Stop putting pressure on yourself to do too much too soon

Gloria Steinem quote about truth
Truth, it hurts and it liberates.

 

Stop putting pressure on yourself to do too much too soon.

Sure, you promised junglejeff.com goes live tomorrow, July 4th. And this is the third deadline you have created: June 8 your birthday, and June 25 your anniversary have come and gone. Now, July 4th.

Why?

Because you didn’t feel it represented your best foot forward. It is, after all, a Disney Keynote Speaker website.

We all struggle with feeling confident enough to launch without perfection.

If Disney Ran Your Life

At Disney we call these “Cast Member Previews”

Disney speaker jeff noel new website
Prelude. Yesterday was my first look at my new Disney Speaker website (first draft).

 

At Disney we call these “Cast Member Previews”.

That’s when things are almost ready for the public, but not quite.

After Cast Preview Days, next is what we call soft-opening. This is unannounced admission into the new venue. It’s not scheduled or advertised to the public. Only the Cast know about it. The Guests are surprised and delighted to be able to “test” the experience.

It is often a highlight of their stay because they never saw it coming. Not many Guests get to participate in soft-opening.

Deep breath…may i (unofficially) present to you…

Disney Keynote Speaker jeff noel
Look over there…it’s, it’s…it’s a new website..

 

Deep breath…may i (unofficially) present to you…

junglejeff.com

Spoiler alert because you may have never realized, this site you’re reading now is junglejeff.net 

Using GoDaddy’s handy domain name backorder feature (for many years) the previous owner abandoned it in early 2016.

Was quite shocked to purchase it.

Yee-haw!

Having a dot.com is a better piece of digital real estate than any other.

Location, location, location.

Domain extension, domain extension, domain extension.

PS. Today’s (June 9) reveal (rough draft form) is known only to a handful of people. However, by the the time this posts it will be polished up: .simple .corporate .different

Perhaps the biggest test of our self-discipline

Disney speaker tag lines
Post it notes rock.

 

Disney speaker tag lines
When post it notes aren’t available (away from office), i use iPhone Notes app, then copy and paste.

 

Perhaps the biggest test of our self-discipline…

The first draft of the new Disney Speaker website is due June 8 (my 57th birthday), which is five days away.

For the past two weeks, i’ve peeked (it’s live, but no one knows the url) but a couple days ago i made a personal commitment to wait until “Christmas morning” to look under the tree.

Exciting. Childish excitement really.

So tempting to peek.

Disney World Road sign
Yesterday (Jan 10) near the beginning of a 7+ mile run through Disney World.

 

Seth Godin asks a great question that is exciting to contemplate.

What are you going to do when it’s your turn?

Turn to do what?

Exactly.
