They Really Want to Be Excellent

Last one, for now. And I have to tell you, They must really want to be excellent.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this insightful journey into the relative simplicity for having a world-class corporate culture.  It works for personal branding too.

How does a one-take-You tube video, five-a-day blogger know? If I have to explain it to you, you won’t understand.

Be well and do GREAT work!

jeff noel says, Somebody Stop Me?

Hey, it’s your crazy, one-take-You Tube video guy, jeff noel, here. You know, the five-a-day blogger. Somebody stop this guy. Please.

Did you bust your hump this week? I mean, to deliver excellence in everything you do?

Wait, I’ve got more.  Look, I realize that my style will annoy some people. It’s not intentional.  It’s simply who I am. Okay?

And part of this is the rather intense sense of urgency I feel, which is why we can not wait for others to keep up. Wish there was time to slow down for the slower ones, but there isn’t.

The truth is, being excellent takes everything you’ve got. So if you want to be world-class, but don’t want to work, this ain’t the guy or the blogs for you.

Have fun, avoid negativity, dream big, work hard, be creative, skip excuses, and just keep doing it.

Are We Listening?

Huh?  Exactly.

Hey, here’s a one-take-You Tube video from me again (howdy), jeff noel, the five-a-day blogger.

Are you starting to see how this might work for you? I mean, I’m just a common guy, working really hard at this social media phenomenon.

A few months back, I saw a You Tube video featuring Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, answering questions as part of some panel.

What Bob Iger said, paraphrased  from memory, was this, “Disney isn’t embracing social media.  Disney is embracing the customer. The customer is embracing social media.”

Would your customers describe you or your business as hard working?  You know, staying current and relevant with their needs and desires?

We would hope our answer is a resounding yes. Why?  Because, our competition may be invisible at this point in history.

You see, there are others out there who can see something that our customers need and want, but our customers haven’t identified it yet. And neither have we.

Those other people who can see it?  They’re changing the world.

The View Never Changes If

If you’re not the lead reindeer, the view never changes. Being emplyed is like that too.  And it reminds me that as a leader, it’s incumbent on me to see the future and describe to others what it looks like.

Someone has to set the vision.  If it ain’t the leader, what have you got?  Seriously.  If the leader doesn’t do it, you’re in serious trouble.

Imagine these guys without a lead reindeer:

PS. Okay, so they’re not exactly reindeer, but you get the point. Make your day great. You know where you’re headed, right?

What Do You Mean?

What’s it mean in my LinkedIn Profile, when it says “I give speeches to change the world”?

Well, it’s a bold statement to be sure. And, it’s essence is placed in the profile for a very specific reason.

Is it possible to give speeches to change the world? Indeed.  Just ask this audience in Dallas, Texas.  Dalton Sherman, an 11-year old fifth grader gave a speech.  Maybe he’ll help change the world in Dallas.

If you don’t have nine minutes to listen to the whole thing, simply watch the first minute.

That’s what I’m trying to say, “I give speeches to change the world”.
