Unofficial preceded official

Podcast officially launched January 25, 2020. Podcast unofficially launched same day in 2019.

Unofficial If Disney Ran Your Life podcast release January 25, 2019 proceeded official Podcast launch exactly one year later – nearly three weeks ago.

What’s cool is that Jody trusted me to proceed with the mantra, “This might not work”.

Yo, Mr. Delusional

Top frame. Red dot.
This: I’m not delusional. I’m an entrepreneur. True that.

Yo, Mr. Delusional.

Yeah?

How’s your business going?

If you’re a business owner, you know the answer.

If you’ve never owned your own business, you’ll never understand.

You can’t. It’s impossible to understand what you haven’t experienced.

This is neither good nor bad. It’s just a train of thought as i look at the GapingVoid art piece four feet from the keyboard i’m typing on for this post.

Please go recognize someone else

2019 Disney Cast Service Awards night at Disney’s Magic Kingdom Theme Park.

If you are not willing to be wrong you’ll never come up with anything original.

By wrong, don’t think of stupid errors like not adequately recognizing your direct reports, boss, peers, and vendors for their strengths.

By wrong, think in terms of business risks that free you to try things that may not work.

Like walking away from your biggest business deal ever, if you feel the business is blind to their biggest organizational vibrancy opportunity.

Do you understand your Next + ?

You can not afford to slip in a place like this. Worrying about slipping kept me away for decades. Not anymore. Photo: Mt Reynolds.

Do you understand your Next + ?

So your Next is your big, multi-year goal/vision. It’s as big a goal or vision as you can ever dream up.

Super-hero big.

My first Next, at age 50, was a 10-year vision to do everything in life i wanted to do if i only lived to my 60th birthday.

Now, at 60, there’s a new Next.

It’s a three-year Next, taking me to my 63rd birthday.

The + is a wild card, diamond in the rough kind of karma.

It’s an accentuated risk taking commitment.

It’s a burn the ships commitment.

It is helping me process a potentially lucrative contract against the work-focus that will be required.

With only 2.5 years left in this Next, a lucrative deal has to be something that happens in the next few days and something that signals to me that the CEO is burning the ships.

The potential to transform a company and the industry they service is intoxicating.

But, and this is a huge but (no pun intended), 99% CEO commitment won’t work.

There is no way to lose

i come from a long line of dreamers and doers.

There is no way to fail if your attitude is focused on positive learning and development.

No matter what happens today, it will be a victory.

Taking risks is risky. So is playing it safe.

Only preach what you practice.

.think .differently

Sweet.
