it’s actually quite different than the media plays it up to be.

Do I practice what I preach?

Do I practice what I preach? Do you?

This is a follow-up post to yesterday’s interesting challenge about “mistakes” smart people make.

Funny thing is, I’m often tempted to judge myself based entirely on my intentions.

The fundamental change brought about by teaching – and they say to teach is to learn twice – is that I’m much more aware of my blind spots.

So, I rewrote my 463-word vision/mission statement, created in 1995 after reading Stephen Covey’s classic, “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”.

It went from 463 words to two words!

So easy even a caveman can remember it.

Make it a GREAT day, because if you don’t, who will. Carpe diem jungle jeff 🙂
