Of course business is complicated

One of them is a Disney executive and unable to travel freely, simply because the job demands his on-site presence. The others are on a 10th-grade trip to San Francisco.

 

Of course business is complicated, which is why we must fight like heck to simplify everything.

When it comes to culture

Culture definition
Profoundly simple, simply profound.

 

When it comes to culture, it’s brutally simple.

Confusion repels.

Clarity attracts.

Culture by design, or culture by default.

What we accept by default becomes the standard.

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.

Biggest career April Fool ever?

Disney Customer Service Keynote Speakers
Yesterday’s 10-mile run included a mile walk through Magic Kingdom.

 

Biggest April Fool ever?

Some small things that were ridiculously minor tweaks, but i didn’t do them.

Why not?

Why don’t any of us (broad stereotype) do the easy (life-changing) tweaks standing right in front of us?

The good news is some time later i experimented with trying the opposite:

  • Moving the home office desk from facing a wall to facing out a window in 2009.
  • Moving from always speaking up in every meeting to never speaking up, in 2007.

The notion of “doing a 180” really can pay astonishing dividends – game changing dividends.

In the two examples above, the reward was seeing things everyday that you were never in a position to see.

An unheralded part of being a leader is making each day special

jeff noel on bike ride
Be creative. Be hopeful. Be grateful.

 

An unheralded part of being a leader is making each day special.

Easy to glorify and cheer for the month, quarter, year, or record setting achievements.

Yesterday – Father’s Day – was a solemn reminder.

Wife and son out of state taking care of important Family business.

A Dad, a leader, all alone.

Sad?

Not in a million years.

We have come to know the true meaning of Father’s day when we learn to celebrate it every single day.
