Being Brave

Fearless is not an absence of fear

A surprise opportunity. One of our favorite Disney movies.

Fearless is not an absence of fear.

Fearless is the instinctive recognition of fear and simultaneously taking action to neutralize any real or perceived threat.

Like anything that you are good at, this takes practice.

Embrace the work.

If Disney Ran Your Life

Upholding Disney’s attention to detail

Even the drum set matched Cinderella Castle’s Celebrate You messaging.

Upholding Disney’s attention to detail is our biggest challenge.

Why?

From the very beginning, paying attention to details most won’t notice is a hard sell – at an organization’s birth, growth, and maturity.

Why do it if 99% wont notice?

Coolest thing?

Three sentences up, change the words at an organization’s to in your personal life. (csn, txt me when you finish today’s posts. Ty.).

If you can convincingly answer this, you are in a unique class and world-class mindset.

The paradox of boredom

On a napkin, on a moment’s notice, for an audience of one, a 5th grader.

The paradox of boredom is simple.

You either pick never getting bored with the good and decent basics or you pick the opposite.

Find a million ways to stay motivated.

Final 120 Days

Keep your goals to yourself (short video)

Mickey Mouse Hat smiley face on dinner table cloth last night.

Keep your goals to yourself.

The 3-minute video shares a phenomenon that i have personally experienced in both publicly announcing goals and with keeping goals private.

It’s always a better outcome when i keep big goals private until they are accomplished.

Too much false sense of progress in announcing. Simply proclaiming a goal temps us to believe progress has been made.

Rubbish.

It's Not Over Rated

Brief moments of thinking brilliantly

DFW airport
DFW airport, two days ago. What an insane accolade. Congrats DFW.
DFW airport
DFW airport. Wow, Wow, 475 out of 500 top companies use Webex. Congrats Webex.
DFW airport
DFW airport. Deloitte is the largest “business services” firm in the world.

On a mentoring phone call, yesterday walking back from the gym, a moment of insight.

Similar to how Roy Disney saw profit as the goal and Walt saw profit as the reward, i told the mentee to use that contrast in his Disney Leadership application.

Guessing close to 100% of the applicants apply with a job as the goal. What if Tim applied with a job as the reward?

He liked it. i liked it.

That wordsmithing had never happened prior to yesterday, March 15, 2019.
