Taking everything i learned, did, and taught from a lifetime at Disney, i deconstructed it and then reconstructed it. Making it profoundly simple and simply profound.

Why?

Because simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Simplicity also facilitates efficiency and effectiveness.

The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.

Do Not Pass Go

It might not work

Disney Customer Service Guru? Or simply an ordinary fella?

Most need a prescription for their challenges. This is a societal flaw. A trap, a prison. Self-help gurus find you easy prey. Always needing someone else’s way starves you from thinking for yourself.

Dear Son

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.
