Necessity is the mother of invention

Necessity is the mother of invention.

Now is that time.

What time?

The time for necessity.

Here’s an opportunity…there’s a rising belief that millenials expect their personal problems (i call them challenges) to be business challenges – that business owners need to care about and solve their employee’s issues.

Fundamentally, i believe everyone is the CEO of You, Inc.

Meaning, you are personally responsible for everything in your life.

The opportunity is in equipping a generation of young adults who weren’t “parented to manifest personal ownership” – in essence, parenting has been dumped onto the shoulders of business owners.

If Disney Ran Your Life podcast may have an opportunity to help businesses empower their employees with personal responsibility.

No really

It’s not a priority sounds like this

Thank you note
Wrote this two days ago and tucked it under Chapin’s blanket so he’d see it before falling asleep.

‘It’s not a priority”, sounds like the following whether we say these two things or not…

  1. i don’t have time.
  2. i can’t afford it.

When something is a priority, we figure out a solution. If we don’t figure out a solution, it’s not a priority.

The one obvious place no one looks for solutions

The best solution is not where everyone is already looking.

Could This Change Your Life?

Overwhelmed by email?

jeff noel quote
Used Buffer’s Pablo app to create this last night.

 

Overwhelmed by email?

The harsh reality?

It’s our responsibility to figure it out.

Period.

This constant overwhelm will not fix itself.

Left unchecked, it poisons our soul so slowly we never notice.

It’s been a month now that i drew a line in the sand and asked:

Can i go to bed each night with no emails in my in-box, trash, and sent folders?

Like nearly everything, the answer is yes if we chose to make it so.

The CEO is primarily interested in the bottomline

Disney's Celebration Place
Woman using umbrella for shade, not rain, at Disney’s Celebration Place.

 

CEO’s and other senior executives want quick, cost effective solutions to things they’ve been unable to conquer.

My main job is finding creative ways to help them see their blindspot.

It’s gonna take time and money.

And a level of commitment they’ve never experienced before.

Note to self: Selling is the transfer of enthusiasm.
