What you do

post it note notes
What do i do? i use common sense, paradox, and questions as the tools to enable leaders to .think .differently about everything.

What you do is who you become.

Culture isn’t until it is

Steamboat Willie title
Every Cast Member learns key Walt Disney Company milestones on their very first day with the Company during orientation. Few milestones are bigger than the first cartoon with synchronized sound. Walt used his own voice for Mickey, so we could save money. The new-hire orientation is purposefully called Disney Traditions.

Culture isn’t important, until it ‘suddenly’ is.

Never stop learning

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers Jeff Noel
Black and white. You either love Apple, or you don’t. Thank you Steve, you nutty human being who thought deeper, reached higher, worked harder, and cared more than the others. If you could see the iPhone 13 Pro Max, you’d smile and immediately think about what’s next.

Never stop learning.

Pastor Russ and i had a wonderful meeting yesterday.

From the beginning casual conversations a year ago with Russ, and separately with his boss, Pastor Chuck, have focused on being a business resource.

We are most successful when our neighbors are successful.

Spontaneously remembered a story to help frame up with Russ exactly what outlier he’s dealing with…

When our Son goes looking for the face of Jesus in the real world, he shouldn’t have to look any farther than across the dinner table.

Only preach what you practice

Such an easy concept. One things leads naturally to the next. Common sense as they say. Photo: From my Disney Institute career archives.

Only preach what you practice.

Wait, what?

Of course, this is the reverse of the historical phrase, “Only practice what you preach.”

Reversing it changes everything.

Only preach what you practice.

Can’t get enough at work

Disney University info board
Random iPhoto library grab. Yet it does speak to a 30-year Disney career that began, Day One, in this very spot.

Can’t get enough at work.

There is no bar too high for your work mindset.
