Who do you point to?

Pointing to a trail. Deep in the middle of the wild.

What benchmark does your organization employ as the ideal company behavior model?

Who do you point new hires to? Who do you point everyone to?

And for those who consistently live out your company’s foundational DNA, how do use this to your advantage?

How do you create more “models of excellence”?

Employees embodying the spirit and behavior of your organization’s highest ideals should receive your company’s highest recognition.

This is for the leaders who were too busy to notice

This is for the leaders (including me) who were too busy to notice.

Knowing that my self-imposed deadline for death living is exactly three years from June 8, i will have to balance patience with a termination point.

No easy task.

Living with a deadline creates a profoundly deep sense of self-reflection.

This illuminates the perceived need for cathartic behaviors. Otherwise we are faced with the reality of living dying with regret.

There is no manual for the exact way to proceed.

(And because there is no guide, this is why society, in general, waits and does nothing with their big, bold, humble dreams.)

So i may say and do some things that with more time, might not feel necessary (like this post). But i don’t have the luxury of waiting to find out.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

A half-hour has been blocked at 3:30pm today to gather for jungle jeff’s ‘Disney years of service’ award. Thirty years at Disney used to be rare back in the day. Most of the people receiving that milestone were hired as part of the opening team in 1971 or hired shortly thereafter.

You felt privileged to be in attendance at their special recognition.

Nowadays, 30 years isn’t such a big deal.

Unless it’s you.

Then it’s pretty surreal.

While 30 years at Disney isn’t rare, 30 years with a single organization in 2014 is.

The nervous part?

Hard to explain.
