Baby steps don’t work?

Mickey’s had the ride of a lifetime too.
Steve Jobs welcoming Bob Iger to the stage at Steve’s Apple Keynote, announcing the Pixar sale to Disney.
Bob’s masterful acquisitions.

Bob Iger said, “In today’s world, baby steps don’t work”.

This ABC interview with Bob Iger is worth the five minutes.

Professing, “The long way is the short cut”, i believe baby steps are what lead you to bold steps.

It’s the old adage, there’s no such thing as an overnight success.

Bob Iger’s contract expires in one year

Daytona Beach Hard Rock Hotel
The World’s Most Famous Beach is it’s claim to fame.

 

 

 

The Disney culture, and maintaining it, is my number one priority.  – Michael Eisner (1984)

 

Bob Iger’s contract expires in one year – July 7, 2019.

Bob took over for Michael Eisner in 2005.

Michael ran Disney for 21 years, from 1984 – 2005.

i was there for all of it, and then some – finally retiring on Halloween (pretty scary) 2014.

In fact, Michael, my wife Cheryl, and i were all hired on the same day as permanent Cast Members.

Also, i spent eight months as a (full-time) seasonal Cast Member in 1982.

Bob has graciously extended his CEO contract several times since July 2015.

We have yet to identify the next Disney CEO.

Fingers crossed for some incredible Magic between now and July 7, 2019.

“This better work”, Bob Iger said three times to Tom Staggs as one of the Walt Disney Company’s most important modern day meetings concluded.

This better work.

The Fast Company article summarizes what i’ve been saying for years:

There probably hasn’t been a day in the past 10 years where we have not said, “We should have never done this.”
