Stumbling can be good

Stumbling can be good sometimes.

Earlier this week i stumbled upon a digital storyteller.

We both loved the insane serendipity to our connection. So random.

So potentially important.

We talk in a few days.

Why wait?

Thursday afternoon can be late to plan for a Friday meeting. Then there’s the weekend, etc.

PS. Happy Saturday (as i write this).

The story is what conncts emotionally

Walt Disney Keynote speakers
Up close and personal you can notice details otherwise undiscoverable.

The story is what connects emotionally.

The facts connect intellectually.

A personal, and meaningful story can go straight to the heart.

The heart is where commitment lives and flourishes.

Think about the intentionality required to carry a teddy bear, a bead jar, and a Disney Goofy hat to Kuwait to give an 18-minute speech.

Slow and steadily build your foundation for over-focusing on the same things you used to under-focus on or ignore.

Learn to be intentional where you used to be less intentional.

Are you leveraging your Founder’s Story?

Disney Speakers
A young Walt Disney.

Walt Disney said…

“I was all alone back then, I didn’t even have a Mouse.”

In his final years, “I only hope we never lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a Mouse.”

Morale: Can you imagine Disney without a Mouse? There was a time. So go easy on yourself when you’re starting out. And keep moving forward. A path won’t reveal anything new if you stop or only use the same vicinity.

Storytelling tips

Five storytelling tips here.

Everything speaks is a phrase we teach at Disney Institute, although we didn’t coin it.

For example: “Small details that are often ‘undermanaged’ or ignored ‘chip away’ at the customer experience.”
