Dream? Of course. Why? It gives us hope.

The Show must go on.

One of our (Disney) key world-class organizational principles is separating backstage from onstage.

If people knew how relentlessly hard we must work all day, day after day, people would not believe it.

It’s cool to be a business advisor who can help outsiders bring world-class Disney business principles to their own organizational culture.

It's Not Over Rated

After all these years, finally back

Last night’s time stamp.
Hard to get any closer without being on the stage.
We felt special and valued.

After all these years, finally back at Epcot’s Candlelight Processional.

It’s been so long since the last visit that i had almost forgotten.

We had a unique opportunity last night that we never enjoyed before.

The biggest dissatisfier at every theme park in the world (and perhaps in any industry) is waiting in line.

Couldn’t have asked for a more satisfying evening.

Sometimes Cast Members are treated like royalty.

Never gets old.

No really

It’s not called Show Show

American Idol 2018
Last night i watched the recorded Finals. As of 6am this morning, i still don’t know who won.

 

It’s not called Show Show.

It’s called Show Business.

Business.

People ride you when your song drops in the charts, or when it climbs too slowly.

People love you when your song is climbing.

You are responsible for both.

You.

You probably didn’t think being a star involved the business side.

Know what happens if you don’t figure out the business side?

Think “has-been”.

What do you notice and why?

bad show
First thought was, “Really?” Under the yellow sign is the same message.

 

hospital worker bad show
Kids and their devices these days. i never look for these things. They appear out of nowhere. He had been walking the entire length of the hall, which gave plenty of time to think about snapping a photo. The patient doesn’t know if he’s onstage or backstage – the Disney rule is – if you see Guests, you are onstage.

 

What do you notice and why?

My job requires me to observe and evaluate.

Constantly, and with great discernment.

That’s what i’m paid to do.

To notice things others can’t or won’t see.

So no, i’m not judging, i’m doing my job, whether i’m on the clock or not.
