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.

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.

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.

Innovation challenges
Everyone is creative is a core Disney belief. And you can organize to maximize your collective organizational thinking.

 

Microsoft is generally obsessed with how to beat Apple.

What if Microsoft was obsessed with helping teachers teach students better?

Apple is obsessed with helping teachers teach students better.

This video (particularly from 6:06 – 8:32) shares a decent example of the difference between a PC and a Mac.
