People ask me if i get nervous before speaking

Disney Leadership Keynote Speakers
Less than a week ago i was nervous about hiking alone. Mostly because the trails aren’t crowded.

 

People ask me if i get nervous before speaking.

Yes.

But not about speaking.

i get nervous about making a difference.

Will what i profess be bright enough to shine on the darkest places in each individuals soul.

Will they be touched in a way they’ve never felt before?

Will they see in a way they’ve never seen before?

Will they think in a way they’ve never thought before?

And finally…

Will they hope in a way they’ve never hoped before?

Dear Son

What’s a great strategy but a poor tactic?

Disney Executive coach jeff noel
Possible corporate logo? It appeals to the karma of blueprints.

 

Left yesterday’s lunch disappointed.

Also left a little wiser.

My gut was right. She’s not mature enough, nor even remotely experienced enough to be a trusted and valued partner.

i had high hopes.

The naïveté in her responses, her demeanor, and her belief system – all of it, sadly, is not going to survive my expectations and the karma required.

Our age difference is two full decades. That, in and of itself, is irrelevant in my book. However, having always worked for herself since college, she has zero experience in a corporate setting.

All my clients are corporate.

All my content is architected to transform the way corporate leaders, corporations, and entire industries think.

When leaders and teams .think .differently they increase their odds that they may create positive change.

Anyone i associate with who isn’t 110% committed to making our World a better place won’t work.

i had high hopes.

Hope is a great strategy but a poor tactic.

Dear hope

Disney Leadership author jeff noel
Yesterday, a Sunday, at Disney Springs. Nothing fancy. The Disney trash can made it easy to not be a trip hazard.

The glamor of being a Disney author and speaker.

 

Dear hope,

While hope is a great strategy in business, it is a poor tactic.

Strategy is a decent plan.

Tactics make the plan a reality.

Hope is not a tangible tool, like a building, committed staff, or proprietary intellectual property.

If Disney Ran Your Life

From theory to Magic

Florida insect shedding
Noticed this today.

 

Florida insect shedding
Closer inspection revealed only a shell. Can you imagine how challenging shedding that must be?

 

From theory to Magic.

Provide hope where it’s elusive.

Impossible seems so real.

Until someone guides you past it.

Am I The Only One?

Why was faith, hope, and love our go-to when we were younger?

Allentown's Morning Call newspaper
Yesterday morning, Monday, July 18.

 

i have no idea how to act when the only visible things that seems to be working decently are your lungs and your mind.

Would i be able to remain a pillar of faith, hope, and love when everything around me is crumbling?

At 57, i am incredibly inexperienced compared to 90.

i told him that.

All i can think about is that faith, hope, and love are the very things we need when the end is near.

Having spent many days and nights living in the Senior Housing Facility and visiting the adjoining 24-hour Nursing Home, i’m seriously confused by what i observe and have observed for many years.

And i wonder if Faith, Hope, and Love – our everything when we are younger – turn out to be fair-weather companions as we age.
