Walt Disney Said

A Dreamer, and, A Doer
A Dreamer, and, A Doer

Walt Disney said many profound things. There are few on Earth that think Walt Disney was stupid and misguided.

Are you a Walt Disney fan? I mean, a fan of the man, the dreamer and doer?

After several days of long jungle jeff blog posts, I’m cutting this one short with a simple and profound Walt Disney quote, which summarizes how I want to think in 2010:

“If you can dream it, you can do it.”

In 2010, let’s pursue the dreams we’ve always had, but have not yet made our dramatic leap. Ya with me?


It’s our differences that unite us.

So, part of diversity is our belief system.  I celebrate Easter, and therefore, wish anyone reading this, “Happy Easter“!

Realizing that many of you do not celebrate Easter, I completely understand and totally respect our differences.  To you, may I please wish you a joyful day, in your special and unique way?

This is what Diversity is all about.  And many companies embrace Diversity, and I’m encouraged by the World’s progress.

When Walt Disney was dreaming, he said Epcot would be about two things.  Epcot would celebrate, everyday, the things that unite us, like technology, innovation, etc.  Epcot would also celebrate the things that make us different, like culture, beliefs, etc.

This is played out perfectly at the Epcot Theme Park in the two sections, Future World and World Showcase.

Make today a great day to remember what’s important to you and to try to celebrate it everyday!  Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂


What is wisdom and why is it so valuable?

Are you wise?  Am I wise?  How do any of us really know?

While I may or may not be wise, I do work very hard to take what I teach and use it personally.  Why?  Two reasons.  To show how common sense ideas can be applied anywhere and because it actually makes my life better.  Period.

Simple example, but I encourage you not to be tempted to dismiss it’s significance.  I never capitalize my name.  That’s a whole other story waiting to be told.

Back to the questions and the point.

What is wisdom?  How about this thought:

In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.”  —  anonymous


Seriously, wow!

A few weeks ago (here’s the link if you want instant access: www.junglejeff.net/?p=257 ), I wrote a post that contained the essence of this quote.

Do you know how long I lived my life strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia?

Wwwwaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy too long.

Now, not so much.  Not perfect by any means.  Never will be.


But, I am more razor-focused on World-Class delivery and content than ever.  Razor-focused.

I often wonder what took me so long to figure out the difference in results, when I’m razor-focused, compared to when I was loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.

Make it a GREAT, razor-focused day, because if you don’t, who will.  Carpe diem, jungle jeff  🙂

PS.  Tomorrow, the story of no caps. Maybe.
