What Are You Waiting For?

Next deadline (draft)

Disney Institute trainers
My final Super Bowl engagement was Super Bowl 48 in New York/New Jersey. This is part of our team rehearsing (and having some fun).
michelangelo quote
On an office door. .think .differently
quitting
Do want you want to do with your life. It’s your life. Balance is a moving target. You can quit or you can lean into discomfort.

We need starts and we need finishes.

One announces where we are going and why.

The other announces when we have arrived.

My next revolves around key themes:

  • Having fun
  • .thinking .differently
  • Leaning into discomfort

Go.

You have until January 1, 2021.

Two years is enough time, but only if you are focused and committed.

What Are You Waiting For?

Initiative is gold

jeff noel Disney Speaker
A moment in time, capturing a marketing video location – Wild Goose Island on St Mary Lake. i’ve been sitting on a bunch of marketing videos. Why? Fear?

Initiative is gold.

Initiative is rare.

Initiative is one of life’s best teachers.

Initiative is scary.

So is regret.

Stop waiting.

Go.

Just go.

Baby steps don’t work?

Mickey’s had the ride of a lifetime too.
Steve Jobs welcoming Bob Iger to the stage at Steve’s Apple Keynote, announcing the Pixar sale to Disney.
Bob’s masterful acquisitions.

Bob Iger said, “In today’s world, baby steps don’t work”.

This ABC interview with Bob Iger is worth the five minutes.

Professing, “The long way is the short cut”, i believe baby steps are what lead you to bold steps.

It’s the old adage, there’s no such thing as an overnight success.

Final 120 Days

Two pods in a pea

Jody Maberry and jeff noel at Disney
We moved side by side so we could see the same notes.

Two pods in a pea.

Of course it’s backwards.

There’s no obligation on me to say it the way everyone knows it.

A variation of freedoms that is fun to experience.

Son, i’ve earned the privilege to write what i want, when i want, and in the style i want.

How and why?

By writing every day for over a decade. By not having social share buttons nor an email subscription option – my writing is under no obligation to meet any expectation.

Son, freedom takes many forms. “Writing freedom” is a favorite.

Do Not Pass Go

Change isn’t hard at first

Verizon monthly plans
What would happen if i tried Verizon?

Change isn’t hard at first, specifically in our youth. Why? Because children are so experimental, so untethered with conformity, so excited about possibility.

Children dream wide open.

No filters.

There’s next to nothing to lose.

And then something happens.

We grow up and learn about fear, risk-taking, and status quo.
