What’s a BFO?

What’s a BFO?  It’s a Blinding Flash of the Obvious.

Recently, I was in the middle of a lively discussion on the things that keep employees from getting actively involved with finding solutions to improve Employee morale, Customer satisfaction and Financial results.

One person said, “Language barriers.  I may speak with an accent, but I don’t think with an accent”.

I loved hearing that.

Why?

Because it taught me something.  Something I already knew, but subconsciously forget.

I thanked that person later.

Walt Disney used to say, “I never know where our next great idea is going to come from”.

I was gently reminded of exactly what Walt meant, and how that applies leaders in his organization.

Teaching often seems so one sided.  It’s not.  I’m living proof.

Does Your Vision Do This?

Does your vision – personal, professional, or both – send a shiver down your spine when you think or talk about it?

What if it did?

What would it take?

As a professional speaker, a wise person once told me, “Jeff, if you look out at your audience, and they look bored, you’re boring them”.

To me, this means if I’m  bored with my thinking, and not motivated, excited or inspired enough, it’s my responsibility to take action.

There are many ways to figure this out.  It happened to me and I’m applying my best efforts to, as Gandhi said, “You must become the change you wish to see in the world”.

What about you?

Thank goodness it’s Monday.  Bring it on.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff 🙂

Want to know a big Disney secret?

Think you know Disney’s best kept secret? Guess again. I think it’s Disney Institute.

They deliver keynotes, workshops, team-builders, and tours, to their Guests around the world.

Almost daily, people are amazed and even mesmerized by Disney’s ability to maintain a spotless, 40-square mile property.  Disney’s super secret way to keep everything spotless?   “When they see a piece of trash…….they pick it up!” Wow, right?

Actually, we all know trash has to be picked up – that it doesn’t jump in the trash can by itself. What everyone really wants to know is how do they get their 60,000 Cast Members to want to pick it up? Now that is magic!
