The best time to look for a job

Disney Creativity and Innovation speakers
Maybe 120 seats.

Some venues hold thousands, others hold dozens.

A moment in time.

 

The best time to look for a job is when you already have a great job.  – @jeffnoelmidlife

 

Tweet that.

 

Doing things when there’s no apparent need and when there’s no deadline doesn’t provide the type of motivation that uncomfortable urgency provides. Experiment with creative ways to overcome this.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  – Benjamin Franklin

How about if you just sit and watch?

Waiting in line
One of many strategies used to slay the biggest Guest dissatisfier – waiting in line. Fast Pass makes you feel like a celebrity.

In 1985, while working at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Hotel (Disney’s Flagship in the mid-1980’s) front desk, i learned early on that my job was to make Celebrities feel like ordinary people and make ordinary people feel like celebrities.  – @jeffnoelmidlife

 

Walt Disney wanted to build a place where adults and children could have fun together. Before Disneyland, where adults could have fun, there wasn’t anything for children. And where kids could have fun, there wasn’t anything for adults to do (except sit on a bench and watch).

Disney simple, ok?

Disney Customer Service speakers
Love the occasional echo on these blogs. Where have we seen this quote before?

At Disney, simplicity is operational genius.  – @jeffnoelmidlife

 

Too good not to Tweet? Share it here.

 

i only preach what i practice. You’ll gain a much stronger reputation if you learn to do the same.

PS. Thirty years ago, this was my 15-minutes of fame, being in the Disney Look Book. Here’s a look at the 2017 version.

Everything in business life applies to personal life

Facilitation notes
Disney thrives on simplicity. Everything i learned, did, and taught has been applied to my personal life and my personal business.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.  – Walt Disney

 

Life is a series of highs and lows, good weather and stormy weather. Many days will be somewhere in between. Learn to embrace each day as a gift and you will “keep moving forward”.

Dad’s take on playing it safe

Personal leadership speakers
A new spin on the old Irish proverb. Fear keeps us from dancing, singing, asking, writing, and living like we mean it.

 

Taking risks is risky, so is playing it safe.  – @jeffnoelmidlife

 

What the heck, go ahead and Tweet it.

 

Fear is always going to be part of your life. Learn how to be a great partner.
