Initiative

Last summer was an experiment in working together inside Glacier National Park. This summer will be a continuation highlighted by lessons learned and the opportunities discovered.

You used initiative to come and tell me where you were on the video project rather than having me come to you and ask you for an update.

Condensing a 21-minute video into 59 seconds or less is no easy task, especially knowing the goal is for it to “sizzle”.

Initiative is fairly rare, hence valuable.

In business.

In personal life.

Please remember your small victory (an extra inch), for life is transformed by the innumerable small victories (extra inches) achieved throughout life.

If Disney Ran Your Life

Beginner – expert spectrum

Gary is an expert. You are an expert. Everyone is an expert in their own personal opinion.

You know who gives you what you’re lacking in personal confidence?

You.

Great news. Maybe not what you expected, but still great news.

This means that you can go at your own pace.

This means that you can set your own goals and work hard, at your pace, to achieve them.

Seems logical to believe that motivation is also an inside job.

It is worth discerning that everyone can benefit from mentors, coaches, and continuous education. These initiatives, of course, are also an inside job.

There is beauty and power in hearing this from an expert. With 60 years experience, and a drive with few rivals, consider where you put someone like me on the beginner-expert spectrum.

What Are You Waiting For?

Initiative is gold

jeff noel Disney Speaker
A moment in time, capturing a marketing video location – Wild Goose Island on St Mary Lake. i’ve been sitting on a bunch of marketing videos. Why? Fear?

Initiative is gold.

Initiative is rare.

Initiative is one of life’s best teachers.

Initiative is scary.

So is regret.

Stop waiting.

Go.

Just go.

Final 120 Days

You know what you did yesterday?

Two Dog Flats restaurant
We joked about returning to Glacier to have lunch here again. How cool was it to actually do it?

You know what you did yesterday?

You took another step forward in pursuit of “feeling” how mind, body, spirit, work, and home is interconnected.

Can you picture it?

And can you “feel” it?

PS. Thank you for initiating the second after school personal trainer workout.

Could a person write six books in six months?

Disney story boarding example
Each of the six story boards will begin with “Prologue”.

 

As i prepare to begin a major writing initiative in 12 days (launching April Fools Day), i’m shopping for an excellent editor. Had lunch with my first choice yesterday.

i always say:

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.

Could a person write six books in six months?

And could each of these books go viral and become best sellers?

No, it’s impossible.

It’s kinda fun to do the impossible. – Walt Disney

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.
