Photo from yesterday. Post from 100 days ago…

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.

Nervous

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.

Is the best efficiency to create a busy enough schedule to insulate

Bosses are responsible for managing many things.

Including people.

People are complex. Each one different.

Time consuming?

Potentially.

Probably.

Is the best efficiency to create a busy enough schedule to insulate the leader from the really hard work of making their team feel like rock stars?

A pen and a piece of paper.

A handwritten note.

A sincere, heartfelt note of appreciation.

Gold.

Is the pen mightier than the sword?

Career sound bite yesterday

Much of life is spent waiting for someone else to go first

 

Career sound bite yesterday:

You go first.

One of the biggest, most overlooked opportunities in business?

Celebrating the success of others.

We know this, yet secretly want everyone else to pay us a compliment first.
