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

Could This Change Your Life?

These secrets have no way of ever being discovered

Band speaker and microphone
Downtown Disney at Disneyland. Our life becomes amplified with decisive action.

 

Where would i be if i had not written the first sentence in 2009?

Although it took 30 years to write the first sentence, it only took two more years to finish my first book.

And once it was finished, it took two more years to get the guts to publish it.

All told, a 34-year project.

Where would i be if i had not begun?

Publishing a book is a big deal until you do your first one, then you understand some secrets about life that you would have never discovered.

These secrets have no way of ever being discovered if we wait and do nothing.

Being Brave

When we wait for somebody else to change nothing changes.

creative lab values
I am Disney‘ is a mantra some can say with conviction and from experience (Ideas only Disney can do)

 

Nothing will change until:

  • leadership approves
  • HR approves
  • finance approves

Sound familiar?

When we wait for somebody else to change nothing changes.

Find an ethical way to do remarkable, amazing things at work that require zero approval, even if they are so small no one on your team notices.

Why?

Because your customers will notice, and they deserve remarkable and shouldn’t have to wait for it.

The exception is when you are a start-up and you are building and haven’t yet officially opened your doors.

And if you are the owner of the startup, as you build, be focused on blowing the roof off traditional expectations.
