Will you stop excelling?

Lee Cockerell window
Second favorite window.

 

Walt Disney window
Favorite window.

 

Walt Disney window
Walter Elias Disney’s window faces Cinderella Castle and many Guests never see it.

 

Cast window
Third favorite window is “my” window. By the way, the hike was intended to rack up some mileage before next week’s hiking (and writing) trip to Glacier.

 

Main Street clock
My work was done by 8:10 AM.

 

Will you stop excelling?

You literally get paid the same whether you do extra work or not.

This is assuming you are paid by the hour. If you are salaried, or you own your own business, the story is quite different.

Being on your own, extra work doesn’t automatically equate to extra pay.

Why?

Because you may be working hard on the wrong things.

Do you have a vision of the future that portrays you as working for someone or working for yourself?

This is all new to me

WPS swim team 2017
Small team.

 

This is all new to me.

Before i knew it, the team was huddled up for a team photo (which i missed).

What’s captured above is the Coach pulling everyone together after the photo for a team chant.

Congrats on finishing third in the 50 freestyle, after what, four days of practice.

Were you surprised?

How big is too big?

Disney Cast Awards
DREAM stands for: Disney Resort Experiences Are Magic.

 

How big is too big?

Took this photo immediately following a coaching call yesterday. It was in my line of sight as i got up from the desk.

It resonated because of something the CEO said.

She said, “Compared to a year ago (just before our relationship began) my Cabinet is experiencing tremendous organizational vibrancy, my Leadership Council’s vibrancy is strong, and we are about to expose our Staff to the cultural architecture.”

She went on to add, “For me personally, I’ve experienced exponential learning. Jeff, you’ve given me the gift of thinking big.”

A Summer of Questions

How do you become the guy sitting in the back corner?

Disney keynote speaker
Preparing for a presentation from the pool, last night.

 

How do you become the guy sitting in the back corner reading a book?

Picture a room full of 300 people sitting impatiently for what is about to happen. By the way all 300 of them do what you do for a living.

Now imagine a buyer (potential client) up on the stage at the front of the ballroom.

The client says to the audience, who are sitting down at this point, “Who amongst you is the one person i should hire?”

Now what you observe is 300 desperate professionals all on their feet, jumping up and down, hand waving wildly and shouting, “Pick me, pick me, pick me!”

But you have remained seated, head down, quietly reading a book.

Who will intrigue the client, since she can see it all from her vantage point up on the stage?

Most organizational cultures are a mess

Disney Keynote Speaker
The evil step sister’s faces are not white, on purpose. When the glass slipper fit Cinderella, they both had an emotional reaction.

 

Most organizational cultures are a mess.

Why?

Because there’s no set of blueprints.

No foundation that’s set in stone.

This lack of foundation perpetuates an endless list of plans that are not tied to the big picture – the vision.

The best analogy i can share is comparing adult intentionality when it comes to personal wellness.

Can you make the comparison?
