Huddle up

Disney Institute trainers
My final Super Bowl engagement was Super Bowl 48 in New York/New Jersey. This is part of our team rehearsing (and having some fun).

Yesterday while prepping for a speech and searching for an older photo to use, i stumbled upon lots of Disney Institute photos.

The distraction was fun, of course.

The speech is a month away and there’s no ticking-clock pressure to stay focused.

Worth mentioning too that this speech preparation is a more concentrated effort to increase the use of photos and to have fewer slides with words. Additionally, any slide with words is being reevaluated to pare it to three words or less.

Am I The Only One?

Your attitude about your boss and coworkers is predictable

Almost invisible, the 10-foot gator is even less perceptible when swimming. Train your eye and heart to see things you normally wouldn’t. If you’re not a Tom Brady fan what’s your honest answer for why? PS. Football is not even remotely important to me, but i respect long-term excellence.

 

Your attitude about your boss and coworkers is predictable, in my opinion.

Three days from now, the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles compete in Super Bowl 52.

If you plan to watch the Super Bowl hoping the Patriots and Tom Brady lose, your mindset is poisoned.

Rather than see a dominant team (or player) do something extraordinary, you are instead sending a message to yourself that greatness is bad, especially when it happens to others and not you.

This poisons your work ethic and severely limits your ability to excel at work.

Six career observations from watching SuperBowl 47:

1. Team work is under rated

2. Expect the unexpected

3. Virtually everything’s a risk

4. Goals drive extraordinary behavior

5. The loser is still the second best overall, and no one cares

6. Winner takes all
