Time flies, no?

 

Time flies, no?

It’s been 15 years since first speaking here. And 30 years total at WDW.

The point is, Disney Institute, while a great idea at inception in 1996 has morphed into something not remotely part of the original vision.

Remarkably different.

This is a metaphor for our life.

Let that flexibility, challenge, and growth inspire you to reach ridiculously high.

Blogging isn’t the product, it’s the preparation

Sitting at Starbucks yesterday, contemplating the options for Mid Life Celebration’s website landing page, this video had me realize something.

 

 

My business centers on speaking.

Blogging isn’t the product, it’s the preparation.

The book is the product.

A big audience is a big responsibility, so is a small one.

 

Today I plan to do a speech in a way I have never done before. Just like last time. And the time before that.

Art is not always the best of the best. Art can be doing something in a way no one else does, or with a bandwidth no one else does, or both.

This is the same for all of us, speaker or no speaker.

Right or wrong? Should an author make sure there is no question they are for hire?

Disney's Polynesian Resort Aloha sign
Aloha. Hello. The book does not mention being for hire. Mistake?

 

Right or wrong? Should an author make sure there is no question they are for hire?

Because I did not.
