It's Not Over Rated

Slow down to speed up

Once in a lifetime sighting that lasted 30 minutes.

How is it possible to gain speed by slowing down?

You either know this concept first-hand or you don’t.

Even knowing it first-hand doesn’t guarantee you’ll embrace slowing down as a go-to tactic when faced with an unpredictable future.

The world is full of examples where rushing through life is a painful way to learn.

Read leadership books

Grinnell Glacier hike, looking down on Lower Grinnell Lake.

Read leadership books, but be careful in selecting which ones will get your attention.

Many leadership authors are interested in making a living and don’t have time to practice everything they preach.

How do i know?

i’ve been in the industry since 1999.

i know things only insiders know.

Son, you are fortunate to read these daily blogs.

Balance is not a myth.

True personal leadership is balancing mind, body, spirit, money, and hq.

Please think deeply about not exercising

Mark and i worked together at Disney’s Grand Floridian and Spa as well as Disney Institute, probably 20 years total.

Please think deeply about not exercising.

Totally agree with Mark.

Yes and, there are many leaders who do not exercise regularly, do not eat well-balanced nutrition, nor do they insist on adequate sleep.

If they are not trusting themselves to get and stay healthy, why would we trust them with stuff at work?

When experts talk, listen to the entire message. Cues and clues are everywhere.

Son, you have developed a keen sense of awareness in reading people. Trust your gut.

Sometimes your gut will be wrong. This is rare. Play the odds that your gut is your best defense and offense.

PS. Walt was an amazing visionary leader. He also died from lung cancer. Rumor is that the Disney point came from photoshopped photos of Walt’s cigarettes being removed, leaving behind two fingers as if in a point.

PSS. In the 1980’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort lobby Concierge Desk, i made change for a $20 bill for Roy E. Disney. In that brief encounter i saw how Roy’s fingers were permanently stained from smoking. His fingers…that’s a lot of smoking.

Professionally Speaking

Most rehearsed ​speech ever

Lake McDonald Lodge
Hoping to speak in Glacier National Park in the near future. Lake McDonald Lodge pictured above.

Most rehearsed speech since 1999? Tomorrow’s Leadership keynote.

Why?

Experimenting with doing more in less time. Same speaking client as last year, but with 60 minutes less time. To convey the same message with less will require a great level of precision.

Perhaps after speaking for 20 years, i’ve finally learned how to rehearse. It sure feels like it. And it feels good. Better late than never.
