What Are You Waiting For?

The most important question before spending money

cPanel PHP options
Yesterday Rob tutored me for four hours at my desk. All my blogs (19k+ posts) are on an outdated GoDaddy “Legacy” platform. We are migrating 16 sites from there to a new cPanel account with the latest tech options available.

Dear executive buyer, please keep asking yourself this question until you have a positive revelation.

What is this contract worth after my organization is exposed to, and changed by, the expert’s assistance?

  • What expenses will be slashed or eliminated?
  • What is the difference in organizational health before and after we complete a year-long legitimate effort?
  •  What short and long term worries and vulnerabilities become non-issues and how will that freedom feel?
  • What will the employee vibe be like when your culture is stronger, healthier, and more vibrant?
  • If you were to postpone starting for more than a year, could that indecision turn into two or three years (or never), and when you think about that how do you (and the entire organization) feel?

You should picture your previous life when you had few to no wellness habits and compare it to where you are today, now that you have integrated intentionality and consistency into how you behave in much healthier ways than before. What’s that worth? Hard to calculate, but blindingly obvious.

Worth noting that for a decade i’ve been a web and technology do-it-yourselfer by using GoDaddy’s inexpensive platform. That old way of thinking and doing is no longer effective for the way my business is evolving.

i’ve hired Rob on an indefinite monthly retainer to take my web and technology abilities into 2019 and beyond. This is going to change everything about the way i used to think and behave.

My old GoDaddy account’s highest PHP update is one update away from not supporting the WordPress blogs that contain my life’s work. And i never knew. Plus, the Legacy account has me trapped because it doesn’t currently offer even the lowest update solution.

Bottom line, what can be measured doesn’t always matter, and what matters can’t always be measured.

Disney Creativity secrets from a lifetime insider

Thinking Heads staff Miami with jeff noel
Smallest sized private Customer Service Keynote audience, and smallest venue ever since i began speaking in 1999.

What allows this type of creativity and innovation to happen?

The Disney cultural belief that great ideas can, and should, come from anywhere.

A passion for our purpose, diversity of perspective, deeply embedded collaborative norms, and excitement to do the impossible.

When you live on the inside for more than three decades, when you teach full-time the Disney business secrets to outsiders, and when you live to help others improve, there’s nothing that can stop you from putting a positive dent in the Universe.

One Question A Day?

Immediate gut reaction was an emphatic, “No!”

Cinderella Castle
One of her field experiences will be Disney’s backstage tour, “Keys to the Kingdom”.

 

Facebook message out of nowhere: “Hey, are you interested in doing a three-day program in Orlando?”

Her fee is low, in my opinion.

Immediate gut reaction was an emphatic, “No!”

But, practicing patience, i paused and thought about what i’d be giving up if i didn’t accept her offer. i sensed a greater value than just the money.

We had a nice (and brief) phone conversation. i still have content questions, agenda questions, and ethical questions. Hopeful all those will pass with flying colors when we talk again in a few days.

Then the only question remaining is, “”Can we agree on a fee.”

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.

Leadership progress is made slowly and surely

Disney Springs new crosswalk
Our first use of the new Disney Springs crosswalk, Friday, November 13.

 

Leadership progress is made slowly and surely. In between all the photos of our life living next to Walt Disney World is the reality that life is challenging for every Family, no exceptions. Being a parent is the greatest leadership responsibility we will ever have. It’s one that tests every fiber in my body. And i love rising to the occasion every time.
